I would spend $1 more for a real cherry mx switch if I was you, and red switches are more gaming than blue switches

What sized hands, what grip style do you use? What types of games do you play?

 

What mechanical keyswitches do you prefer? Do you need a numpad?

 

What kinds of music do you listen to? How important is a microphone? Are you okay with open-backed headphones?

What games you play most often would really help. When you say "all of them" I doubt you mean all of them. At its most extreme, do you play twitch-reflex fps games like Quake? RTS's? Slow productivity-based games like EVE? Rhythm games like Osu? RPG's like the Witcher? Each of these games will preferably be played with a different mouse and keyboard.

 

For mechanical keyswitches:

Browns, Reds, and Blues are the most common.

 

Reds have a light feeling (easier to press down than a normal keyboard) and go down smoothly. These are generally considered the best for gaming since you can press keys more quickly.

 

Browns go down as easy as reds but have a slight tactile bump so you can feel exactly when the keypress was registered. 

 

Blues have a large tactile bump and are slightly harder to press down, which makes them feel satisfying when typing. They're also clicky (they click when they register).

What kinds of music do you listen to most often? Are you into death metal, opera, nightcore, mongolian throat-singing, and jazz? Given how diverse music can be, it's often surprising how limited "everything" can turn out to be. For instance, I generally like soft vocals, strings, and strong bass. I may listen to many different genres of music, but these tend to be qualities present in the songs I like, which allows me to narrow down what sort of sound my ideal headphones should have.
