It's uhhh, complicated :^)
I use one of these, have the joystick mapped to WASD for movement, and the keys where WASD would normally be are mapped to arrow keys. Reload is on a mouse button cause I tried it once and I really liked it so I stuck with it. It helps that my mouse has 10 extra buttons P:
Looks like it's a kumara reddragon keyboard: https://www.amazon.com/Redragon-KUMARA-Backlit-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B016MAK38U
It's a cheap mechanical keyboard, but it works great for the cost. If you don't have a mechanical keyboard this is a great place to start. I have been using mine for about 6 months and it's awesome.
Edit: I was wrong. That is a hyperx keyboard. Probably the alloy fps pro.
This is my goto recommendation for anyone wanting to dip their toe into mech keyboards without breaking the bank.
Has so many extras that other manufacturers charge for.
Doubleshot PBT caps
Per key assignable RGB (must download their software for free, software isn't terrible)
NO solder hot swappable (Outemu) switches and yes you CAN mix and match blue, brown, red, etc.
Comes with 4 extra switches in the box
Throw in some Pudding Caps / still on sale for $18 and this keyboard looks DOPE AF.

Alright ladies and gents, this is a pretty good deal. Cherry MX Brown, full-size completely standard 108 key layout, and RGB. No PBT Keycaps, but that's OK at this price point. The Cooler Master software is light and easy to use, or you don't have to use it and you can use the keyboards shortcuts to do the same thing.
I personally purchased this on Massdrop for $75 shipped, which was a killer deal, but this is a good price for Amazon.
I'm using the HyperX Pudding-style PBT doubleshot keycaps on mine, and they work and look great.
This is a fantastic keyboard, whether it's your first or fifth. Very solidly built, sleek, and reliable. Not too much of a gamer aesthetic.
Make sure you clip the 5% coupon for an additional $5 off, bringing it down to $94.99 in checkout.
The keyboard is the Ducky One 2 Mini w/ brown switches found here : https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=4322
The keycaps are Hyper X's "Pudding" double shot PBT keycaps which I got on Amazon HyperX Double Shot PBT Keycaps -... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JDVG4RQ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Easy, just stop searching for Corsair
Looks like they wanted to have their own font and branding on the space bar.
May I recommend these bad boys for it

They’re from Amazon.

If you're going to be out of commission for a considerable time, you should consider getting a gaming keypad. They're roughly $80-200 (depends on the model) but they have a ton of keys on them and a joystick for movement.
Amazon link to a Razer one for the curious:
Yes, I used rubber dome for years, and a mech was my last end game upgrade.
Did it make me better no, but it did make me more consistent and get rid of the times I'd mess my counter step up and my first bullet would be inaccurate . Also I can easily work out on peeks widening a step at a time much more efficiently with tighter movement. Same with shoulder peeking to draw out awp shots.
If your wanting to try one pout you can get a brand called red dragon for 30-40 on amazon. Im using one, put some rubber o-ring under it and it feels great.
There is also a full keyed one for a little more. Idk how long it will hold up, but it's recommended a few places as a good entry level on to try out mechs.
Have you seen the razer Tartarus gaming keyboard? After switching from the standard keyboard, I have much less finger strain and my hand is able to stay in a much more neutral position while playing. Not sure if it suits your needs, but figured I’d share!
they are the HyperX pudding keycaps: https://www.amazon.com/HyperX-Pudding-Keycaps-Translucent-Mechanical/dp/B087QTWCTQ
They don't include the media buttons, so I left the numpad stock as well. I do enjoy the way everything to the right of the arrow keys looks different and almost as it has been tacked on later.
Ayyyy classic K95 bros ✊🏽
Looks good to me! I bought these HyperX keycaps for like 15 bucks last year and they fit perfectly on this keyboard
edit: except for the spacebar, windows keys and the menu key, I left the OG corsair ones on those
I use a razer Gamepad and use the bartender addon to match my on-screen action bar layout to the layout of the keys.
I find it so much easier to identify what my keys are and use the joystick for sidestep and forward/back movement. I would not be able to play wow without it and keep a spare handy.
As far as losing your target, I quickly get overwhelmed when keeping track while fighting multiple mobs. I set me main target health bar to be a fair bit larger than the other mobs in the group and always use a Personal spotlight to keep track of myself when playing melee.
Keep in mind that you don't have to be a an amazing player to enjoy the game either.
Five Bucks more on Amazon gets you a brand new one.
