    I need a new mechanical keyboard, the keycaps are getting worn out on my Gigabyte Force K83, and it would be cheaper to just buy a new keyboard than to get a new set of keycaps. I'd like one with Cherry MX Blue switches. What is a good one that isn't too expensive?

    Thanks, I'll check them out. I kind of liked Logitech's G613 keyboard because it's wireless, but I went to a store and tried it and I decided that I hated the switches. They aren't clicky like Cherry MX Blue switches.

    I looked, and the only keyboards they have with Cherry MX blue switches have red backlighting, and I don't really like red backlighting. I'm probably going to go with the Vortex Race 3.

    Lol now I'm thinking about building a mechanical keyboard. A few years ago I used to be really interested in keyboards, and I always wanted to build one.

    I like the Clueboard keyboard kit they used in that article, so I signed up for the newsletter for when the next batch becomes available.

    Check out Razor brand it might cost you a bit more than the regular ones, but it will last for years.

    I had one several years ago, but it stopped working after I spilled water on it :(. I also prefer Cherry MX Blue switches over Razer switches.

    I decided that building a keyboard would be too expensive, and Massdrop had the Vortex Race 3 on sale for $130, so I ordered it.
