Default Tell me Why I NEED a Gaming Keyboard

Ok, I'm not a hardcore gamer. I surf a lot and play with photographs in Adobe PS. And I do fly my virtual airplanes with my Thrustmaster Flight Hotas X, and drive my virtual auto's with an Logitech F310.

But I wonder about my old keyboard. I'm using a Microsoft "Digital Media Keyboard" which has a few extra buttons on it, which frankly I seldom use. (Well the volume control is nice). I like the numberic keypad off to the right side which is nice.

But I see these cool looking gamer's keyboards. What are the benefits? Why would I like one? I see they range from cheap of $19 for a Sharkoon Tactix Compact Gaming Keyboardto $329 for a Cyborg STRIKE. (Prices at Memory Express.com). Typically they seem to be $80 - $180 for the bulk of them.

I do have a Razor Death Adder Mouse and I like it. And it looks cool.

Of course I'd want the keyboard to be backlite in Blue like the Death Adder Mouse. I have lots of LED's glowing on and under my desk, but blue seems to be the dominant colour.

So Gamers, sell me on the idea of shelling out extra cash for a gamers Keyboard.
