I've yet to see anyone get chastised for a poor quality photo. No need to apologize smily_headphones1.gif

I guess if you use a lot of force normally, a capacitive based keyboard might be better for you, but I generally type pretty light and quick, so my MX blue keyboard works great for gaming.
With most games, you are holding keys down rather than tapping them, which is a lot easier to do with a scissor switch. Membrane keyboards are just all around bad experiences.

Unless you are holding the key right at the operating point, which is where it is with a scissor switch, it takes longer to release a mechanical key - that's a fact. And with MX Blue in particular, the reset point is placed further back from the operating point, so it's possible to mostly release the key, but because of that tactile bump on the upwards stroke as well as the downwards stroke, it's very easy for a key to get "stuck" on when using a light touch.

MX Blues are probably the worst keyboard for gaming, even worse than membrane.

That's not to say that mechanical keyboards aren't a lot nicer to type on, but scissor keyboards have the lowest amount of travel, which is important in gaming.

Are you gaming for fun, or to be competitive? If you're being competitive, you need one of the new 1ms Lightboost panels or a CRT.

Those aren't mine, but I do have Rokit 5's that I have hooked up straight to my computer. I have a Y splitter that combines both XLR cables from the left and right speaker into a 3.5mm that I plug into my computer.

Is that safe to bypass an amp like that?

I have no idea but that's the setup that KRK sold me.

Those are basically the only monitors that you can overclock to 100Hz + nowadays for Korean IPS monitors. biggrin.gif
