Default Suggestions for a Keyboard?

Planning on buying a gaming keyboard to replace the crappy Dell one I have now. Does anyone have any suggestions? I was looking for one with plenty of programmable keys, sensitivity, and one that would be long lasting.
I was thinking maybe the Razer Arctosa

EDIT: I forgot about the Logitech g15 and g11, and the Saiteks. Considering those too. Very possibly the g11...

Razer Lycosa is what I have. It's pretty good.

So I guess there's a newer version of the g15 out? And some random newegg reviewer said the older version was much better. I guess newegg reviewers don't matter though.

The G11 has more keys than the G15, just no LCD right?

Yeah I have the older g15 with 18 macro keys like the g11. I must admit the lighted keys are real nice for late night sessions.

I'm thinking the g11 actually. Good, bad?
