Hey, recently my gaming headset broke so I need a new setup for using skype and stuff. I have really nice headphones, but no microphone. I have a Cherry MX keyboard, so it's extremely loud and I don't want people to complain about it. So here is a set up I am considering.

AT2020 USB-

A stand to keep it above my keyboard-

Shockmount to stop it from picking up my pc vibrations-

Windscreen to stop pc fan noise-

Just read some reviews for the mic quality and then choose whichever one sounds good to you. Then go into Skype and make it push to talk, now your problem of people being annoyed by your mechanical keyboard is gone problem solved.
