[Buying Advice] Gaming keyboard - Mechanical <5k

I have been looking to upgrade from my Arctosa for sometime now. I have been reading up a lot about Mechanical keyboards and am interested in them. Absolutely not interested in upgrading to another membrane KB.

Hence would like to know some of the options I have south of 5000 bucks.

Also have never experienced a mech KB before, so would like to know of someone's experience regarding a similar upgrade from Membrane to Mechanical.

Usage: Gaming-60% Typing-40% (Would have been 90% Gaming if not for TDF :) )

Thanks for looking

Razer Blackwidow Ultimate, or Blackwidow(no backlight).

Be on lookout for the 2013 edition, I saw it being listed in flipkart(coming soon).

Does your motherboard support PS/2 port? cause PS/2 has n-keyroll over, USB has 6 (AFAIK).

you can also check Das Keyboard which is my dream keyboard ;)

EDIT: not purchased it yet. :p

Mobo does have PS2. I am aware of it's benefits, but saw very few options with it.

I find backlighting very distracting and always have them turned off, so it is not much of an issue.

The Das KB is exotic, how do I get it? :D (no one in US or elsewhere)

Got that wrong. Corrected. Looks like I will drop the idea and maybe get my friend to buy it for me in the land of cheap electronics.
