Hi people.
Today i got my OZC alchemy series keyboard. It's a pretty good so far except when I press "ctrl" to duck , "w" to go forward, and "space" to jump simultaneously, the space key doesn't read. Even my laptop's keyboard does that, but as it appears this keyboard has some stupid matrix type which doesn't allow some specific keys to be pressed at the same time.

My question is, is it a common problem with keyboards?

Can anyone suggest me a solid wired keyboard which doesn't have problems with multiple buttons pressed at a time, and which is not so expensive?
40$ is the desired price range, but i'd pay 60$ if it's worth it.

You are looking for a keyboard with anti-ghosting, which allows you to press mutiple keys at once. I would recommend the Razer Lycosa, but it is closer to $70.

Does the keyboard have an PS/2 input?
