Just a heads up i really didnt know where to post this topic at so i thought here would be a suitable place.

Ok so i built a pretty sick PC
Intel core 2 duo e6700
2gigs corsair xms ddr2 pc 8000 6400 series
BFG 8800gtx 768 mb gddr3 ram
ASUS p5b-e mobo
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card
Thermaltake toughpower W0117RU ATX12V / EPS12V 750W
Logitech x-540 speakers 5.1 surround sound
Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

And now heres the problem
Saitek Eclipse II keyboard

The keyboard is good for those people who arent gamers. Nice 3 light feature and what not quite/silky smooth keys BUT ITS HAS A RETARD key buffer. I wont recognize over 2 key's being pressed at once. Im basically looking for a keyboard that i can use to play Step Mania and to be able to press 2+ keys in starcraft or Warcraft 3. Any Ideas i wants to buy one for around 70 bucks which in my opinion is worth it.

I had a cheaper (about $40) but similar keyboard with the same issue - but I was using XP Home at the time. I ended up switching to a Wally-World "MI" branded multimedia keyboard that only cost $10 and I am able to press up to 5 keys at once, which I really like but the keyboard in general sucks. This may be an issue with XP, as this keyboard would not work properly under XP - it is working flawlessly under Vista Home Premium.
