Hey, I am looking for a good, backlit, mechanical keyboard. Preferably less than $150 and my main uses will be typing (MS Word) and shooters. Any recommendations?

Well, you got to be more specific. What switch would you prefer, do you want macros, brand preference, etc, etc, etc.
What i would suggest for the limited information you gave us that a Cherry MX Brown keyboard would be a good choice. Browns are the middle ground, good for both gaming and typing.
If you want macro and media keys, I would recommend the Logitech G710+, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., or the CoolerMaster Storm Trigger Cherry Browns, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., (this is the link to the Cherry Blacks, if you order from anyother website/store you can get browns. stupid newegg :D )
If you aren't interested in macros and media keys I would recommend the CoolerMaster QuickFire Pro Cherry Browns, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (once again, Newegg is stupid and they only have the Cherry Reds, try a different website or store)

I don't have a preference for brand (I like razer, logitech, coolermaster) but as long as it works it's good with me. Macros would be nice but I don't use them THAT much. I would prefer mx blue, brown, or red switches. I also don't mind waiting a bit for new keyboards to come out if there are any worth waiting for (I saw some new ones introduced at CES).
