Where to buy Barebone TKL board cherry mx

One of my mechanical keyboards has died and I want to reuse the keys. I'm honestly just looking for the cheapest board to slap these keys on. What do you guys recomend for under under $70 cad(Leds isnt required but would be nice if I can reuse the ones on my old board)?

GMMK, but what keycaps are these that makes you want to reuse them so bad?

Oh, you mean switches.

 

MX Blue might be fine until you try basically anything else...I still suggest a GMMK or a GK61 (or similar), but also to throw in some Kailh BOX Whites.

I have the gmmk and it's a great board.  It accept plate mounted switches and has led included in the pcb so no need to reuse the led from your old board. All in all I like it a lot. 

 

I also have kailh box white and those are awesome ... they make me like clicky switches ... I can't stand the blue switches but those box white are just so nice ... they sound really good with a set of SA profile keycaps, I tried them with my DSA set and it was not that good sounding.
