    Keyboard for gaming

    Alright, so I should be getting my new build in several months, and unlike ALL the computers I had this one will be a desktop. So, I need a keyboard.. and I can't quiet find the one that fits my needs. So, since I type with 3 fingers [yep, 2 on the left hand, and 1 on the right ('_') ] I kinda like flatter keyboards like laptops have - they don't hurt my fingers when I "slide" them across the keyboard. However, this keyboard will also be used for heavy gaming [mostly fast-paced stuff like UT and Sam], and since I'm also totally weird with my controls - I have a few requirements:
    1.] My jump key is the right shift, so I need that as close as possible to the arrow keys - but not above them, and the key should be pretty long - not square.
    2.] The right CTRL key must not be RIGHT under the shift key, instead it should be located a little to the left - its right side should start where the shift key's left side ends.
    3.] I would like the arrow keys to be big, square, but not too far apart spaced - though I can live with that.
    4.] It would be GOOD if the kbrd had macros, but if not - I won't be too disappointed.
    Ah yes, one more thing - the keys should not just be flat-ish, but they also shouldn't suppress much - like on laptops. A good example would be a MacBook - their keyboards are very good for typing, however I don't want something exactly like that since their arrow keys are too crammed.
    Soo... Any suggestions guys? I don't care for price as long as its under $100 [I'm pretty sure anything more expensive than that would be made of gold or something]
    Thanks in advance

    Do you think a such keyboard exist?

    Razer Lycosa is not bad, but I don't remember if there is macros on. For the rest, impossible :/

    (and wtf you jump with left shift??? you should rather do like me it's more simple, control everything with only 1 finger*: A.left Z.advance E.right D.back R.crough T.reload Mouse3.jump space.switch to shootgun)

    *AZERTY keyboard


    Corsair ? Asus ? Razer ? Beyerdynamic

    Same question :~]
    I was actually looking at the Razer Lycosa.. and I like everything about it, except I have one question: if anyone owns it, do the letters on the keys look kinda dim and hard to see if you don't use backlighting? They do on the pictures, and I'm pretty worried about that since I still type with 3 fingers and I look at the keyboard a lot. I don't plan on using backlighting much either. Ah and Metaliman, you got that wrong - I jump with RIGHT shift, since its close to Arrow Keyz. And I hate how all keyboards have right control key too close to teh arrows.
    Ohhh i just looked at the Razer Tarantula and its a bit different! CTRL is placed correctly and it seems like a good keyboard for typing too. One thing though: is it a "mechanical" kbd? why is it bad if its not? Thanks

    you can write faster on mechanical keyboards

    it lasts nearly forever

    the keys don't wear off, don't change in feel

    it's faster in general and more exact actuation point when you click. you don't have to click the key down, only 50 %

    "real" mechanical keyboards cost at least 50€ while the normal rubberdome keyboard like g15 costs maybe 5€ or less in production. so if you buy a mechanical it's worth the money but if you buy normal ones that cost above 5€ you pay for the name and bling-bling only

    that's why pro gamers often use mechanical keyboards

    Dammit..
    All the mechanical keyboards i find are bad, they aren't flat and the CTRL key is in the wrong place. The razer tarantula isn't mechanical, is it? I'm not sure i really need that though, since as the thread you linked says that its only the fact that you don't have to completely suppress a key that makes mechanical keyboards great, but I'm fine with how my laptop keyboard types and its probably one of those "scissor switches". So yeah... dilemma here.

    most mechanical keyboards have the default layout - the ctrl key is where it should be. if you want a flat keyboard you must go for scissors - laptop like flat keys. scissors are not as good as mechanical switches but better than the cheap rubberdome keys like in g11 etc.
    you can play good with every keyboard - even with a 4€ one. everything I say is that it's waste of money to pay 90€ for a NON-mechanical keyboard. so if you find a cheap scissors keyboard - why not?

    the razer tarantula has scissors switches from what I've read.

    Cherry eVolution STREAM and Microsoft Sidewinder X4 are (flat) scissors e.g.
