Try the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard.

That's the keyboard I have and I like. It is very nice and fairly quiet with good performance, plus the backlit keys are done very well.

All right everyone, I'm typing this on my new Sidewinder X4. I got it for $50 off of Amazon. I immediately notice a few things that will take some getting used to. 1. The keys are not "layered" They don't progressively get taller with each horizontal row. 2. There is no extra gap between the A and the CAPS LOCk button. Flaw number 1 is easily fixed by tilting the keyboard. I find the palm rest very comfortable, and I think they keys have a nice feeling when I'm using them. It is slightly louder then my old keyboard, but that one was meant to be silent. I think this is the perfect gaming board for those on a budget! I turn the backlight off during the day because it does look pink when it's bright out, but at night, it looks awesome terminator red!

Nice! A gaming keyboard always feels better to have, definitely makes a difference.
Sorry for threadjacking but I was wondering actually if anyone has ever tried out the Logitech G19? Its quite expensive but definitely looks really cool. Any thoughts?
