DAS boards are great if you can get a student discount for them (15% off plus free shipping). They only offer blue and brown switches though. In my opinion, would go with WASD though. They've received very good reviews at Geekhack (mechanical keyboard lovers forum) and only $120 for great customization. One nice thing about DAS is they are very easy with returns so if you don't like the switches you picked you can return it for the other one.
In terms of picking your switch, it really really boils down to preference. Brown switches are the SAFEST first switch and I think you will be very happy with them. If you plan to do more typing and less gaming (and don't mind very loud noises while typing) go with the blue switch. Red, black, and clear switches tailor towards people with more experience with mechanical keyboards so I would veer away from them for now.
I say go with a WASD with brown switches.
