Low-profile mechanical keyboards are the next trend, it seems.

Let’s dig in.Note: This review is part of our best gaming keyboards roundup.

We’ll be running our own Game of the Year list later this month but gaming’s faux-Oscars, The Game Awards, took place last night in Los Angeles.

Fortunately, we’ve found three awesome monitor deals at Dell and Newegg today.First up: the 32-inch D3218HN 1080p monitor at Dell for $150Remove non-product link. Dell says this monitor is 50 percent off the usual price, and this is one of the company’s holiday “doorbusters” so availability is limited. The monitor doesn’t have much in the way of gaming extras, but it’s a solid monitor with a huge screen size and a 178-degree viewing angle.To…
