So I'm looking at replacing my IBM Model M. Simply because I keep my wife up late at night

I was looking at a Rosewill RK-9000BR (because its what fits my budget). I was looking at my keycap options and it was like jumping into the deep end of a pool.

I like the look of the Granites, but those are... pricey on the used market and nonexistent on the new market.

I was wondering if anyone had any advice they could lend.

You aren't really making any sense. You want to buy a rosewill cause it's cheap and then you want to buy new set of keycaps for it as well? The keycaps themselves are going to cost another $25 min, most probably more if you want quality ones made out of PBT and especially if they're dyesubbed or double shot.

I've looked a little at massdrop.

Theres two reasons why I'm looking at new caps.

1. The keyboard is used and the keys are worn.

2. The caps are transferable. When I upgrade keyboards, I can take the caps with me, put the stock ones back on, and sell the original keyboard.

So I've solved my problem.

I got a Corsair K95 RGB on refurb for a good deal

I'll keep my eyes out for keycaps if I'm not happy with the corsair ones.

Thanks for your advice!

You just got a (new) problem, if you gonna buy a new keycaps set, as the k95 don't have a standard bottom row (Ctrl, Win, Alt, FN/Menu and the Spacebar).

Most of the keycaps sets bottom row Keycaps + Spaccebar will not fit on your k95.

If you look in the link here: http://www.maxkeyboard.com/mechanical-keycap-layout-and-size-chart.html you will see that the standard bottom row keycap size for Ctrl, Win, Alt, FN/Menu is : 1x1.25 and for the Spacebar it is: 1x6.25.

Like Ducky, Das, Deck, WASD and some more k-boards in link.

K95 has this bottom row keycaps sizes; Ctrl = 1x1.5, Win = 1x1, Alt = 1x1.25 and Spacebar = 1x6.5.

This set will fit on your k95: http://www.maxkeyboard.com/max-universal-cherry-mx-translucent-clear-black-full-keycap-set-front-side-print.html
