Deciding between three different keyboards and need help choosing!

I am in the process of getting a new keyboard, and am stuck between several keyboards. I am going to be using my keyboard for gaming, web surfing, and typing, so pretty much the whole 9 yards.

The first one I was looking at was the Razer DeathStalker. This one caught my eye because the keys are quiet, and are chiclet keys, which I find nice for typing. But I am not sure the the chiclet keys would be good for gaming a couple hours at a time.

The next keyboard that I started to check out was the Logitech G510s. This looked really nice, I'm pretty sure it's not mechanical so the keys aren't loud which I kind of would like. It's also got a pretty decent size, and there are nice LEDs. (I don't really care about the macro keys because I'm into FPS games and not MMO's.)

The third keyboard I was looking at was the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate. I like this keyboard because it has mechanical Cherry MX Blue keys which are clicky and I like the sound (but my friend doesn't like it when we are on voice chat and my headset picks it up). The LEDs on the keyboard are beautiful and fully surround the keyboard.

Now to the actual question, which one should I get? It is a very touch decision for me because I probably won't be getting a new keyboard for at least a year, and these keyboards are fairly expensive and depending on where I purchase them I don't want to regret the decision and not be able to return them. I know that Razer fans are going to auto-bash the Logitech keyboard, so if you do, I will just not listen to you. I am looking for 99% un-biased answers. The mouse I currently have is a Razer DeathAdder, if that helps because apparently a certain mouse and keyboard can perform better somehow. But if you have a different keyboard that would be good, please feel free to let me know, and something to keep in mind when you may suggest a different keyboard would be to make sure that the LEDs are green. It may seem silly but it would match the rest of my build, and my OCD wouldn't go off whenever I am at my desk.

Dont worry I like all brands :D 
So I would so go with the Razer DeathStalker OR Razer BlackWidow Ultimate
(Nothing is wrong with the logictech i just think that the razer's would suit you better)
It all comes down to would you like your clicks to be quite or clickity
The deathstalker is alot cheaper but they are both great keyboards, They both have a nice green glow to them.

Over all i say go with the blackwidow:
The mech keys can give you a better handle in your games
You can edit alot of keys to do what you want
Each key has its own back light :D 

even though it is louder i think it will be a fitting choice.
