Yeah, most people tend to bottom out when gaming, especially when game intensity cranks up - at least I do. How much typing do you do vs. gaming? I game, but not hardcore so I type more than I game = MX Browns for me. If you primarily game and don't type much, then you might be better off with MX Red switches especially since you like them. FWIW, I always used to bottom out each keystroke, but I'm finding that I do so less and less when typing since I got the G710+. The tactile bump does improve your typing IMO though not instantaneously.

If I go for the Cherry MX Browns I will probably get the Logitech G710+ or maybe one of the CM Storm models if I want to save money..


JMO, but if you decide to go for MX Red switches rather than Brown, I would definitely wait for Corsair to release the K95 and pay extra rather than get the K90. Budgeting/saving money is certainly important, but keep in mind that whichever mechanical keyboard you buy, you'll likely use it for years. So you may be better off in the long run spending the extra money. As much as I like my G710+, the K95 looks great. It's definitely my current top pick for Cherry MX Red switch keyboards.
