I do not care about sound, though I like the "loud" sound of the mechanichal keyboard... I dont want a very light key so where if I rest my finger on the key it will press, or even a tiny bit of pressure.... Thanks

All MX Cherry switches are MX Cherry switches, so just go with a keyboard that has good reviews and suits you for its price and appearance. I'm happy with my CM Storm Trigger, personally. CM also has a couple of keyboard versions with MX Greens now (and all kinds with MX Blacks). Only thing I'd avoid would be Razer products for their questionable RMAs (just been reading bad stuff about their RMAs).
As a person whose average WPM is above 100 and has owned the Ducky DK9008G2 Pro Limited Edition w/ Cherry MX Greens keyboard for a while, I'd recommend against the Cherry MX Green as a pure typing keyboard. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the Green switches and I think they feel absolutely amazing but I came to realize that the Greens are just stiff enough that they will reduce your WPM because of the amount of force you have to give, especially for your weaker fingers such as your pinky and ring finger. I found myself having to consciously give 100% effort when typing on Greens to achieve my standard higher WPM's. It's just so much easier to type without thinking accurately and fast on a lighter switch. If you're wanting to keep you WPM high and accurate, I honestly would just go with the Blues, Blacks, or Clears (more Blues than the others). I believe that these are heavy enough that your fingers won't accidentally press the key but light enough that it won't impede on your typing speed and accuracy. Honestly, as a pure typing keyboard, I'd go with Blues because they are stiff enough while being light enough and provide amazing audible and physical tactile feedback. If you think bottoming out becomes too loud, just purchase a set of O-rings to negate the bottoming out noise while still maintaining the amazing click. PBT keycaps will also greatly enhance your experience.
