BF3 Gaming keyboard for $30.00 or less

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I was looking for a new keyboard since mine cost like $10 and is over 2 years old and worn out. It's funny because I have a $1300 monitor, and spent $2,000 on my rig and managed to cheap out on the keyboard department. But I'm just wanting a nice keyboard to play battlefield 3 on and program on. Though I can't really spend more than $30 so first thing I did was try searching on newegg and I gotta say I like this so far:

What do you guys think any better offers online? without buying used of course

I'd suggest bumping your budget up a bit and aim for a mechanical keyboard. Can find decent ones on sale regularly, just saw one for $55 with blues. Much better quality than some cheap $20 keyboard you're looking at.

So... you have a $1300 monitor, but you max budget for a keyboard is $30. Makes sense... not.

mmm those were the good days when I had a job and was living with my parents. Now I'm a full time student living on my own. So the circumstances have changed since those purchases. More than $30 will start digging out of my food / gas money.

Well if that's the case, then the one you linked might be pretty good. Can't find any better ones for that budget with a quick search and read biggrin.gif

Yea I'll look around a lil more before I have to go to class. It appears that keyboard I linked has a special combo with a mouse that has the same technology for only $3 more. which would be nice to have for my laptop while at school. Hmmm sounds too good to be true gonna do a lil more digging.

You should be and you probably heard this a thousand times. But stay in school not only that but do good and try to get a scholarship. Unless you wanna be looking at $40k+ in debt before your even 21. And that's about as cheap as it gets as far as a bachelors goes.
