The Choice for that Weird Nerd in Your Life

GameBall Gaming Trackball

Trackballs used to be a must-have peripheral for creative and business computing. I personally loved them for gaming! In fact, I was extremely competitive in Sierra’s TRIBES for quite some time thanks to the trackball’s fast sweeping motions and precise tracking. Enter: The GameBall – a gaming trackball with five different DPI settings and Omron gaming switch buttons. Simply put: I love this weird thing.

Razer DeathAdder V2

Razer’s DeathAdder gaming mouse is a staple at this point. It is basically their new BoomSlang (for those of you old enough to remember that amazing mouse). The DeathAdder V2 might not be the latest generation of the gaming mouse, but for its reasonable price point and multitude of features you won’t go wrong with it. Great performance at a reasonable price.

Price: $69.99
