Corsair mechanical gaming keyboards are the real deal. If you can get one of the original "Vengeance" K70 (the first iteration of these keyboards) at a reasonable price go ahead and do so. The keyboard feels sturdy, the keys are "raised" and sits on top of the frame rather than recessed in, which makes cleaning it a whole lot easier. The multimedia keys, particularly the volume wheel, is very convenient to use. There's also a USB pass through on the keyboard itself.
I have the MX Blue switches on mine which gives a tactile bump feedback and a rather loud "click" sound, which is a personal preference. For mostly gaming, I'd suggest go for quieter keys such as the MX Red's or the new Rapidfire ones.
I'm knocking it down one star mainly due to the price of the K70's these days (nearly 200 CAD) and with this being non-RGB (got this model a couple years back). I would've gone for the cheaper Corsair Strafe line if I were to buy another mechanical gaming keyboard today.
