I've been my fair share of COD in the past few months, and I'm starting to think I need to fix a few things in various areas, as I consistently am middle-of-the-road when it comes to kills, and part of the reason I believe is my equipment. So I'm going to throw the question out there regarding equipment.
1. Does all of the "better" players eventually need to move to high end keyboards and/or mice?
2. I was looking at razer stuff? Yay / Nay?
3. What should be the order of "improvements" in my approach. Should I instead start with equipment upgrades, graphics card/screen rendering tweaks, faster computer, or something else?
I often spec the highest scorers probably 50% of the time in game, trying to pick up on subtle tips.. and it seems that some of the best players have lightning reflexes. What is the the most likely reason for this?

What I find really makes a difference is my 50-70 ping... If I'm lagging and it's like 120+ I see a noticeable dip in performance.
Maybe you could tell us what you're working with to see if anything would be worth upgrading.

Number 1 thing that improved my fps abilities, a Steelseries 5L. Pair it with any lazer/optical mouse and you are gold.
Steelseries 5L? link?
I have a wireless mouse ...Microsoft brand, and a wireless microsoft Keyboard. I figured I have lag from the wireless aspect.
My pings are always 40-60, and I'm normally in the top 3 fastest pings (when ping is working on HC no marty server)... I have a decent router/cable modem setup, so I think I'm prolly good there...

gaming Keyboard isnt really a must if ur playing shooters only, tho if ur going mmorpg's its very handy:)
I got a normal microsoft keyboard... [/url=http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/p/digital-media-keyboard-3000/J93-00001]this keyboard[/url] is very well designed and doesnt have the big keys like normal one, so no pain in the fingers after 4 hours of gaming It can be compared with a laptops keyboard
Hope this helps...
Oh yeah, i got the newest graphic card too, cause this comes so handy... also always play with wired internet, can lower ur ping with alot ^^
extra ram is also an option,, but you can do so many things,,, mouse is like THE most important one i think

I have a $15 Walmart mouse and it changes colours! I'm on a laptop so no special keyboards
wow! and you still manage to rack em and stack em with that setup!
I figured for sure you'd have the high end stuff watching your game play...
