Goof mouse and keyboard worth it

Im building my first computer and i just realized how * expensive a good keyboard and mouse is. I could buy a decent mouse and a membrane keyboard for a total of 40$cad or if i would get the cheapest cherry mx kb and a good mouse it will cost me140$ cad. My question is, is it really worth the 100$ price increase for a first time builder who has no experience with keyboards and mice.

Thx

You could always get non- Cherry MX switches. They're still pretty reputable, from what I've heard. I personally just got a Corsair STRAFE for Christmas with Cherry MX Browns and I love it. I'm sure the off-brand switches (usually just called browns, reds, blues, etc) should be fine.

However, if you don't want to spend the money and it's not worth it to you for a mechanical experience, then you don't need one.

^ this, there is usually very little difference between cherry and off brand switches.