I feel pretty weird about used peripherals personally, same goes with console controllers.
You can get one with chinese switches on amazon for REALLY cheap
it's not the best, but the quality is still 1000000X better than a regular keyboard
I'm using a CM Storm QuickFire (cherry mx reds, purchased about 3 yrs ago) https://www.amazon.com/CM-Storm-QuickFire-TK-Mechanical/dp/B00A378L4C but it looks like Amazon isn't selling it/its out of stock or something. Also doesn't work on my Corsair K70 Mk.2 (cherry mx blues) if that helps any!
Mem-Chanical meaning not mechanical. You can get a Reddragon Kumara K552 for much much cheaper
45 on Amazon with coupon
40 on CC
Redragon on sale for $23.99 on Amazon
Red Dragon Full size with their own brown switches (cherry MX clone)
This should be pretty good for what you're looking for... it'll be hard to find that big of a hot-swap board at that price range.
Where would a good place be to search for a new mechanical keyboard using filters? For instance I know I want an 100% Keyboard with a compact layout, Aluminum backing, Cherry Blues or similar switches, and I would like RGB but its not a requirement.
I basically want This but with better key switches in it so I don't have to buy a whole extra set of switches and hope nothing goes wrong when swapping them out. The best way I've found so far is just throwing in words into Amazon or Google till I find something but it hasn't been working to well so far.
Yes, just that. It's nearly impossible to find a single set with sculpted keycaps that work with the K2's nonstandard layout.
Going for an unsculpted set means you don't have to worry about the gradient which increases the compatibility. No worrying about the R1 End key for instance.
The keys most to look out for are: 1.75u R-shift / R1 end / R2 home / R4 page up / R3 page down / 1u R-ctrl / 1u R-alt / R4 generic to replace the light key
For example this one is missing the 1u R-ctrl / 1u R-Alt / R1 End / R2 Home. Looking at the 75% keycaps sets will typically have a few keys missing as well.
Couple of questions:
Are these worth double the price of these Redragons
If I am not in a rush, should I wait until BF for something better?
Probably something cheap with blue switches, like the Redragon K552. There are clickier switches, but for more money
Yeah, that's U.S. pricing.
Canadian conversion would be $48, but it's currently listed for $59.99 on Amazon.ca.
That being said, the Seer is better and around the same price in Canada (once it comes back in stock) if you're ok with 60%.
Budget sub $50 CAD wired mechanical keyboard in Canada, you're probably looking at Redragon primarily.
edit: For example, $43.99 CAD after coupon.
1.) take the money you are going to spend on that internal HDD and the external HDD and get you a "large as you can afford" internal SSD. I'd look at either a 1TB or (2) 500GB. Maybe something like this.
2.) Dont waste your money on that keyboard, if you are building a 'red' build, go to amazon and look at the 'red dragon' keyboards.
3.) also, stay away from off brands, IMO. It ain't worth the savings if you have to RMA the part. Mainly looking at the RAM you chose, but the SSD falls in that category also. read reviews. If there are only 2 reviews for something, I personally wouldn't trust it.
I just got a Redragon K556 off Amazon and couldn't be happier. Full aluminum case (that feels awesome btw). On board memory and completely programmable through the keyboard, but comes with software which I appreciated. Completely modular plug and play switches. Fits any 3 pin cherry mx or knockoff. Tested myself with Cherrys and comes with Outemu browns. You'll have to grab "LED"/"RGB" versions of Gateron or Outemu switches off ebay though if you wan't the LED's to shine through. Cherry doesn't seem to make a shine through switch that I could find. I got these on the way. You'll notice the slit on the bottom that lets the light shine through from behind the switch.
I didn't really want a logo on my board, but at least its a cool looking dragon and not a written name. And for only $60 it left me a lot of extra cash left over for the switches I wanted and ordering some custom caps.
There are some mech cloneboards on Amazon that'll go as low as the high $20s or $30s, but in the wild (like reddit) you might find a set of keycaps for $20 shipped....
I purchased the Redragon K556 Devarajas on Amazon about a month ago and I'm really happy with it so far:
I switched to an OEM profile keycap set for my Glow. That means they aren’t all flat and the same height, but I found the home key bumps to be super useful.
Here’s how they look.
Here’s the Amazon link.
Hello, and welcome to the community!
I don't think you'd be able to get anything custom in that price range. You could try lurking on eBay to see if any older models of a Corsair show up with brown switches that are cheap enough.
