Keychron K2 V2 -$85

Those are all basically the same board. They’re all hot-swappable, so you can change out switches freely, they have decent pbt caps even though you have some, it’s always nice to have options. And they have a layout that’s supported by a lot of keycap makers.

Besides those, there’s a handful of 60-65% boards that are under 100 for a whole kit. Or a bit more if you get the barebones kits and order switches separately and use your keycaps.

The GK64 is what I have and I love it except that there are very limited options for keycaps. Or rather, it’s more expensive to find keycaps because I usually need to order a separate bundle with the non-standard bottom row junk. There’s also the GK61 and the NK65 and all the other two letter and two number named boards lol.

So yeah, keep that in mind if you intend to continuously change and upgrade bits in the future. Hot-swap is essential unless you have a lot of time and you’re versed in soldering. And layouts matter when it comes to what kind of caps you want.

Hope that helps, and best of luck.

edit: I forgot to add that these all come with basic gateron switches which imo are kinda junk. They’re not bad, I just don’t like them. So you’ll have to add another 30-?? for switches. Depends which one’s you want for how much they’ll cost.
