Hmm.. For gaming I recommend a mechanical keyboard. There’s a couple different switch types that you’ll see, Cherry MX red, brown, blue, etc.. I like browns because they offer a little tactile feedback as you type with a little click sound. Reds I think are suppose to be silent and maybe have quicker actuations making them maybe a little faster (probably not noticeable for most of us).

There’s a ton of good ones so it’s hard to point you in the right direction. I like corsairs K70 stuff but they can be pricey. There’s a couple good cheaper brands on Amazon that have really good reviews as well. I’m actually in the market myself for a new one and am looking at Cooler Masters keyboards this time around. Logitech also has some great ones. Hyper X (made by Kingston I think) makes a good one.

As far as mice go, it’s personal preference. The Logitech G502 Hero is regarded as one of the best. Corsair makes good ones, Razer makes good ones but I read they feel cheap. I went with the Roccat Tyon because it’s button layout is far superior to anything I’ve ever tried. Since you’re coming from a controller maybe you should just get the Tyon as well, it’s like a controller with all the buttons lol and it’s pretty freaking good too! I actually want to get another Tyon just in case mine ever breaks because who knows if I’ll be able to get something similar in the future.. I tried like 4 mice before settling on the Tyon, too.. I tried Corsairs Dark Core RGB SE and the Tyon just blows it out of the water and it’s a very well made mouse! I did lots of research back when I bought it and it’s also a great mouse if you have big hands like I do 😁

I just got an Elite w/ Browns for $79.99 on amazon

Would you recommend I keep the HyperX (hasn’t arrived yet) or go with the OP keyboard though it’s $30 more.

Is this being replaced? Clearance sale? Or just a sale sale? Sorry new to mechs and have been looking for a week or so now.

I bought this keyboard the other day because amazon had it for 79.99 brand new!!

Is the OP keyboard worth the extra $30? Especially if it’s my first mechanical?

Thanks.