There are also a bunch of lower-end mechanical keyboards listed on Amazon that fit your requirements, like this. If you just search 'rgb mechanical keyboard' and sort by price, you'd see there are a decent amount of results. You probably won't get actually Cherry MX switches, and most of the listings seem to be blue or red equivalents, but those certainly beat your membrane keyboard!
Update: found this guy with brown switches! Now hopefully that ships to Canada...
There are a ton of cheap mechs on Amazon that are actually decent for the price. Here are a couple that seem pretty nice:
I also have a couple old mechs that I could sell you, send me a PM if you want.
They’re called 9009. GMK makes them but this is a PBT set on Amazon
Is this a solid keyboard https://www.amazon.com/Redragon-K556-Mechanical-Keyboard-Aluminum/dp/B01NAI2TXC/ref=sr_1_11?crid=2C176OTLAJ1LT&dchild=1&keywords=mechanical+gaming+keyboard&qid=1629079965&refinements=p_89%3ACorsair%7CRK+ROYAL+KLUDGE%7CRedragon%2Cp_72%3A1248879011%2Cp_85%3A2470955011&rnid=2470954011&rps=1&s=electronics&sprefix=mechan%2Celectronics%2C199&sr=1-11 like should I grab one or is it low quality. I just dont know.
Lots of people dislike HK Gaming (because of their copying), but it is one of the only caps i found that are very easy to get.
can be bought on amazon.de and shipped to CH for free. it is QWERTY layout tho. I didn't care because i don't look at the keys while typing anyway. Also there is no 1U ALT and 1U CTRL key for the bottom row, i've just put WIN + FN1 + FN2 there. OCD nightmare, but i gave up searching for a CH layout
recently bought a tecware phantom as a budget base with the hopes of improving upon it over time as it is hot-swappable, first thing i want to do is buy some keycaps but as im new at this im not sure what keycaps would fit, as the switches are outemu's im under the impression cherry profile keycaps will fit, was planning on buying these https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B085249L6R/?coliid=I2KGRWI17XI6QP&colid=FQKW8EU2KNQY&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it would love to know if they will fit.
^ This is the one I use at home.
Otherwise on the go I use a cheap Logitech trackball mouse.
It's a mechanical keyboard by Redragon, here's the link to it! I really like it, definitely recommend. I've only had it since February but it seems like it'll hold up pretty nicely for a long time. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NAI2TXC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_dl_2RSPQ1TK4WN9WBZ0EP6J?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Gotta agree with this as well.
If you want to keep your function row, grab a Keychron C1 (65$ sorry don't know how to find the price in Euros).
K552 is also an option, though there are cons to this. If you plan on it being your only keyboard without ideas of upgrading in the future, then I don't recommend unless you are on a tight budget. Still many ways to modify just more limitations.
Could look into something like the Razer Tartarus
Now Idunno if they come in left handed vs right handed or if they are any good, but if that suits your fancy, just look into "Gaming KEYPADS" in search engines/online stores since thats what they are called, hope that helps.
From Amazon, here's the link
But don't buy at 12k, i bought it for around 5k which is the right price. Wait for the inflation to subside and get one or you can try some other vendors as well.
Had to order this set (https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B085249L6R?psc=1&smid=AOX42M1QYZ4TV&ref_=chk_typ_imgToDp) as it's one of the few full UK iso sets around, I'm looking for some novelty or blank keycaps that would match this set. Anything would be great. Thanks!
What country are you in?
The Redragon K552 is a popular budget board, found one version with RGB just under 50€.
Keyboards just like other things are life are not all equal. So while you can get a keyboard for 15 bucks it’s going to be 15 dollar quality. That being said reddragon k522 is a mechanical gaming keyboard with good reviews under 50 on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019O9BLVY?tag=rtings-kb-r-20&ie=UTF8
Any particular thoughts on RedDragon's Keyboards? I'm looking to get a 75% keyboard with Red Switches and I was looking at this keyboard specifically and it's perfect for what I need, but I'm still a newbie in the world of mechanical keyboards and haven't heard much about them, so I came on here to check.
Left handed gaming keyboard https://www.amazon.ca/Razer-Tartarus-Progammable-Detachable-Mecha-Membrane/dp/B07754PYFK/ref=mp_s_a_1_17?dchild=1&keywords=left+handed+gaming+keyboard&qid=1620425047&sr=8-17
Most of (if not all) these HK Gaming Keycaps have the UK 2, it took me a while to find some myself, i have a set of the "Chalk" ones from them, but i've just noticed the Purple and Yellow "Mamba" which i like the look of.
