Quality peripherals are just as important as having a high refresh rate gaming monitor, and one of the best graphics cards to boost your fps as high as your score. This is why having a reliable gaming keyboard is a must and can make all the difference between a successful game changing play or a throwaway match. Thankfully, you can often find the best gaming keyboards at deeply discounted prices, just like Whirlwind FX’s Atom 60% gaming keyboard is currently almost half price for all of October.
This compact RGB instrument is available from Amazon US at a generous 40% off its regular asking price, bringing its cost down from $79.99 to $49.99, which should make it a much easier purchase for anyone with a tight budget.
If you’re particular about your switches, you’ll be pleased to know that the Whirlwind FX Atom is available with Gateron mechanical switches in blue clicky, brown tactile, and red linear options which should suit more than suit your preferences. They might not be as much of a household name as Cherry MX, but they’re just as reliable.
For your hard earned cash, the gaming keyboard offers premium build quality with its double shot ABS matte keycaps and premium lubricated stabilisers, which should help mitigate wear and tear. If you’re nerdy for hard and fast statistics, it also boasts a 3,000Hz polling rate.
In addition to its compact size, the Atom packs a mighty colourful punch. It features game-specific RGB integrations, via SignalRGB software, that directly correlate with on-screen action. This lends fireballs in Minecraft or headshots in Valorant some extra panache, with more titles being added every week.
