Is it just me, or does it really seem like there is a new big retail holiday every other month? On the second day of this year's Amazon Fall Prime Day deals, you might not have much money left, especially if you've been impulse buying like I have.
The good news is that if you've been waiting to pick up a new mouse or keyboard, or you've finally decided to upgrade your SDD, you can still get some good stuff for less than a Benjamin.
To start, I found a couple of my favorite gaming mice marked down quite nicely: the Razer Viper Ultimate on sale for $90 and Logitech G305 Lightspeed for $35. I've used the Viper Ultimate for years and love the feel of it and the fact that it comes with its own little charging dock.
The Logitech G305 is pretty much the perfect wireless budget mouse. It is lightweight and comfy, and it travels well. More importantly, it's got over 200 hours of battery life on a single AA battery.

It's very 'computer lab' chic.

$69.99 $34.99 at Newegg (save $35)
Normally the pricier cousin of our favorite budget gaming headset, the Corsair HS65 are discounted to the point they're actually cheaper than the other set. I'd call that a win. The recent Corsair headsets have really impressive mics, now permanently attached flip-up options, and the sound is surprisingly good for a pretty standard headset, too.

However, the Corsair HS65 for $35 is a steal if you want a more traditional gaming headset at a scary-low price.