If its a membrane, just about any full size office keyboard should "work"
If its a mechanical, buy a switch tester so you can figure out which switch type you like best (the popular 3: clicky (clicky noises when typing, typically "blues"), tactile (like clicky no click and only bumpy, typically "browns"), linear (no click or bump, typically "reds"))
I used a tactile (Logitech G810, probably discontinued now) for years, was great until I discovered linear switches, now I use a Corsair K100.
If you just want a mechanical keyboard, Reddragon K556 is around USD$60, has brown/tactile switches
Or you can head to r/mechanicalkeyboards and realize the rabbit hole is very deep
They are hyperx pudding keycaps. Here’s the link HyperX Pudding Keycaps - Double Shot PBT Keycap Set with Translucent Layer, for Mechanical Keyboards, Full 104 Key Set, OEM Profile, English (US) Layout - Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087QTWCTQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_3F0KC3FM9QX6XS5DY1QF?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
They are the HK Gaming 9009 Keycaps
Thanks!! and they're just these cheap one's off Amazon... for now. (All I could afford at the time of building) I did just order the dots r2 set a couple days ago which will replace them once they arrive eventually lol. Also waiting on GMK Incognito that will probably also be in rotation! So these are more or less placeholder caps for now.
I got some 9009 keycaps from Amazon and combined the accents. I use the keyset for another board and those 2 keys are extra.
Here’s the link: HK Gaming Dye Sublimation Keycaps | Cherry Profile | Thick PBT Keysets for Mechanical Keyboard (139 Keys, 9009) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B085249L6R/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_kIidGb0QABPMX
For the price they are surprisingly very good quality. Single shot PBT I think but don’t quote me.
Any keycap recommendations? I was just thinking the hyperx pudding ones on amazon. Anything that you find aesthetically pleasing and isnt overly expensive. These are for an anne pro 2 btw.
These are what I have: HyperX Pudding Keycaps - Double Shot PBT Keycap Set with Translucent Layer, for Mechanical Keyboards, Full 104 Key Set, OEM Profile, English (US) Layout - Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087QTWCTQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_C.28FbZX1JB21?psc=1
HK gaming on Amazon has a few options:

KPrepublic also has a lot of options too, and they are on Amazon and aliexpress.
I recently bought a pbt cherry profile set from kprepublic and I’m very happy with them. Kbdfans is great, but their cheapest shipping is $20 for me in the USA, and Amazon/aliexpress had free shipping.
HK gaming sets on amazon here:
all come with 1.75u right shift. Price to quality ratio is great. I recommend.
Black ones on sale for 25.99 as well:
I know these don't fit the colors you're looking for, but these are some nice decent quality keycaps that fit many layouts.
$30 is a super tight budget, I would look for something that has either Red or Brown switches, as everything in that price range is gonna be more or less equivalent in terms of quality
Yeah, I should have been more clear, my bad. The red switch 552 is rainbow:
While the blue switch one is RGB:https://www.amazon.com/Redragon-K552-RGB-Mechanical-Keyboard-Construction/dp/B019O9BLVY/ref=pd_lpo_147_t_0/141-2938029-3710413?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B019O9BLVY&pd_rd_r=e6e52522-88b6-4c78-86ad-fce2c1e846a1&pd_rd_w=ovShK&pd_rd_wg=l0...
I bought a redragon mechanical keyboard for $40 shipped yesterday. Looks decent for the price should be in tommorow. Not sure if Amazon Europe sells it or not https://www.amazon.com/Redragon-KUMARA-Backlit-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B016MAK38U
looks like the Amazon links for me are Amazon.ca (I'm in Canada, so that makes sense), but NewEgg is still showing US prices.
For me, the Thermaltake is $108 on Amazon.ca, still cheaper than the G.Skill @ $129
There are many low priced mechanical keyboards available on amazon. You're definitely going to want a mechanical keyboard over a normal one. Some of them are backlit if that is something your are interested in. I would recommend this one https://smile.amazon.com/Redragon-KUMARA-Backlit-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B016MAK38U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1492473281&sr=8-1&keywords=red+dragon+mechanical+keyboard
There are plenty of keyboards at that price range. They may not be the best overall keyboard, but they sure as hell will be better than rubber domes.
