A cluttered desk may be the sign of a busy mind, but it’s also a hassle (and where are you going to put your soda with all those cables in the way?) Get rid of those extra power cables, connections and cords with this assortment of great wireless PC accessories for the soon-to-be clutter-free gamer.

Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Wrath Wireless Gaming Headset

Price: $99.99

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better set of high-end wireless headphones for under $100. Featuring a detachable, noise canceling microphone; highly-customizable equalization and ultra-surround sound via THX TruStudio Pro; built in Bass emulation and auto-balancing volume even with multiple programs running; you’ll wonder how you ever dealt with all the screeching and unexpected white noise in Vent and TeamSpeak without it. Battery life should last you a full ‘work’ day’s worth of gaming (8 hours) and, if you forget to plug them in before bed, you can ever recharge them during use.

Logitech MK550 Black USB RF Wireless Ergonomic Wave Combo

Price: $69.99

If you’re going to be at the computer all day, put your hands up somewhere nice: they are going to be doing most of the work, after all. This keyboard/mouse combo from Logitech features a padded wrist-rest to stave off the dreaded carpal tunnel; ergonomically curved keyboard without the much-maligned ‘break’ down the middle; contoured moused with a gripped rubber scroll-wheel and dual thumb buttons with long battery life: go an estimated 3 years without swapping batteries out of the keyboard and 2 for the mouse (online workers/gamers will undoubtedly put this estimate to the test). Another nice touch it that both the mouse AND the keyboard work off the the same USB receiver.

Logitech Z906 500W 5.1 Speakers

          Price: $340.99

Fus-ro-DAH! Sorry, I got a little bit ahead of myself: The power of a fully THX-certified Dolby Surround Sound 5.1 system awaits you… and it’s wireless! Make Skyrim’s dragon-shouts rattle the entirety of your den (or more aptly named ‘nerd cave’) with 500 Watts of power, or use the remaining five audio inputs to connect to your TV, iPod, Xbox or DVD/Bluray player and bring the power of 3D audio to all your electronics. The Z906 setup comes with 4 wall-mountable ‘satellite’ speakers, 1 center channel speaker (also mountable), as well as a 165 Watt subwoofer and remote-IR control console and a 2-year manufacturer warranty on both parts and labor.
