So, the other day I found out I still have a load of Xmas money. Now thinking back I have a custom built machine, razor naga mouse and gaming headphones the only other thing I don't have is a keyboard. I noticed when I am playing SWTOR that it is hard for me to get the correct button presses for each ability. I have spent the last 3 or 4 days looking around. I particular fan of razor but some of their keyboards seem somewhat meh. to me. None of them really stand out except for their overpriced SWTOR keyboard which costs 250$?

Does anyone have any recommendations? Price is not object. I hear steelseries sells some top of the line hardware also :).

Thanks for any help that you guys give me

Problem solved.

Mechanical keyboards are definitely the go.

I recently bought a Thermaltake eSports Meka G1 and it is awesome, absolutely love it and couldn't ever go back to non mech again.

There's heaps and heaps of discussion about which sort of mech KB's have the best switches and you can drive yourself crazy trying to work out what is best so my advice is to make sure you try them first to get one that feels right to you and from there you will never look back.

Good luck and let us know what you end up getting.

I would have to agree with Atarios and Vavena, the mechanical keyboards have a much nicer feel to them. Like Snookemz said the type of switch determines the feel of the keyboard. I would probably go with MX Cherry Blues for the feedback and that great click clack sound.

A lot of these gaming keyboards are cool at first but more times than not you will forget.
