(After years of 'gaming' rubber domed boards - I've found mech boards to be a breath of fresh air. It's a personal opinion, as well as many other converts, that mech boards are simply better all round. )
DAS models have a USB hub (no idea where you're from, but here's an example) Metadot Das Keyboard Professional Model S Mechanical Keyboard - Metadot - DASK3PROMS1 (8 55800 00116 6)
Some 'others' that have USB ports:
SteelSeries 7G Professional, Corsair Vengeance K90 MMO, Razer BlackWidow/Ultimate
*NB some of these others, like the Razer and Corsair are 'hybrids' - not all keys are mechanical switches.
There are plenty to choose from - although the DAS is probably the 'best quality that matches your requirements. The others, like the Razer - aren't in the same quality sphere as the DAS.
If there is a 'downside' to mech boards, it's that they are louder to type on. MX Blues/Browns are tactile 'clicky' switches. Blues are the loudest.
As for mice, I've been using a Razer Imperator 2012 and it's turned out to be the most accurate and comfortable mouse I've used for years. But when it comes to mice, there is definitely 'one' no mouse that suits all.

I had that keyboard and to be brutally honest - it's an absolute piece of crap. NKO (rollover/ghosting) problems, crap macro implementation and overall crap quality. Didn't even last 10 months. (It did look cool while it lasted though
