And he linked to lmnop's picture of the LED braided usb cable. So your famous now too.
Now I know what Jedi hair braids are for: They make the medaclorians flow faster!

The Cherry MX Blues don't really require that much force to press down at all. Plus, they provide a satisfying mechanical click upon actuation. The "50g" might look make them look like they're a bit stiff, but I can speak from personal experience and say they're quite pleasant to use.

The Majestouch is an excellent first mechanical keyboard. It's most certainly better than most mechanical keyboards that are considered to be a good introductory type of board (such as the iOne Scorpius M10). It would kinda be like diving right in and then finding that the water temperature is just perfect.

But since you want something that is good for gaming but also good for fast typing, I recommend something with either the Cherry MX Browns or the Blues.

The Clears are probably fine too, but they require a little bit more force than the Cherry MX Blues. Out of the all of the popular/readily available Cherry MX series switches, the Browns, Blues and Clears are the tactile switches, and the Clears require the most force out of the three.

Do you want something backlit for practical purposes, or just for looks? If it's just for looks, then I would recommend something without backlighting just because it'll allow you to spend less money and still get something really good.

If you can combine the $68.50 with other money that you might have, then I'd go for it since it may mean that you can still get something that costs $100 or more.

However, I strongly urge you to first figure out which switch type you think that you will like the most. Otherwise, you could end up with a switch type that isn't right for you and then it wouldn't be an upgrade at all. Plus, knowing which switch type you want will make it much easier to pick out a keyboard.

The biggest thing for me is the bios connectivity. Hopefully this will be less of an issue in the future. I currently have my keyboard hooked up with USB and I'm liking it (did it this way because I plugged in PS2 at first, computer was still on, and it didn't read, so I was like ***!)

I think it depends actually. Blues/Browns/Blacks have all been pretty decent for gaming. I think it may depend on what kind of games you play mostly.

cherry MX Black or Cherry MX red key switches.
for black the filco board is good and the steelseries 6GV2 is good. for reds you would need to get a cherry board of ebay, and you may or may not be able to get one for under $150.
