I realise the good ones aren't cheap, but what would be a good mechanical keyboard, primarily suited to gaming, that won't break the bank? I'm in the U.K, which as usual has fewer choices and higher prices when it comes to electronics.
Look into the Steelseries 7G or the 6Gv2 if you don't want all the misc. features of the 7G.
Mechanical KBs suited to gaming would be the Cherry Blacks and Reds. Reds are rather rare though, Blacks are more common. The 7G is 115 US dollars and the 6Gv2 was supposed to be 99 US dollars. They are both worth the price tag.
I know others are going to recommend the Cherry Browns and possibly even the blues, if you want this Keyboard to be suited towards gaming ( FPS, RTS, even some MMOs ) get the Cherry Blacks, you will not regret it.
