    self explainatory.

    i need a kinda cheap (around 100$) mechanical keyboard. backlit.

    i am looking at the logitech g710+ or the Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. TE keyboards.
    the g710+ has cherry mx brown keys, while the strike te has kalih keys.
    these two are the same price in norway. (keep in mind that the keyboard must be nordic)

    Mouse must be under 50$ preferably black/red

    updated thread.
    now i'm wondering, is the mx brown good for gaming? i've heard both yes and no. and does anyone have experience with kalih? iirc the razer blackwidow 2014/chroma uses kalih keys. or should i try to persuade my mom to let me buy a orion spark g910?

    My gf bought me a blackwidow chroma last year for xmas. I don't care much for the feel of the keys. Extremily loud and clicky. this year she bought me a corsair strafe rgb which has the silent cherry buttons. it's like night and day to me. I much prefer the corsair keyboard.

    i think i am going with the orion spark, even though it has romer-g keys, with currently no custom keycaps, i think it will fit for me. as far as my reading goes, it feels like cherry mx brown with a rubber ring under it. and that shoulf fit me, because i am also going to use it for writing, so it seems like the feel of cherry mx brown will suit me. also the keyboards mentioned above are super expensive here in norway.

    I personally like Razer's Green Switch; even though there maded in China. Because of its tactial feel and because it does not make a lot of sound. A plus when gaming at night. Razer Chroma RGB is about $150 now with Razer Abyssus Mouse and Mousepad. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823114051

    UPDATE: i might buy a Razer blackwidow ultimate from a friend for 50$. reason he is getting a new keyboard is because his mom is complaining about it being noisy (because it's mechanical) when she has went to bed, so he is going to buy a deathstalker chroma. should i buy this keyboard?

    Personally I would stay away from Razer products. I've had nothing but bad experiences with them due to lack of quality. I had to get 5 replacement mice within a single year simply because the left mouse buttons on all mice stopped working. Keyboards should be more durable than mice, but if my experiences are anything to go by I wouldn't hold my breathe.
