Default New keyboard

My keyboard I am currently using is one of these:



It's about eight years old and has seen better days as someone has changed the num-pad keys around I'm looking to spend £20-£30 on a new keyboard, it will be used for gaming i.e BF2, TF2, COD4 etc...any suggestions?

I'm quite fond of my Saitek Eclipse.

Now im using a crappy keyboard while i get my merc stealth in a few weeks with my next component order Xd) although the merc stealth is a bit out side ur range,,,,id say go with a saitek eclipse...its the best u can buy for the cost.

The Saitek is a nice KB, my father has one, but I personally can't game on anything but a slim KB, in a fast game, my fingers start tripping over the tall keys. Do they make a slim KB for gaming?
