As said previously I'm a noob when it comes to building everything from scratch, I don't think that building my own would be a good idea.
If I learn more about it I could do it though.

Yeah I'm going to look on Amazon, most of the time I try not to because a lot of it is just chinkshit.

Thanks for the links but those look pretty bad.

Honestly I just want the simplest keyboard that could exist, just without any fat bezels and grainy plastic.

I can't fault the Magicforce either desu. It might not be programmable but it's decent quality, has built-in functions, DIP switches for some layout adjustability. I think you get it as low as about £30 with no backlighting, to put towards some decent keycaps.

I haven't owned any other similarly priced boards to compare it to, to be fair, but it does seem to get good ratings in general. You just need to find one with Cherry / Gateron switches, as I think some of them come with Kailh?

Blue, I think.

QWERTZ preferably, unless I find a good way to remap the keys. Although I feel like I should be able to do so using my desktop environment (KDE) relatively easy. Ideally, I'd want to somehow keep the keys for '<' and '>' that's usually located on the bottom left, next to the capslock key.

I have about 200 Gateron white switches laying around here I wouldn't mind putting into it, but I'm curious- how are the Gaterons when dealing with (smd I'm going to assume) lighting? It has the lighting so I may as well take advantage of it...

The only thing remotely disadvantageous about blues for gaming is the mismatched reset point making double taps always slower. And that's a clicky switch thing, any linear or tactile switch won't have that problem so it's just about what you like more.

>> No.59140126

Typing isn't a problem on stock clears, and rapid pressing hasn't been either. The weight only becomes a problem to me when holding keys down for extended periods of time like you often do in FPSes.
