I would have to recommend the good ol' ZBoard. I love this thing so much, I got one for each of my computers. The cool thing about it is the fact that you can change different key sets for different games (I have pre-ordered a World of Warcraft one). The only problem I can see you having with it is the split spacebar, but it only took me about a day or two to get to the point where I didn't notice it at all. Another big implecation would have to be the price.

In my opinion, it would definatly have to be one of the best gaming keyboards out there.

I know it isnt black, but it has backlight keys and a programmable command pad, which would be great for things such as buy commands in CS...

Yes i own the Elite Logitech you posted.

Its nice, and smooth type.

Two major cons:

1) It is almost flat against the desk, no reas elevation so you typing on a flattoned keyboard.

2) In games, if you touch any of the F1-F12 buttons its a problem, youll get kicked out of game. As goes with any of the other special function keys. You can lock the f keys by using the FLOCK button on the upper left.

But if you use all of the functions of games, you use the f-keys, it could be a problem.
