I've generally had good luck with Microsoft keyboards and mice.

Yeh, I actually ordered that in the past but send it back because the spacebar felt off, had to sorta scrunch my hand. Hand in WASD + Spacebar "mode" (:P) wasn't comfortable. Great board for the price otherwise though!

I almost wish I didn't send it back because anything would be better than this badly aged Saitek: Eclipse II. Can't type for shit on the thing now.

The new Macbook Pro keyboards are utter shit for gaming, so I'll need a new keyboard over the summer when I upgrade.

Yes I know Macs are bad, noob, money-waster, etc. etc.

What type of key setup are you looking for? Cherry MX?

Not fussed what type of keys they are, as I have no experience in that area and have such a small budget. Just so long as it types well, has a backlight and what I forgot to mention, multimedia keys.

I'll make a thread on GameSpot and reddit, then link them here for your viewing pleasure. You'll get a lot of opinions that way.
