I got my wife a cheap Logitech K120 a few months ago to replace an old white clunker. It's one of the quietest keyboards I've ever heard.

I wouldn't see why it would be "bad" for gaming. She played Starcraft with it just fine. But she's not Korean, so she didn't use the keyboard shortcuts too often.

i actually had that one, but smashed it in half in a fit of BFBC2 rage Yes i know, i need meds VERY quiet keyboard, sounds exactly like laptop keyboard sound, maybe SLIGHTLY louder. if you buy it and notice its too loud, returning it shouldnt be a problem, no? other than the time wasted....i guess the noise also depends how hard you press the keys i think.

One more vote for the Logitech. I guess quiet depends on your definition, but it certainly is not loud. After using my laptop I really liked the short strokes and the illumination is a plus.

No, it's not quiet. Your ears are broken. They keys are loud when they bounce back up after being pressed.
