I am always running out of keys to link something on my keyboard. I have been looking at different kinds of keypads on Amazon and New Egg. Does anyone have any suggestions as to if they work well for Rift; or which one would be best? Thank you for any information you have.

Hi Maxina, I wish I had a suggestion, I'm sorry that I don't. 

Back in the day (years ago) I used a Belkin/Razer Nostromo 52 that was nice.  It felt nice on the hand and had good response and key action. I never used it to its full capabilities but it certainly provided additional options. 

I also remember trying a Razer Naga mouse, which has a slew of additional buttons on the side of the mouse but sadly I could never quite get the feel for using that many buttons with my thumb. 

Out of those two, I recommend the Belkin/Razer game pad.  But as I shared, this was many years ago so there may be new-and-improved options on the market nowadays.

I have been happy with my steel series keyboard. Works good for Rift and star citizen  in addition to allowing me to listen to spotify while I game. The extra usb ports on the keyboard allow me to run my headset and HOTAS at the same time. (Hands on throttle and stick)
