I plan to buy a mechanical keyboard for gaming. This will be my first mechanical keyboard so I want make sure that I make the right choice, and I have never typed on a mechanical keyboard either so I don't really have an opinion about any kind of key or company. I want to be able to use my keyboard to type often and also game, so which type of switch is right for me? I don't particularly mind if it is loud, although I do prefer the sound of the browns to that of blues. I would like some audible feedback and I fear also that the things had to be compromised on keyboards to make them "silent" would detract from the important aspects of a keyboard. I would like it to be fullsize and with a numberpad, I don't care about backlighting, and I would like labeled keys. Also I don't want it to look particularly stupid like the Madcatz STRIKE. My budget is about $100 I would be willing to go a little over for a product that I will be happy with. I have heard that Leopold, Ducky, and Coolermaster make good mechanical keyboards but that is all I know. I know also that Logitech made a mechanical keyboard and I generally like their stuff but that doesn't mean that it is the best one out there or even good at all. Congratulations if you made it through this wall of text and thanks for any help.
