If you don’t find anything you like here, you can get a Rosewill RK-9000v2 on Amazon with Browns for $79.99. I just bought one for work about a month ago, and I’ve been very happy with it. Very minimal, basic keyboard that gets the job done, no frills.

Rosewill RK9000V2BR for $80 on Amazon, looks clean and professional and won’t draw any attention to itself.

To be honest I wouldn’t trust it. It would be worth to spend a little more and get something like this Rosewill from Amazon. You also don’t have to order from overseas.

I’ve gotten a Rosewill, just wondering, do different keyboards have different sizes? I’ve always used a full size keyboard with a numpad, but idk I keep screwing up my typing, it feels as if this keyboard is too small.

Aren’t keyboard sizes standardised? Am I imagining this? Are there larger keyboards? Or should I just chill and let muscle memory step in? I’ve never had this feeling before, I’ve used many keyboards in my life too. Sorry if this is a dumb question haha.

I like the brown switches though, they have a nice clack to them without feeling too hard.

I went for the Rosewill with Cherry MX Brown switches – not too “clickety clackety” and has a good bounce. Even though it’s described as a “Gamer” keyboard, it doesn’t have any fancy lighting, and does perfectly well as a daily workhorse (although it’s not wireless).

As a note how quiet a mech will be will all depend on how hard you hit each keystroke.

Tactile and linear switches may not have a click but they still clack when you bottom out.

Are you looking for a full-size mech, TKL or other form factor?

Also just as a note about the gigabyte mechs others are recommending they do have a high failure rate.

Also what do you want to pay?

If you want brown switches and no LEDs get this Rosewill Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switches (RK-9000V2 BR) https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00S5E4LX0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_075yBb9C617D4 very good and very well built.

I do not have a preference per se, I’m just going with one the general consensus or recommendation is. I’m not going to be particularly picky, just trusting what people who know much more than I do can tell me.

From what I have read and researched, the monitor specs that would be best suited for me (correct me if I’m wrong) would be:

1920×1080
60-144 hz refresh rate (I know there is a large difference with anything below 60, but is there a stark difference between 60 and 144 as well?)

As for the keyboard, I am looking towards a mechanical keyboard. I was already planning on nabbing this one, unless you all have different recommendations.

Let me know what you think! Thanks again.

I use the Rosewill RK-9000V2. It is a superb keyboard for under 100$, and it’s been doing me good for a while now.

I picked up a Rosewill RK-9000V2 with brown switches, and I’ve really enjoyed it so far. I haven’t done much gaming on it, but a fair bit of typing so far. I would imagine it’d be great for gaming as well.

As far as mech keyboards go, it’s about as non-flashy as you can possibly get. No superfluous lights, no flashy logos or wrist-wrests, and the logo has been specifically de-emphasized for the V2 models.

And you can get one cheap. I think I paid $70 USD on Amazon.

I bought this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00S5E4LX0?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00

it was 79.99 to match a newegg flash sale. The browns where sold out so it had a coupon knocking it to 71 (shipped a day later), I like it so far, its quiet but still has good feedback and noise. Not obnoxious but enough. Its heavy as hell for a keyboard which I like. Doesn’t move. Like you could easily kill someone with this keyboard, its that heavy.

I’m rather partial to the Rosewill RK-9000V2 for my no-nonsense work/gaming keyboards. ~$90 on amazon and prime eligible.

First a couple questions: why do you need a new keyboard and mouse compared to the ones you are currently using? Also, how big are your hands? How important is a full size keyboard or are you ok with tenkeyless? If this is a media computer, do you need a BLU RAY or DVD drive?

Next, that GFX card is massive rip off pricing. Seriously, you shouldn’t be paying more then 250 for a 1060 with current pricing. Here is an EVGA 1060 for 250 (which was on sale for 199 last week), and Here is an AMD equivalent card for 240. 314 is pretty close to what some people are paying for 1070s right now. I mean hell, you might as well go 1070 if you are gonna pay over 300 for 1060. I paid 380 for a 1070ti which is two tiers above that 1060. Keep watching r/buildapcsales and you’ll get a killer deal on a GPU.

Next up, Micro ATX MOBOs are designed for small form factor cases and suck ass for normal users or beginners to install. Avoid.

Next up, that case is well rated and good, but it doesn’t have room for an optical drive. If you need one then this case isn’t for you.

Here is what I came up with.

1st we begin with a Ryzen 2600 over the 1700. The 2600 and the 1700 are pretty comparable and have been debated up the ass but the simple fact is the 2600 is 50 bucks cheaper right now so it wins massively.

Next we add the b-450 gaming F. This is an upgraded version of the B-350 F which was considered the best of the b 350 line of MOBOs. If you want to save money you could go with the B-350F and save 15 bucks. Note that some early models of the B350 aren’t compatible with Ryzen 2600s. You could skimp here on the MOBO and get something 30-50 bucks cheaper if you want but don’t get a Micro ATX.

