Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Questions

I was on Amazon.com looking at the Logitech gaming mice and keyboards. In particular, this keyboard:
http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-920-0...=3CXCNQ4RANJ32

And this mouse:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...SIN=B002J9GDXI

I've never owned a gaming mouse or keyboard before. So I am wondering what the benefits really are in gameplay. Starting off with the mouse, I can't recall what my Microsoft laser mouse DPI is but I'm sure it's nowhere near the 5700 of the Logitech gaming mouse above. How much difference does that really make say when playing a shooter? How does it affect gameplay? Is it easier to aim quickly and accurately? Does it help you to play better? There must be some reason people like them. I'd like to understand how beneficial they are. As for all the extra buttons I don't honestly see myself using them. Do people really find all those buttons on a mouse helpful? What for? What do people activate with them?

On to the Logitech gaming keyboards. The one I linked above I think is their entry level model. I like the backlit keys feature. That is pretty cool. Some of the other stuff seems pretty useless to me personally. The defining feature of this keyboard really seems to be the macro keys. So the question is, what are they good for? I'm trying to imagine what I'd want to macro in a shooter for example. What would I want to macro playing some RPG? What would I want to macro playing World of Warcraft? Once again, people like these a lot for some reason but I am honestly clueless about what specifically it is. So please enlighten the clueless!

Thanks a lot for any feedback on this stuff. I appreciate it.

never had a gaming mouse.

used a belkin nostromo n52 for years though. just found it more comfortable and practical for RTCW and UT.

apparently, some cünt call razor makes them nowadays...

cool.

depends on the games youre playing i guess. if youre a WoW player then i doubt youll need any of that crap. its all gnomes and trading coins for armor and wheat and shit. so meh.

having said that - ive never played WoW so im just talking bollocks really.

A Logitech G13 keyboard and a Logitech G700 mouse make a good combo.
