If you're spending over $100, I'd just go with a Filco/Leopold. They're the cherry switch boards with the best build quality (coincidentally these were the original mech boards that started this craze), and you get to pick your switch type.
I'm also not sure about Cherry reds. Cherry red's had a cult following on Geekhack (mech board central) for a long time due to their extreme rarity, but once Filco finally released an easy to get red edition, and others followed suit, the reports were mixed. Many just liked browns better. I've used blues and browns, and I really liked the brown switches. These are actually similar to reds (a hair heavier), but they have a slight actuation bump that really helps for not bottoming out when typing. I also like the actuation point for gaming, because you get the small feedback to your finger that tells you that the key has fired off (reds are a clickless mech key if that explains it better). The brown actuation point is a very nice and subtle thing, not at all like the loud clacky blues that I have in my own Filco board, although the clack does have its own appeal.
With linear switches, the only way to know for sure that you're fired the key off from touch alone is if you bottom out, which is strange because you're supposed to avoid bottoming out mech switches in the first place!
