Well I've been doing a lot of research on Amazon.com and I found a bunch of results. But I need your opinions. (Why amazon? I have a spare GC that's $50.) Most of them have at least 4 stars.

There's no poll because it doesn't seem to work for me.

1. Thermaltake Gaming Keyboard (KB-CHM-MBBLUS-01) ($34):
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NNQG0N4?redirect=true&ref_=s9_simh_gw_p147_d6_i2

2. CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Blue Edition) ($26):
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DKXXAAQ?redirect=true&ref_=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i3

3. AULA LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard (3 Colorways) ($22):
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FWK8UWI?redirect=true&ref_=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i4

4. Redragon S101 VAJRA USB Gaming Keyboard, CENTROPHORUS USB Gaming Mouse, Keyboard Set ($28):

EDIT 1:

5. HYTOBI K50 USB Wired Gaming Keyboard with LED Backlighting MEK50-BLU (Black/Blue) ($19):

I use the aula dragon tooth keyboards (red) and I have had zero problems with it so far. Also you can also change 7 of the keys with clear buttons so you can see the red light coming through. I only did it with the WASD

I use a 10 years old Alaska keyboard, and it works just fine. Don't waste your time and money on "gaming keyboards". They are the same than normal ones except for the little lights.

Well I'm not you. I decide what I would like to buy and nobody can change that fact. I have a extremely generic keyboard and pretty soon it's gonna fall apart. Most keyboards on the market don't support what I do (gaming). Also some gaming keyboards don't have lights. That's your own opinion though, so be it.

Well, it's not money off my pocket.

That Centhroforus one seems all looks and not work. It literally has edges all over it and it's ugly red, not even the nice one. BUUUUT that is cheaper and comes with a transformers mouse. Then again, maybe it's cheap because it's crap.

That thermaltake one seems pretty good, and you can do nice stuff like http://imgur.com/flMg7WQ with it.

So get that, or Cm Storm Devastator, because that sounds badass as hell.

Best purchase I've ever made. It's lasted me years, backlit blue keyboard (also availed in red or green) soft key, quick punch wired keyboard. Comes with a wired mouse with 3 dpi settings (downside is you can't turn off its light but it's not obnoxious).

$30 free shipping sometimes.

I've had a RedDragon mouse for a while now, and that thing is a monster. (I have the RD Perdition. It's for MMO's). I have heard very good things about their keyboard too. You get a keyboard + mouse, and both of them are quality.

I looked at all of them, and the AULA also looks decent, if you prefer backlighting.

People buy gaming keyboards and mice because they need things with the fastest and most crisp response. The smoother you can snap around and fire in a competitive match, or having macro keys on your mouse/on the side to cast your spells in a Raid, it gives you a huge advantage.

I've been a PC gamer for a long time now. I started out with a cheap keyboard and mouse combo, and after moving to an actual decent set of periphrials, I could never go back.

You know, I can't lie.

I was bronze with a regular keyboard, I decided to buy a "gaming keyboard", now I'm challenger.

With a "gaming mouse" it feels like my hands are hovering when playing League.
Let's not forget the scrolling thing that the "gaming mouse" has to offer.
I've never scrolled down a page faster than the flash in my life