Next we get cheaper Ram that works very well with Ryzen builds, and has higher clock speeds. EDIT: It’s important to note that Ryzen works better with higher clock speed ram, generally around 3000 is the sweet spot.

Next we have a better SSD for cheaper and the same hard drive cause it’s fine.

Now we go with an EVGA 1070. Why EVGA? because they have a step up program, basically, if the newest version of this card comes out in 90 days, then you can step up to the 1100 series. It’s rumored that next nividia cards are a month out. This allows you to get something that works now, and then get the newest tech in like 2 months. If it doesn’t come out, then you still have a great card that is much more future proof then a 1060. Also, this card is actually 10 bucks cheaper on EVGAs website, but I don’t know how much shipping would be.

Next we get a cheaper case. This has basically been logical increments go to case for years. This case won’t show off your RGB, but this build isn’t built with RGB in mind so it doesn’t really matter. Furthermore, if you do need an optical drive for media work, this case has a slot for it.

Then we grab a damn good 1ms Asus monitor. The problem with GFX cards being 2 years old is that gaming at 1440 144 hz is tough for a 1070 on top tier games. The 1 ms monitor is better for gaming then the one you have in the list, although it’s smaller.

Finally, We get the excellent for the price red dragon kumara tenkeyless keyboard. If you need a numpad then this isn’t for you, otherwise this is an excellent keyboard and it’s mechanical. Then we add red dragon’s mammoth mouse. The reason I asked about hand size is that the Mammoth isn’t actually that huge of a mouse. Red Dragon is a Chinese company, and their products are designed for smaller Chinese hands, and is great for people with medium and small hands. It has all the same guts as much more expensive mice for much cheaper. This is literally the best mouse I have ever used in 15 years of PC gaming, but I don’t have large hands.

I left off a network adapter because I am not interested in researching those right now.

This build comes out at 1433. At decent network adapter should cost around 20-30 bucks. This leaves about 40-50 to put into a better monitor, or a decent mechanical keyboard or a mouse if you have big hands or an optical drive if you need it. If you get a cheaper MOBO you could add another 30-50 bucks for peripherals.

This keyboard normally goes for $82.90 on Amazon. It’s still a nice discount but it’s not as insane as the ebay pricing would lead you to believe.

Rosewill mechanical gaming keyboard. It’s non-LED and looks professional. Uses same Cherry MX Brown switches as my at-home gaming keyboard.

Rosewill RK9000-v2, no frills, inexpensive, no back light, MX switches. I have one at work, 3 years hammering the shit out of it. Great board. Go MX Brown or Clear for a work environment so its not too loud. Could also add rubber dampeners on the key caps if people complain.

If you feel like spending more, DAS keyboard is well respected are built extremely well, but cost double the Rosewill ones do.

I wouldnt worry about it. iKBC makes high-quality boards. “Real” cherry switches are no better than many of their competitiors, such as kailh switches and gateron switches, and generally tend to feel worse. If you do a search of this forum (which I strongly recommend, so that you learn more about mech boards in general), you’ll find that most serious enthusiasts do not like the feel of cherry switches unless they have modified them in some way – such as taking them apart to apply lube, or swapping them into the housing of one of their competitors. “Real Cherry” is a marketing gimmick, and if this is your only concern, you can save money by getting a “knock-off” board for much less.

As for stabilizers: this is a case of you get what you pay for. Off-the-shelf boards with great stabilizers include: vortex vibe (60% + numpad), and the vortex race (75%, no numpad), but these tend to retail for around $130 USD. Other more expensive brands, such as leopold, have great stabilizers too. Rattly stabs are easy to fix, in any case.

Other brands you might look into: Coolermaster makes solid entry-level full-sized boards, and they have excellent stabilizers, and does the brand Ducky. Rosewill is another option: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00S5E4LX0/ref=s9_acsd_simh_hd_bw_bk38zb_c_x_w?pf_rd_m=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-3&pf_rd_r=5K7ZA2QY682GE8P8EK93&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=0717e713-00ea-5675-b7dd-2d1ae0cbad07&pf_rd_i=…

Another option still is RedDragon: https://www.amazon.ca/Redragon-KUMARA-Backlit-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B016MAK38U/ref=lp_680461011_1_8?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1523199659&sr=1-8

Cooler Master: https://www.amazon.ca/MasterKeys-Mechanical-Keyboard-Switches-Keycaps/dp/B072C516B9/ref=lp_680461011_1_18?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1523199659&sr=1-18 .

And yes, fees tend to be higher in Canada.

If you are really, truly, concerned, I would spend the time to do some keyword searches in this forum. I dont mean this offensively, but a lot of your concerns are fairly noobish and reading up on what other people say will probably assuage them, and make you feel better about spending money on whatever board you eventually do get (I speak from experience on this). Your keyboard needs are fairly straightforward, so you should be able to get a solid board that meets them without spending more than you want to.
