I'm a budget gamer and I dont mind using random names like mazer. My mouse is in fact a mazer mouse.

With that being said my price range is 50 - 80 maybe 100 if its really really good.

Thank you.

If you are on that sort of budget, the Corsair quickfire rapid would be the one that I would go for. Available in reds, blues, browns and blacks. Costar made. Costar stabilizers. Decent quality. Available without the ridiculous branding. Cheap replacement cases available if you want to customize/ paint etc.

You get all the best of mechanical keyboards and I have seen them being sold for only 60 dollars. They are nice, but do realize that the main benefit to having them, in my opinion at least, is for typing.

First, you need to determine what type of switches you want.

Here's an GIF with all the different switch types to choose from:

MX browns are generally considers to be a good compromise for typing and gaming, in terms of actuation:

If you want to test out some switches, but there aren't any stores in your area that sell mechanical keyboards, wasdkeyboards sells a switch sample pack:
