I'm Looking For The Cheapest, But Good Mechanical Keyboard With Macros But Also Good Without Them. My Price Range Is Around $70, But The Cheaper The Better. Thank You!

I know this a predictable choice since razer is quite popular and its 80$( a bit over what you asked). But of all the keyboards ive handled this is by far my favorite, the moment i bouht it i fell in love with it.
Its a heavy and sturdy keybord, so it feels reistance and looks like it could take a couple of blows or acidents, the mechanical keys are excellent feel fast and light with a precise "click" that minimizes missclicks and allows for a faster response. It looks good to, even tough its not backlit keys you dont really need it, the font style used are big enough to be well seen even in the dark. You have 5 macros on the left side that come quite in handy for a lot of multyplayer games and such. The software, razer synapse is preety simple to use. Overall a great keyboard.

Thanks, But That Is a Bit Too Much, Since The Version With The Micros is Priced At $100 On The Site, But Thanks For The Quick Reply.

Be wary the tournament edition does not have the NUM PAD in case you use it like i do :)  In case you missed that, and the blackwidow 2013 does bring the macro keys, i bought mine for 80euro and, not knowing were you live, if you find it locacly im sure its probably around 80$, but then again thats up to you.

The Cooler Master QuickFire Pro is a pretty good mech plank for $75

I have that keyboard. I would highly recommend it, It's solid sturdy, and has been working great for months now. A great buy for 75 bucks!

If you like clicky, tactile feedback type keyboards definitely go with MX Blue or Green switches.

What switches would be the best for gaming and typing, without being SUPER loud...

Blue's are the loudest, but the best in my opinion. It's all preference though.

Best solution

I've got both browns and reds. I like the reds for gaming, but find the browns are better for all around (typing, gaming, data entry, etc.).

All mech keys will be noisier than a membrane keyboard, although the blues are the noisiest of the bunch. If you really want to quiet the keys down, just buy some o-rings... though that will add to the overall cost of the board.

Take a look here, there are a few keyboards below $70

I would suggest the 80$ priced SteelSeries 6GV2 mech keyboard but I believe that its price should have been dropped by now.
