New Keyboard? Which one!?!

Okay, so I really need to get a new keyboard. I am going to be using it for gaming. My MOST, MAINLY reason to getting a new keyboard is because i want one that has backlight so i can see the keys in the dark while im gaming and whatnot.

What I want in my keyboard..

1.) Backlight (preferably blue, or different colors)
2.) Backlight must be bright and look good
3.) Durable Keyboard
4.) Reliable keyboard
5.) I dont want the keys to be really clanky and annoying. They dont have to be dead silent, but not really annoying.
6.) Keys wont wear off or break easily
7.) Will last me a long time.
8.) Sleek and nice looking.


These are some of the ones I have picked out so far..

Those 2 i have picked out im very interested in, but which one? I only want one for the backlight really, and it look really nice. Would the Saitek II do the job? or should i spend more for the Saitek III? I dont want to spend a lot of money. One review i seen on Youtube said that the Saitek II has loud keys. But im not sure. If they arent too loud it wont bother me. Also i put my keyboard and mouse in the keyboard tray that is attached to my desk. Would the saitek III fit?

or should i get another keyboard?

    Whats the difference if it is Mechanical? And if i did want to pay more for a mechanical one, which one should i get? I was planning on getting the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate, but i felt the keys on it at bestbuy and the keys seemed clanky to me, and loud.
