I'm looking for a new keyboard as I still have my 3 years old Dell keyboard. I'd like to try some mechanical keyboard but I'm having a hard time choosing one. I was thinking of buying a keyboard with cherry mx brown or blue switches. I play all sorts of games but mostly FPS. I live with other people around me and don't want to wake them up in the late night so I'd like to know if the cherry mx blue switches are very loud and will be heard downstairs. I would also like to have the keyboard backlit (preferably blue so it would fit my mouse). I live in Finland so propably not as many choices around here. The price should be around 100e/$.
Thanks in advance!

I must direct you to:

It will explain the different mechanical keys.

You will notice on the Official Website for the CMSTORM there are several models all with different mechanical switches.
