First Budget Build Keyboard

Hello all! Keyboard newbie here and itching to do my first budget build! I've watched a lot of YT videos and here's what I've came up with: Keycaps: IDOBAO MA Blue Cat PBT Dye-Subbed Keyboard: Flesports MK870 Barebones TKL in white Switches: Gateron KS-3 Milky Yellow Pro Linear I fell in love with the blue and purple keycaps and thought a white TKL board would make it look nice. The switches are what I've gone back and forth on. Being my first build, I was hoping to get some good linear, factory-lubed switches, but I'm open to learning to lube. I'm all about that THOCK so the thockier the better! Thoughts? I'm open to suggestions! Thank you in advance! :)

Good job! I'm sure it will sound great with the yellow switches but I personally suggest the akko cs lavender purple for a budget thock. I also suggest tape mod (putting blue tape or masking tape on the bottom of your pcb) and using keyboard foam (you can also look that stuff up on youtube). Also with left over lube you should lube the stabilizers. Anyway, wishing you the best of luck with your first build!