Here is one of the first keyboards that I found on amazon for 31.67 Euros. It also has 790 reviews and a 4.5 star rating.
Heres the one I got for my first build. Backlit, mechanical, only 30 bucks on Amazon. Been using it for about a month with no complaints.
i actually just got a g810 in the mail, took it out of the box and tried typing on it, it is god awful. i hate it, they keys feel mushy and hard to type on, i've used $27 dollar keyboards that type better. as for lighting, i didn't get that far./ it's going back to amazon. lol
edit: the one i have at work, types really well for the price, no back lighting, low actuation force(relatively; around maybe about 65g)
anyone have any recomendarions on a keyboard? looking to spend about $100, ideally one with rgb (or blue backlighting, trying to match my newsy rebuilt gaming rig) i like blue style keys, light actuation and the click and bump. louder the better.
here's what i have now https://www.amazon.com/Redragon-KUMARA-Backlit-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B016MAK38U/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1518829258&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=redragon+k552&psc=1
Not RGB, but this keyboard get amazing ratings on Amazon and its 50% off as of posting this comment.
As for a mouse, I'd go for this
I agree with u/Shockwave98- on putting more into the mouse. It impacts performance the most.
You could pick up something like the Redragon K556 RGB with brown switches for about $56.38 on Amazon (with the current coupon discount) and then get a low-profile keycap set like this DSA PBT set from KBDfans for $37.90.
It's certainly not high-end, but it would be reasonably quiet, flat and within your budget.
> Keyboard: Cheapest tenkeyless keyboard with Cherry MX Red switches.
For whatever it's worth /u/grantthecreator - you could scrape $20+ off that Cherry MX Keyboard by going with one of those generic/knockoff TKL boards. They're everywhere, including Amazon w/ Prime.
If a budget was stopping you from a substantial CPU/GPU tier (I see you stretched for the 3800X), I would probably try to find that "loose change" in the build and apply it there. In this particular build, I'd DEFINITELY try to find the few bucks for the 2060 Super over the OG 2060.
And so on...there are tons of them.
I have over a year's worth of personal experience with one ("EagleTac" TKL w/ fake Blues from Amazon) on my GF's rig. She works from home often, types for school, and games on it. It's still good as new - both the switches and lights. I've used it for typing and gaming and think it's absolutely fine. I was/am quite impressed with it for under $30.
If my reference point in PC's matters - I'm on higher-end stuff (2080 + dual 34" 21:9's - AW3418DW) and have been exclusively using Cherry MX's for years in K65/K95/Pok3r's...
I use this keyboard https://www.amazon.com/Redragon-KUMARA-Backlit-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B019O9BLVY?th=1
Its the Redragon Kumura, it has RGB Lighting and Blue Mechanical Switches. Its definitely worth the $45 price tag, plus it currently has a Lightning Sale on Amazon for Prime Day so its only $35 for the next 3 hours.
HyperX Double Shot PBT Keycaps
These are pudding keycaps I recently bought. $18 which is lower than anything else on Amazon right now and from a reputable brand.
Yea man. Its nothing special just a $40 Red Dragon Mechanical Keyboard.
For the function keys and the arrow keys I custom painted them.
I'm really into custom mechanical keyboard but they are so much money
Red switch keyboards are pretty quiet for the price if you don’t mind linears! Here’s a keyboard I’d recommend that also won’t heck up your bank account :D Redragon K552 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard RGB LED Rainbow Backlit Wired Keyboard with Red Switches for Windows Gaming PC (87 Keys, Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016MAK38U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_w-wgFb4HSZCEA
HK Gaming keycaps off amazon is a good budget cherry profile set. You also might be able to find some cheap sets on aliexpress or kbdfans.
I got a barebones alt kit not too long ago and got these keycaps off amazon, they fit perfect and have the 1.75 shift for the short right shift key https://www.amazon.com/HK-Gaming-Dye-Sublimation-Keycaps/dp/B08156NG7K
HK Gaming on amazon seem to do UK ISO keys in all(?) their sets?
i also picked up this set that had UK ISO keys:
just check all the image and look out for tallboy enter key, the 2", etc.
I bought it off Ebay used, it is a Durgod Venus with a metal case it was only $50 for the keyboard (still expensive for a Keyboard depending on whom you ask).
These are the keycaps: https://www.amazon.com/HK-Gaming-Dye-Sublimation-Keycaps/dp/B08156NG7K
I also bought them off Ebay, used.
