My keyboard is not letting me hit W + A + Shift.... uncool... So I'm getting rid of this 1996 keyboard and getting a new one. I will use it mostly for gaming, and would like to be able to create macros for it. Looking for some recommendations, since I haven't bought one in 20 years. Also, I prefer one that is less noise for the key clicks, I've heard some can be loud. 

 

What do you guys/gals recommend??

I bought a new Razer Black Widow Ultimate about 2 years ago and love it.

It replaced an HP that i had used for years.

I love the mechanical feel and positive key depress.

But, because it does have cherry switches, it does make some noise but after a while

I stopped noticing.

Note - your keyboard is probably a PS2 connect while most all

keyboards today use USB. So be sure you can plug it into your computer.

 

Good luck in your search

@AkakmanH Thanks. I was impatient so I just went and bought a Logitech G810 RBG. I read a dozen articles on the switches and boards, so I based it off of that.... Hopefully it works out.
