Default Need a new keyboard

I've been using a Saitek keyboard for year, but its finally time to replace it. Alot of the button gave the letters faded off of them and theres def a few food stains in there. What do you guys recommend for a gaming keyboard? The Eclipse that I have now is ok...but im not 100%happy with it so im just seeing what else is out there. thanks

Here's mine: Newegg.com - Microsoft FA3-00010S Black 104 Normal Keys 9 Function Keys USB Ergonomics Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000 - OEM



Works good, and it's comfortable. Decent for gaming, too.

I've got the V1 G15 as well and I love that keyboard. I would definitely recommend it.

But that design is just brilliant. Looks much better than the G15 IMO. And a really good price to boot.
