Son wants a gaming keyboard, a razor one like this
http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-keyboards-keypads/razer-blackwidow-tournament-edition

It only states up to 10.9 that it works, can't see much on Google about it.

He has a razor mouse, older one that works with the razor synape 2 software fine on the iMac, so suspect this will to but anyone help with info please.

Looking at either the black widow tournament essential or razor desthstalker (great names!!)

Thanks

Generally speaking, just about all USB keyboards will work with Macs. Where you will have problems is, if the keyboards require special drivers to control things like lights and/or macro keys.

That being said, the keyboard you linked to should work fine as a standard keyboard. I don't now if they make a Mac version of their Razor Synapse software, though based on the system requirements, it seems that they do. However, if you use the keyboard with Windows in Bootcamp, there should be no issues at all.
