cheap is relative to what you are comparing to. to some, a 150$ keyboard is cheap compared to specialty 300$ keyboards. giving a price range aleviates that problem.

Gaming is a marketing term. there isnt a requirement to make something "gamer", keyboards and Mice are almost entirely preference on several factors like type of switches(be it rubber dome, alps, any of the cherry colors, buckling springs etc) and how the keyboards ergonomics are. some people dont need macro keys as well.

For generic examples, backlit rubber dome keyboards would be like Microsoft's Sidewinder X4. Cheaper LED based mechanical keyboards would be like Coolermaster's Quickfire series

clicking noises on mechanical keyboards can easily be alleviated by using thick O rings to prevent bottoming out the key. as long as you are using a linear switch(red/black) then the amount of noise a mech keyboard makes is significantly lower.


as for other examples of cheaper backlit keyboards, the Corsair raptor K30 might fit your bill if the Sidewinder X4 isn't your style. I believe Thermaltake has a few cheaper backlit models as well

the quicklfire TK is one of the few boards where many pc users make the switch from Rubber dome to mechanical due to its lower cost(compared to other mechanical keyboards) and moderately well build quality(as I recall, coolermaster I think uses the same OEM that Filco Uses when making keyboards)

Ahh okay thanks a lot, Another quick question is the cooler master Xornet a good mouse? It's relevantly cheap at £10 and has a few programmable buttons.

mice is a hard one to evaluate, as each individual user may want different DPI/CPI levels based on their preference on ratio of hand movement/cursor movement. the xornet is better for those who like lower settings on their mouse. though when purchasing a mouse, Put a heavy emphasis on how you like to hold your mouse(palm grip(palm rests on back of mouse), claw(fingers and thumb are oriented in claw like fashion) or fingertip(palm not on mouse))
