Hi ladies and gents I need a new gaming keyboard pricing is around $200

ordering from this site: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php

I heard that the ducky keyboards where very good but they are meant to be for typing and a long lasting keyboard in general than gaming, so can someone link me a nice keyboard that's good for gaming? If I have to go for the ducky keyboards in the end then sobeit.

I love my Max X8 (with brown switches) for typing and gaming.
Browns are recommended for first timer mechanical keyboards. (so I have read and been told)
They are an in between switch.

Max Keyboard Nighthawk X8

Any reason that you are ordering off of the site you posted?

I use a logitech G510 and love it. I've never had any problems typing or gaming with this key board. It is extremely responsive and plenty of macro keys.

I own the Ducky DK9087 MX Browns and I have to say I was extremely impressed. The keyboard is solid enough to smash against a wall without a scratch.

I got the browns because I was looking for a hybrid between typing and gaming but now that I'm using it more, I find that I type a lot more than I game, so getting the MX Blues might have been a better choice.

Are you wanting full size or tenkeyless?
I do not like Ducky keyboards because they use Cherry stabilizers, I like Costar stabilizers better, but that is a personal preference thing.

tbh, after using the ducky shine 2 brown switch I find it ok only for gaming,
it isn't really nice to game for a long period of time (3hours and above?) for me, even with the additional of a wrist rest.

Just a suggestion since different people have different preference over switches / types of keyboard.
