Default Suggest a keyboard

So i find my self looking for a new keyboard. The one i have now is old and needs replacement. Ideally i would like to stay as close to the current key layout as possible. I currently have a Saitek Eclipse. I have been looking at some of logitechs offerings. I have no desire for a built in lcd so don't bother suggesting it. I do some moderate gaming as well as video/photo editing. My budget is around $80. Suggest away.

I went from the Saitek Eclipse II to the Logitech g110. Not really any better or anything since it's got the same media keys and same backlight colours. Only reason I got it is for the same reason, because it was old. It actually still works perfectly and only a couple of the keys seems slightly worn out. Just needs a good cleaning and it would seem brand new. Anyways though, took me a little while to get used to the new keyboard since Id been using the eclipse for like 5 years or more but it's good. Only advantage the g110 is the programmable G keys and honestly I havent even used them yet. That and it also has a USB 2.0 port and headphone and mic inputs, again, none of which I've used yet. Be sure to get it on sale cause at it's regular price it is a rip off. I got it on sale for $60 I believe or just under and that was the cheapest I've seen it. That was during an NCIX sale.
