I have several keyboards in all price ranges but use my Saitek strictly for gaming and I do a lot of gaming...FPS. You've got 3 key, blue & a bright purple\lilac.
just rma'd a saitek eclipse lite or something, it was terrible plus it didnt work at all and their drivers are brutal. my brother has an eclipse 2 and loves it but i dont think its for me.

CM Store - Gaming Keyboards

I'd recommend it over the CM Quickfire Pro, simply because it just has more features and your budget is $130. The Trigger is the best offering CM has right now and it's on par with the BlackWidow and K90 / M90, but it's typically cheaper to buy. You can get it for as low as $100 if you can find it on sale, but it's about $120 regular.

If you don't mind spending a little more, I would recommend the Logitech G710+ over everything else. It's the best mechanical KB on the market right now in my opinion. It's $160 regular but you get pretty much every feature you could ever want on a KB. The only thing it's missing versus what membrane KBs have been offering is a screen integrated with the KB, but that's the only thing it's missing.

For the record, I own the Trigger and G710+, both are amazing keyboards.
thanks guys ill check out the cms.
@joelpack have you had problems with any of the leds on the logitech board? i was set to pick this one up then heard about all the troubles people are having with the leds not working after just a couple days.
