A good gaming keyboard can make virtually everything you do with your computer better--games or otherwise. I've reviewed more than a few gaming keyboards, and to date this list comprises my current top 5. So if you haven't already plunked down the cash for a good gaming keyboard, consider one of these.
Better quality switches make typing feel better and more responsive. Extra connections like additional USB ports or audio pass through connectors provide added convenience. Programmable macro keys can give you an edge in any game (some might call it "cheating" depending on the context...). And macro keys can even come in handy for work too, queuing tedious, oft-used tasks.
But mostly, it's about the games.
The following five keyboards represent some of my favorites that I’ve reviewed in recent months/years--and you can read my gaming keyboard buyer’s guide for some personal recommendations as well.
