Desktop PC

I am trying to find and purchase a keyboard as close as possible to my existing keyboard. It is wearing out, and I have years of muscle memory invested in it.

I wish I could post a photo, but bizarrely that seems impossible on this forum.

You can see the keyboard on the Amazon page under this description:

CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme VR Gaming PC, Intel Core i5-9400F 2.9GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 6GB, 8GB DDR4, 240GB SSD, 1TB HDD, WiFi Ready & Win 10 Home (GXiVR8060A8, Black)

Keyboard came with my computer, and the manufacturer says they can't/won't sell me a replacement, yet they are STILL SELLING this exact model!
Communicating with them is like talking to a zombie or a robot.

Computer not under warranty, and manufacturer named Cyberpower is notorious for bad tech support and shipping things that are not assembled correctly.

The key factors:

1. Color Coded / contrasting color WASD and Arrow keys;

2. The controls for volume up/down are on the SIDE of the keyboard. Volume up or down functions in a way I love: hold down either up or down volume key, and release when you are satisfied. No need to repeatedly tap. On the other side of the keyboard is a volume MUTE button.

3. The keys are fat and chunky, not flat.

Keyboards have insane psychotic prices now. I'm not paying over 100 dollars for a keyboard. If it is that expensive to ship from china, why don't they move the factory to America?

I've shopped, and all I can find are keyboards with "media control"-- tiny buttons along the very top, above the F keys, where they would be an immense pain to access. I am sixty years old. I don't have a child's eyesight or reflexes.

some put them above the Num Pad, and that's no better.

I'd also like to buy more RAM, but don't know if I'd also need a power upgrade, and don't know what type of RAM to buy.

The intake and outake air fans are wimps. Should I just get a pair of small desk fans and blow in/out with those?

The remote control to turn on/off the fan lights is broken, and I can't figure out how to manually shut them off.

Thanks for your constructive help.
