The Unsung Hero in MMO Gaming – The Keyboard

Thanks to sites like, you can get the best bang possible without having to empty your bank account. People are always bragging during those hours of raiding or other aspects of MMO gaming about their computer and the sweet ram it has, or the Duo core processors, the latest Nvidia chips they have hooked up, etc.

Yet you never hear of the one true hero of online gaming, the keyboard. The keeper of your hotkeys, the reason your arcane missiles come rocketing out in record time to gank the lowbie heading down the map, or the reason you won that arena match in the last second. While the system specs of your pc may eliminate that awful gaming lag, or your mouse maybe what has you moving at record speeds during your game, ultimately the keyboard is your bread and butter to gaming success.
