    I have found a bunch of powerful, high search volume, low competition keywords (I have been doing research for a couple weeks now) but many of them have all the relevant TLDs taken (.com, .net, .org)...

    I was wondering how harder (if harder) would it make to me to rank with the exact keyword + online or store etc, ex:

    Let's suppose my keyword is "blackhat", but blackhat.com,.org,.net are all taken (even if no site exists on them), Would it hurt much If I went to buy blackhatonline.com or blackhatsource.com or blackhatplace.com? You know what I mean?

    Does it hurt SEO? Domain value? Ranking power?

    Thanks!

    That's what I usually do whenever the exact domain is not available.

    At least you'll have your keyword in it

    I have ranked with things like black-hat.com and blackhats.com and have seen successful sites like blackhats4all.com

    What are you using it for?

    If its an Adsense blog/autoblog, just go with a cheap .info
    If its a landing page for CPA offer, try going by country code since a lot are country specific.
    So if, for example, you are promoting penis enlargement which is US-only, register: www.MakeYourWang10FootLong.us.
    Or any country you are targetting, like:
    MakeYourWang10FootLong.de
    MakeYourWang10FootLong.nl
    MakeYourWang10FootLong.co.uk
    MakeYourWang10FootLong.eu
    etc etc

    This does also have the added benefit of "generally" performing a little better in localized search results.

    However, if you need it to be international, then (like with a blog using .info) you can also mix it up as previously suggested... for example: www.Blackhat-Madness.com etc

    Also this is good because some people WILL remember it and type it in the browser (depending on your domain). This is why I always put capital letters when writing domains to empathize them.

    Personally if you site was good and you made it obvious of the domain, www.BlackhatX.com, I would remember that. Especially if you design a logo around the 'X' too

    Also think about 'Plurals' as google accepts plurals as variations to key words... for example Party & Parties, although different they are recognized as the same. google parties and you will see that the first result is actually 'Party'

    you can learn how google relates these and other keywords by searching the single words and seeing what it highlights!
