I do both of those Sometimes you just have to look down. And I have it on 5 (stated before) That's the lowest I'm comfortable going without colors being washed out
I bought a Quickfire Rapid on the spur of the moment with spare Paypal cash. I don't think I made too bad a choice, so let's see what it's like.

Also I don't miss the numpad at all.
Bought a Logitech G510.. more useable than whatever I had before (That was a cheap thing, this cost me like 80 but its got media controls and a load of macro keys and a full size layout..) Still, wish I could be on a mech... When I get my own house... one day..

I've got a Black Widow. Mum err, doesn't allow me to use it.
I've just aquired a QPad MK-80. Best keyboard I've ever had. [editline]2nd May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Gravity Ponds;35791899]I've got a Black Widow. Mum err, doesn't allow me to use it.[/QUOTE] Lmao. I love the sound of the keys :D

How does the Das compared to the model M for loudness? I'm probably going to buy one for my next build, but I can't decide on the silent/loud or letters/blank keys. I do rather enjoy having a loud keyboard, but it'd be nice if it didn't keep others awake at night.

Too bad my father threw away a perfectly working Model M a few years ago.
Whats a good mechanical keyboard for 50-80$?
I picked up a Black Widow for 89.. Next cheapest I saw was Steel series 6gv2 for like 92 I'm not an expert but I think you're budgets a little low. That is, for buying retail

[QUOTE=Waterrmelonn;35845125]Whats a good mechanical keyboard for 50-80$?[/QUOTE] Probably a mint/very good condition Model M or AT101. Or a Cherry G80-3000 if you want a new board rather than an old one.

I've always used Logitech keyboards, G15/G19/510 (have 4 of those). Those macrokeys and LCD means lots for me because I use every key very efficiently. Anyway, I came up with a great plan which is. I'm gonna buy a Logitech G13 which have the screen and macrokeys and then a Corsair K90 as a mechanical. It looks like a G510 but without a screen. Sooo the question is, can anyone vouch for K90 or should I look at another keyboard?

K60 doesn't have any macro keys and features a dull wrist rest only for your left hand. If you live in Europe I reccomend going with a QPad MK-50, their cheapest model, however it has no macro keys nor back lighting.
Money is not a problem for me so I guess K90 it is. Yea I know, I use them for Windows/software/games so its a must for me. Even the LCD which may seem like a gimmick to most is valuable for me. Mostly because of "Aida64" that shows temps and everything about your comp WHILE you're gaming/other stuff.

If it doesn't overheat after about 15 minutes of Prime95 then it wont in games.
[QUOTE=Chubbs;35860852]Why would you need temps if you're gaming? If it doesn't overheat after about 15 minutes of Prime95 then it wont in games.[/QUOTE] There are more to it than just temps, if I can in a easy way check everything on a LCD I will. Tabbing out is just tedious.
[QUOTE=Chubbs;35860852]Why would you need temps if you're gaming? If it doesn't overheat after about 15 minutes of Prime95 then it wont in games.[/QUOTE] I enjoy using the timer/clock on my G510 as well as seeing my GPU utilization, GPU temps, and memory usage on my LCD. Something that I would like to have on a mechanical.
I tweeted @Logitech and they replied that they are looking into a G series Mech board and that I should post in a particular topic. So i did. Though it's not too active. A post every few days. I think I'd only be satisfied from a feature point of view if they made a MX black G510 or G19.

Am I the only one that spent a lot of money on my computer so I wouldn't need to worry about checking temps/fps. I got over the overclocking/statistic nut phase aaages ago.
I do moderate overclocks, not enough for me to want to check temps 24/7 but enough to get a nice result with stable temps.
[QUOTE=reevezy67;35867040]Am I the only one that spent a lot of money on my computer so I wouldn't need to worry about checking temps/fps. I got over the overclocking/statistic nut phase aaages ago.[/QUOTE] You're not. But I do keep tabs on all that stuff, not because I'm worried my system can't do something, but when I'm in a game as I'm testing out stuff for recordings, I like to know how much GPU headroom I have before a framedrop during recordings. if I'm recording at 60fps for something and see I'm at 70-75% usage between GPU's, I'll know that I'm safe, but if I'm hitting 90% I know that any moment I could drop and lose sync with my work. It's not so much that I am worried, but it gives me more convenient access to system information.
