    New Keyboard

    I have been looking for a new keyboard for about a month now and I can not seem to find one that works really well for fps games. Do you guys have any suggestions as what works for you?

    As well I was looking at getting the corsair k70 but they are all sold out every where I look in Ontario.

    Re: New Keyboard

    I've been using a $25 logitech keyboard for years. I'm afraid to get anything better because high-tech keyboards are easy to ruin. This one I've spilled beer on and just hosed it off, still works like new.

    If I were in the market for one I'd be looking at the Saitek Eclipse. It's a good price, good reviews, adjustable LED colors, etc.

    I did end up finding a Corsair K70 I am very happy with it so far!! The blue back lighting is amazing and the key by key back lighting is great as well!!
