While some hardcore nerds like to tweak their computers by overclocking or installing new internal components, often the best way to improve your compter experience is as easy as plugging something into a USB port. Yep, having a nice keyboard or mouse is the kind of small expense that will make you smile every time you (or a lucky giftee) sit down to compute. Amazon's pushing some cool accessories today through their Gold Box Deals, and Dealzmodo's here to sort them out for you. Plus, if you hurry, you might still be able to get Super Saver shipping before Christmas.



SteelSeries Call of Duty Black Ops II Gaming Mouse: this is a plug-in laser mouse with a high DPI for games. It's really the legendary Sensei model, which usually retails for $80 and up, but if you can put up with some Call of Duty graphics, you can get it for $40. [Amazon]


HGST Touro Desk 4 TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive: Four (count 'em) terabytes of sweet storage space for $160. USB 3. That is all. [Amazon]


CM Storm Trigger Backlit Mechanical Keyboard: There comes a time in every geek's life that they have to decide whether to become a mechanical keyboard snob. After all, you spend hours a day at your computer. The snobbiest of the snobby like Cherry MX switches. You've got two cheap mechanical keyboard choices today: the red or blue (pill), both for $70—after a stupid mail-in rebate—and they're both backlit. [Amazon]


Logitech Wireless Touchpad with Multi-Touch: Windows 8 is the first Windows that leaves the mouse behind. Sure, you can still click around, but you can't swipe, or gesture, and then what's the fun of the Metro Modern UI? This is a cheap ($20) Logitech Touchpad that'll get your fingers wet in the multitouch pool. [Amazon]
