In some games i'm having problems finding the right key. When it's really dark i feel desoriented quickly. I need some keyboard > eye coordination at some points.

i dont know much about keyboards but need one for my gaming PC, thanks for the help!

Unfortunately, you just won't be able to find a back-lit mechanical keyboard for that price. The absolute cheapest back-lit mech boards are sitting around $80... something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823162027
Your best bet is to save up some more money (what I'd suggest), or look for a bigger named used/refurbished keyboard.
As far as orange back-light, you've got Ducky Zero http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=82589&vpn=DK2108S-AUSALT&manufacture=Ducky or Razer Battlefield 4 BlackWidow http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823114034... there are others, but these seem to be the cheapest options (still, these are in the $100-$120 price range)

But im looking and learning
Oh and id like to change the keys to incorporate ocn flames and also trying to find stuff related to Stargate, again im researching around and what not just would like to see what you guys find and what not (im willing to pay a pretty price to be happy with my purchase not get half a55ed)

I was going to just pull the trigger on a Ducky Shine 3 with brown switches... but I have not been able to find any in stock in a long time.
The Ducky DK2108S is my only available option that I can find.

Any other boards that might meet that criteria to look at? Full size only please.

You could check out a Steelseries Merc Stealth.
You can get them pretty cheap now, and it's a pretty good board imho.

I had a few keys that were a little loose / wobbly after a while, so it's not the most solid board ever.
That being said, it lasted me 5 years or so, before I spilled a drink on it and wrecked it.
Up until I wrecked it, every key worked, I never had any LED's fail, and no issues with it or the software.

It has a dedicated gaming section for your left hand which I found really nice, and it came with some decent software to allow you to re-assign each key to whatever key press you'd like, had macro buttons, could change between purple, blue, and red, and had three different brightness levels (4 if you count off).

I found the dedicated gaming section helped me avoid accidental key presses of the wrong buttons, and to be fairly comfortable.

I much prefer mech keyboards once I tried them, but for a rubber dome keyboard I really did enjoy it.

What about a Ducky Shine 3 over a Zero Shine?

EDIT: Apparently I can't read, let me look for one.

EDIT 2: I've been foiled, the MX Brown/ blue backlight version is more popular than expected. tongue.gif

I know rolleyes.gif I can wait if the Shine 3 would be preferable over a zero.
