There are cheapy thermaltake ones on newegg. That's about it for $80. I'd just save your money till you can get something much better.

Does it count if you can turn the backlights off?

Also, any preference on what TYPE of mechanical switch?

I got a refurbished mechanical keyboard (black switches) at Microcenter for $60. Thing is built like a tank and I've never had a single problem with it. If you have a Microcenter near you, it might be worth it to look there.

I have more money, I just didn't really wanted to not spend a ton on a keyboard. Then again, with me, they're long term investments. I've been using a ****ty Dell one that I got with the first computer I bought myself in like 2003 even though I'm using a cool one I built myself now. If dropping $150 on dasKeyboard is the only good option, mayhaps I shall, I was just thinking there might be a good one a good bit cheaper.

Does it count if you can turn the backlights off?

Yes. I mean, it can have backlights, they can be always on, I just prefer something more subtle.

Also, any preference on what TYPE of mechanical switch?

Brown sounds okay, but I've never used a mechanical keyboard before so I don't know.

No Microcenter.

A CM Storm Quickfire XT should be around that much, or at least it was when I was looking at/for mine.
