KB meets minimum requirements for Fighters

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Been looking for a good keyboard that's exceptional for fighting games. I'm not really that serious on it (that's why I have a limit on how much I want to spend), though It would be awesome if someone could recommend me a good budget keyboard that is:

-Under $100 if possible (maybe under $50)

-USB preferably

-6KRO or more

-Don't need a num pad, a condensed keyboard (like the slim ones) would be good enough. Though since money has more priority for me, I woudln't mind if the cheaper one has the numpad.

-As for the durability and quality, I do prefer if it would last longer.

Also, I've also been wondering if having a PS/2 kb plugged in a PS/2 to USB adapter would make any difference? I've been reading that PS/2 kb's have better performance than USB.

I'm just assuming if someone knows a good budget keyboard with good quality build and 6KRO atleast and whose been playing fighting games on it. I don't really mash my keyboard (i piano the keys at worst), so if the keyboard is exceptionally durable aslong as it's in easy use, then that's okay.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I play Street Fighter 2 - 4 on KB if anyone needs more info btw

You could look into noppoo choc minis they have more than enough rollover and you can get your choice switch. They are available through ebay for under $100

I was actually considering a HitBox "arcade stick", though I can play much the same on a keyboard (using the space bar as jump). Been playing on Dpad, keyboard, and stick. Stick is the worst, Dpad is second, and my best is on KB. Thanks for the suggestions btw!

I much prefer a stick for fighting games, but too each their own.
Like magna224 said, the Noppoo Choc Mini may be a good choice for you if you wish to have NKRO over USB, as it allows this. It's a small for factor board that still retains numpad functionality and media keys via modifier keys. As far as durability goes, they are solid keyboards. The one thing to watch out for is the older version had an issue with very premature keycap wear, the newest version has fixed this.

Edit: Here's one of the most reliable sellers of the keyboard:
http://www.vendio.com/stores/E-sport.../catId=3982937

I bought mine from him as well as many other on this board and over at GH. Also, he only sells the newer version with improved keycap durability.

Oh thanks alot! I'll sure to look into this site now! I was actually searching for a site selling em. Thanks a lot man. And yeah, I'm actually not THAT bad on stick, but surprisingly I'm alot better on KB. You guys would too if you get into it's learning curve. It's just the fact that you can execute things alot of faster when you have all fingers assigned to a button.

I concur with the choc mini. the kbc poker is another option, too, although might not be as conducive to tense matches due to the pcb-mount (still solid though).

why not get a hitbox, though? sanwa buttons, yet keyboard style...

Both come out over $100 shipped. You can snag a Choc Mini for under $100 shipped.
