It can really depend on how serious of a gamer you are. If you have spent a great deal of time perfecting your technique and need a keyboard that can be considered perfect for the gamer who has perfected and polished her/her technique, then yeah I say avoid the Cherry MX Blues and go with the Cherry MX Blacks. But if you are like me and haven't spent any time polishing your gaming technique and prefer to just have fun, then the Cherry MX Blues are an option to consider. Manyak and others who have more than one mechanical keyboard have expressed a preference for the Cherry MX Blues for gaming.
So how serious of a gamer are you?

Again, try to go with a used or even a refurbished keyboard. You'll be able to end up with a really good, previously-expensive mechanical keyboard this way.
Yeah, I had to do the same thing. I thought about it for more than a couple of weeks.
It's a very important decision, and you are actually going in the right direction.
Have you used YouTube to listen to and watch people use their mechanical keyboards?Edited by TwoCables - 6/5/10 at 11:36am
