Looking for a cheap mechanical keyboard (reliable) with numpad. Currently sitting with a jank dell keyboard from eons ago. Wanting one that is less than $100 but willing to go higher if good quality.

Also any cheap decent headsets with mics? I have one that is starting to be on its last legs. The ear cups are starting to fray badly (I get black specks from the plastic stuck to me when I take them off).

This is considered a quality mechanical keyboard (with numbpad): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823129022&cm_re=cooler_master_xt_brown-_-23-129-022-_-Product

This one has Cherry MX brown switches (Tactile switches): gives a small bump instead of a loud click like Cherry MX blue. You can also get the same keyboard with blue switches if that's what you prefer. Read up on the different kind of switches before purchasing a mechanical keyboard:http://www.overclock.net/t/491752/official-mechanical-keyboard-guide

Thanks for your input, i'll look into those.
I have tried a friend's Razer Blackwidow Chroma and I liked it. I'm assuming theirs are closer the blues since the Blackwidow was kinda noisy.
