Ok, I am building a new pc later and since I am moving from a laptop, I don't have any usable keyboards. I already have a great mouse, so i don't want any mouse/keyboard combos. I can spend up to $30 aud (I know, not much) and I want a wired (NO WIRELESS) keyboard. It must be quiet, normal size and both backlight (red is preferable.) and macros would be good, but not necessary.
Thanks, Coolo.

The Microsoft Sidewinder X4 Keyboard is a great keyboard that's cheap.

It has red back lighting.
It has macro keys.
It's not mechanical so it's quiet.
It's wired.
It's normal size.

It is £40 which equates to around 69aud. I know it's a bit more than you want to spend but it ticks all the boxes. I still think this is a relatively cheap keyboard.

Looks good, but too expensive.
