    I'm upgrading from an early Phenom II black edition, a dual core miraculously unlocked quite stably to quad. On a sad little DDR2 Mobo. This setup should do me well for gaming for quite a while.

      Heh, as nice as it is to type/game on a mechanical keyboard, I could never make the plunge and purchase one. I feel like the percussive noise of those things is enough to drive my roommate/neighbors insane... as if the loud music and drumming isn't enough.

      Other than Buckling Springs and Cherry MX Blues, they aren't particularly loud.

      You can get dampeners for mechanical switches to reduce noise.

      I love the MX518 and I got a G400 about a year ago. The G400 surface slips out of my hand so I swapped the shells and chassis of them and I use the G400 chassis/518 shell one and I keep the other as a backup. Later on I put electrical tape on the side of the G400 shell one and that helps.

      I built a computer with a 3570K and filco cherry brown am about to put up a blog post soon.