The profile shouldn't matter, it's really preference - I was aiming to try a flat profile like XDA or DSA but I couldn't find a compatible set.
So I went with Cherry profile because that's all I could get!
I've also had these (someone else also recommended) for a different keyboard:
Also quite good - I can't remember why I didn't get another set for the K2 so carefully check all the keys on this. But the Sumgsn feel a bit thicker/more solid.
Just get a Redragon with red swithces for your budget. Red switches are smooth and fast without annoying clicking sounds to piss off everyone around you or on voice chat:
The best compromise I've ever seen is these "chalk" keycaps:
You can't see it in the pictures, but the white keys let a lot of light through so you can still see RBG effects and stuff, type in the dark, etc
But the labels are black (not see-through) so everything is 100% legible in the daytime too
Not low profile, so useless for this purpose, but I wish more companies would give that a shot
Joy2key should be able to. Just some games are weird how they recognize input from it. Have you looked into any gaming keypads? The Razer Tartarus (or off branded ones, there are a few on Amazon) is a combined solution that may work better for you.
I've had this for over a year now, between that and a 12 button mouse I'm set for life. I've even got my UI shifted around to match the keys on both lol. It takes a bit of practice to get used to be no more than practicing complicated keybind combos.
Buy a macropad, e.g.
Map 4 keys to space or whatever and just tap those 4 keys with your 4 non-thumb fingers in a rolling motion over and over.
I'm looking to put together my first custom mechanical keyboard. (I currently have one that I bought prebuilt, but it started to amortize and produces a lot of chattering/not sending the input, especially on space.)
I have the following requirements:
- ISO105 layout
- 100% (Full sized)
- Controllable backlight
- I have an MX Cherry Red currently, and I absolutely like it - I'm looking for a linear switch.
- I'm looking for something like this, but the thing is, it should be hungarian (with the sleek style, supporting rgb).
Do you have any advice regarding the above? If it's vague, I can provide further details.
Since the bot in this sub is dumb af
$3 over but it’s a good keyboard for the price
Red dragon makes some nice inexpensive stuff. Software is kinda bad though
When joysticks don’t work well, or even just for general use, I find this indispensable: https://www.amazon.ca/Razer-Tartarus-Progammable-Detachable-Mecha-Membrane/dp/B07754PYFK/ref=sr_1_1?crid=ONVD34R82AES&keywords=razer+keypad&qid=1655214985&sprefix=razer+keypad%2Caps%2C155&sr=8-1
I use a Razer Tartarus as an extra set of buttons. I set it to work as joystick inputs. You can customize the RGB on each key, which makes it easy to reference/organize your buttons.
hyperx, pbt, iso as far as i know and available in black and white
I fly in VR exclusively. I bought some stretchy Velcro straps and trap them onto each leg. On my right leg I attach a trackball controller and on my left leg I attach a Razer Tartarus v2 which has a nice key layout for those added controls. Give it a look! It’s not necessarily good for an UFC but it’s great for whatever keys you need.

I also use a pointCTRL device which allows me to interact with the clickable cockpit. Yes production has been slow but issues have apparently been fixed and it’s well worth getting on the order list.
There is actually one more way you can do it without sticky keys but only very specific keyboards can do it. Press and hold two letters at the same time in chat, and if they continuously alternate letters (for example zxzxzxzxzx), it means you can jump attack using those two keys. I use z to jump and x for quintuple throw.
Its kind of weird at first but I got used to it eventually. If it helps, preset keybinds will be a thing so you can use that setup for bossing.
By the way, this is the keyboard I own that lets me do it:

Well done. I do a lot of these max FPS for minimum price builds for people. Only thing I would change is the mouse and keyboard.
I usually go with a ReDragon Mechanical for under $30 and a Logitech G502 (when it's ~$30).
waiting for the day that they make a wireless Tartarus with onboard memory for mapping. But at this point in time, I think only procreate has a shortcut numpad option. But then again, I haven't ordered it myself and haven't read otherwise online but I don't see why it specifically can't be rebound within CSP.
I picked up the hyperx pudding keycaps locally.
They feel slightly more solid than the default (ABS?) keycaps, but, I've been advised they don't wear like ABS over time, which is the main reason I got them. They also allow more of the lighting from the KB through, if that's your thing.
Try these, I think they should fit the RK84:

Idk if you have amazon prime. RedDragon would probably be your best bet for a cheaper mechanical board
