Sold it. I rarely used the keypad and missed separate arrow keys a lot more than I expected. I also prefer the Deck's more subtle lighting and PBT caps.^ What about your Cooler Master Storm QuickFire TK?
New keyboard and mouse: Deck Francium Pro (MX Browns/White LEDs) and Razer Naga Hex.
I love everything about this Deck, though I still type faster/more accurately on my Logitech K750. The Deck is my gaming board.
As my beloved Diamondback ages, I've been tying to find an acceptable replacement for over a year. The Razer Naga Hex comes closest to the feel of the D'back, so far. I wish like hell that Razer would do a D'back refresh.
^ Welcome to the world of mechanical keyboards.
You can buy a mechanical gaming keyboard that incorporates the features of your G11 (backlighting, macro keys, etc.).
Looks like that board comes with Cherry MX Black switches, which are linear and firm. You're in for a treat once you try Blues, Browns, Greens, Clears, Reds, etc. I like tactile switches the best, although Reds aren't bad for linear.
I avg 2.70 KDR in all FPS's, ground pound only no vehicle whoring, my aim is on point w/ the below setup, you don't need crazy DPI. I find the (mx518) G400 to still be one of the best gaming mice out there.
Corsair Gunmetal K70 - Cherry MX Blue
G400 - ADNS-3090 sensor, 800 DPI @ 500hz - Fresh teflon feet
I highly recommend this mouse pad, I've tried the GGing, Razer Speed, Corsair MM200 and Hyper X. This one is the best IMO, it's very low friction...
ENHANCE GX-MP2 XL Extended Gaming Mouse Pad Mat (31.5" x 13.75") with Low-Friction Tracking Surface and Non-Slip Backing:
Free is always nice! Congrats and enjoy it. That keyboard will provide good service for many years to come. Not only do they feel nice, they are very durable and will continue working long after rubber dome keyboards decide to give up the ghost. My rubber dome boards always seemed to meet an early demise, whether it be due to a spill, keys stopped working, etc. I don't think I've ever had a mechanical board die or develop problems other than shiny keys.
The QcK isn't as fast as the ENHANCE GX-MP2.Do you know if they make a version of that mouse pad that is just black? I looked around, but couldn't find anything other than the blue pattern.
Nice Keyboard, the reflex lab is usually $20 also. It should be back in stock soon.I like the look of the Qck, but if the GZ-MP2 is faster I might just learn to live with the blue. It is also on the cheap end so that's nice. The reflex lab one looks nice also, but the only one I see is on Ebay for $65 currently.
I recently ditched all mouse pads and now just use my mouse on my desk. Smooth operation and control ever since. Should have done it a lot sooner.

can you game on these like doing shift+w+space, etc?
I've noticed a black gunky film that accumulates on the skids after a few days of using the mouse on my desk. Very strange, because I cleaned the desk thoroughly before deciding to forego any mouse pad. I'm going to pull my old Icemat out of storage and see if it does as well as the desk without this gunk build up problem.I like the lower thermal conductivity of my mouse pad vs my desk. Just for that I would use a pad. Another reason being that the surface of my desktop is not 100% flat, there are some very local imperfections that the mouse pad helps smooth over. I am using the Steelseries QcK mini.
