Just move your gaming cluster over to ESDF and then you'll have more keys available to your left.

No worries I've tried 2 such keyboards (Saitek Cyborg and Sidewinder x4), but it just feels to awkward for me.

Tried that too. Then I found out I have a retarded pinky finger lol. I'm thinking if I can use the analog stick on the gamepad for movement, then that'll open up 12 more buttons (with modifiers) for me to use, which should work perfect.

That's technically not a gamepad. A gamepad is your stereotypical game console controller (doesn't matter what the controller plugs into though, be it console or PC). I may have misread your post however.

In that case, I would simply use the key pad on the side of your keyboard, or if you want something easier to access (or if your keyboard lacks a keypad), just get a USB one, or just get the key thing you linked to (or a cheaper alternative).

If you're looking to get a gamepad gamepad, then yeah, xbox controller or if you have the spare change, something like this:



I have one, got it for about $15, but that was back in 2007. Seems to be more expensive now, but works great with my wireless PS2 controller.

Actually I think may have mistermed it in my OP. I think the proper term is a Gaming Keypad. In any case, I can't use my keyboard's numpad since I need that hand on the mouse for turning and adjusting the camera. As for the gamepad, I have an Xbox controller, so all I would need is the USB reciever for my PC

Gaming Keypad would make more sense with what you posted. In which case, can't really help you there beyond what the first half of my previous post mentioned.

Did Razer buy Belkin's gaming keypad? Just looked it up on the Belkin site and when I clicked on Shop Now it took me to the Razer site...
