    It depends on the game in question which in some types of games can be a very limiting factor so it's best to avoid disproportion between those two (bottleneck).

    That's true and why I said the CPU does matter. I wouldn't think a modern 6 core CPU would bottleneck anything.

    You're pretty much fine with what you have. Just don't expect PUBG to run well (Which is pretty true even on more powerful machine, no one is to blame but the devs).

    I see $107 worth of "gaming" headphones, "gaming" mouse, and a "gaming" keyboard. Whatever "gaming" is supposed to mean.

    That amount would go a long way toward more CPU, more graphic card, or SSD.

    But, as always, it's your money.

    Either way, you need mouse and keyboard. And those prices are pretty cheap for those. Gaming usually means fancy lights and more configurable options.

    It most definitely does not. I've yet to build or see any gaming rig where "fancy lights" added frames or image quality to any gaming experience. I've not even seen bench marks account for that. C'mon parks. We've had this conversation before

    Gaming keyboards often are backlit, some with RGB. Gaming mice also tend to have lighting options too.

    Somebody questioned his "gaming keyboard, mouse, and headset" and said "gaming, whatever that means". With those peripherals it often means lights and more configurable options.

    I am not saying the lights improve the gaming experience.

    The point is that you can game perfectly fine on a $15 dollar keyboard/mouse comboset. If they still sell them new, get a Creative Fatal1ty headset to go with that. Its a good and cheap headset. Totals about $50 for the lot and you save $57 bucks to spend on hardware that will actually make a difference.

    Please don't look at what I have because I have the above mentioned Creative headset, a Roccat Kone[+] and a Logitech G510. Mouse and keyboard alone add up to € 150,-

    But for typing long texts, I still prefer the 10 bucks HP at work. And some kind old Logitech MX mouse.
