Anything as long as it's made by Razer. :pt1cable: 
Seriously, you should go to a PC shop, and try typing/playing on various keyboards and find one that YOU, yes YOU, like. Keyboards are very much personal preference. Personally, I just recently switched to mechanical from 20+ years of membrane, and I'll never go back. Frankly, I don't really understand why I tolerated membrane keyboards so long.

You'll probably need programmable buttons and a keyboard that's fast, responsive, good for double tapping, and won't tire you out. There's only 1 keyboard that does all that Corsair K95. It packs Cherry MX Red mechanical keys, super light, linear (better double and triple tap) and it has 18 programmable buttons over 3 profiles, so 18x3= 54 buttons at your disposal.

Black Widow (Ultimate if you like backlit keys) mechanical keyboards. You would want to try both the regular (uses Cherry blue keys) and stealth (uses Cherry brown keys) versions - they feel very different. I prefer the Stealth myself, but it's not as "clacky"/tactile as the regular Black Widow. There are loads of other mechanical keyboards, with some that use Cherry black and Cherry red keys as well. You really just want to try as many as you can. Some people even prefer membrane over mechanical (although they're crazy if you ask me ;)  ).

The Deathstalker is a membrane keyboard - a very cool looking membrane keyboard to be sure, although perhaps also a bit gimmicky. Personally, I'm a mechanical keyboard convert now so it wouldn't be anything I'd get. Whether you'd prefer mechanical over membrane is entirely something you'd have to find out for yourself. Mechanical keyboards don't "feel" anything like membrane keyboards, and I'm sure they are not for everyone.

If the K95 is too big, try the K70, and to be honest, check the different types of keys, the ones Razer uses for their mechanical keyboards are good for typing, suck for gaming.

Look it up if you don't believe me, Cherry MX Red, which are used in the Corsair keyboards, are by far, the best keyboards for gaming, some might disagree, but the majority will agree that no key switches as good as the Red. And if someone says the Black ones are better, well the Red are just like the black ones but take less actuation force to press it down. In games where reaction time, double taps, and pressing multiple keys simultaneously is crucial, only the Cherry red switches are appropriate. Plus, you get some nice add ons with the K70, you get an extra set of red, curved, WASD and 1-6 keys for FPS games, the curved A and D and 1 and 6 keys will let you know you put your fingers on the right keys without having to look down. It's also got red backlighting, and you can customize it to choose the lighting for each and every single key. So maybe you just want WASD and a couple others keys backlit, you can do that. Another good addition is the nice arm rest and the aluminium baseplate, which gives a strong and sturdy feel. The Razer keyboard is plastic, which makes it feel a bit cheap. There's a ton of great videos and reviews on YouTube that you can check out.

K70 is by Corsair, is purely gamer oriented because no key matches the performance of a MX Red in games. Has a reinforced frame due to a big aluminium plate, cool features like the invidual backlighting, and a nice arm rest that spans across the entire keyboard as well as interchangeable WASD 123456 keys. The Razer's keys are better for typing and office use, still good for gaming, but to be honest, the only reason it's that famous it's because it's a Razer product. Think of Razer as a Harley Davidson, and Corsair's K70 as some other company that makes big bikes. You don't buy a Harley Davidson for performance, you buy it to say you own a Davidson, it's more of a prestige thing. The K70 outperforms the Razer Black Widow, but if you really like the Widow, go for it, it's not bad at all.

Roccat is also about to release a line (Ryos) of mechanical keyboards with a choice of FOUR different flavors of Cherry, if you don't mind waiting a few weeks. Especially if you prefer blue backlit keys over Razer's green. Also has per key illumination which Razer doesn't have.

In terms of overall build quality, performance, and options, it's hard to beat Corsair's K70. But once I took a look at this keyboard, I must say I'm impressed, if you'll want programmable keys, then the Roccat keyboard should do the trick. If you don't really need it, I'd still strongly recommend the K70 (especially the all black model).

Well, it's simple K70, more solid, cool features, has a really nice red underglow because of the raised keys.

Roccat, more flashy, stands out a bit, you get a ton of macro keys which can come in handy.

The K70 keeps it simple, it's performant, and nothing too outstanding, the Roccat is performant, but is much flashier, think of K70 as a Porsche, and the Roccat as a Lamborghini. The Porsche might be faster, but it's not all that special, the Lamborghini quickly catches your eye, and it's really outstanding, it's got more looks than horsepower.
