Best mechanical gaming keyboard for $100 or less?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am looking to find a mechanical gaming keyboard, and I was wondering what the best one for $100 or less would be. I am open to any suggestions, but it must have Cherry MX RED switches.

First check here http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/keyboard/#s=4&sort=a8

Then decide if you want lighting and whatnot. I hear that http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AOIRCI6/?tag=pcpapi-20

http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=264

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009FTWKYG/?tag=pcpapi-20

Are all good keyboards with red switches and backlighting.
