Ireland?
What keyboard, mouse and headset are you currently using?
Do you want LEDs? If so, what colour preferred? Also what do you want LEDs on?
Any preferred switches for keyboard?
Anything else?

Headset, HyperX Clouds. Easy. I've left a couple of options for mice for you. The Xornet and M65 are RGB, the G403 is not RGB. Xornet is the smallest mouse of the 3.

As for keyboard, bit of a tougher decision. I've left a bunch of options for you. The Rosewill keyboard is cheap and easy, nice little mech keyboard, MX Blue switches. The K70 is by far the best keyboard here, and for £80, it's an absolute steal. However, it comes with red LEDs which might look out of place in your set-up. The K70 is using MX Speed switches which are the go to for a lot of gamers. The CM keyboard would go nice with the Xornet, and is also RGB. The CM one comes with MX Brown switches which are similar to MX Blues, but MX Blues are 'clickier'. Lastly, the MX Strafe's. I've included one with MX Brown and one with MX Blue switches. The Strafe is sort of a watered down K70, same sort of layout but not as good quality(though the Strafe is still a great keyboard). Again with the Strafe your locked in to red LEDs. Not sure why you'd choose the Strafe over the RGB CM with MX Browns since the Strafe is more expensive, but hey the option is yours. Personally, I'd get the K70(which is why I have one), but the CM MasterKeys would be a close 2nd thanks to dat RGB.
