I am looking for a good, somewhat long lasting mechanical keyboard. A quiet(er) one is preferred, as a share the space with my two roommates. Preferably it is within the 50-80 USD price range, although up to 100 USD is acceptable. I plan to use it for both gaming (hardcore milsim) as well as everyday work such as web browsing or typing my research papers.

for typing you want either cherry mx blue or browns.

browns do not have the audible click sound so will be quieter.

on top of that you can add rubber o ring dampers under them to quiet it even more.

bottom video for sounds.

as far as what to buy... perhaps this ducky zero... and then buy some o-ring dampers from wasdkeyboards or another source
normally they go for about $80 (at least on they do)

another option might be the durandal (again you can buy some o rings for it)
about the same price as the ducky.
