Hello, I am wondering if it is possible to get a decent mechanical gaming keyboard for under $50. Right now I'm just using a stock Dell keyboard, which is okay, but it's membrane so it isn't optimal for gaming. I really want the Razer Black Widow Chroma, but $170 for a keyboard is just too much right now. If anyone has any suggestions on a good mechanical keyboard for around $50 that would be great. Thanks!


P.S. a couple I found that look alright.

Maybe you don't understand what a mechanical keyboard is, as neither of those are.    The ebay keyboard is a Spanish keyboard, you don't want me to tell you how painful that is, the @ sign is an alternate shift of the Q.


A mechanical keyboard will tell you what kind of switches are used, normally Cherry and a color.


Here is a company that specializes in mechanical keyboards, and from their prices you're looking at $100.  I've never bought from them and only point them out for pricing information.

Do you prefer wired, wireless or Bluetooth?
What OS do you use? Combo-keyboard mouse perhaps?

Have you looked at the options in Newegg.com under gaming keyboards? They have quite a few options that you could read about and check-out the reviews with-in your budget.
