I need a PS/2 port because I have an original Filco Majestouch that gets NKRO over PS/2 and I do take advantage of it. There are times where 6KRO over USB won't even allow 2 simultaneous keypresses for some combinations.
To give you an idea of what I'm looking for, I was originally eyeballing the Gigabyte AORUS PRO until I realized it doesn't have a PS/2 port. I am heart-broken.
So now I'm checking out the Gigabyte Z390 GAMING SLI and also the ASRock Z390 Taichi. I will try to buy the best air cooler I can find for the CPU, whatever I end up getting - be it the 8700K or 9700K.
Am I looking at the best motherboards in this price range? Or are there better?
With the way I see it, if a motherboard costs more than maybe $250 or so, it's probably major overkill for me.
This thread doesn't mean I'm definitely going to get an Intel CPU. I'm just trying to learn as much as I can.
I'm happy to report that I'm testing my keyboard on USB, and so far, all of the key combinations I use today work! So, I don't know which key combinations didn't work when I bought this keyboard back in 2009 and tested it on USB back then, but hey, now I am free to buy any motherboard I want within my budget. I'm very happy about this!!!
