Looking for a gaming keyboard/Mousepad

Off Topic Dicussion
I play tons of PC games, and right now I am using a generic HP keyboard that I've been using for like 3 years... yeah. The amount of grime and gunk on it is unbelievable, although to be honest ive never had a single problem with it, and Ive used it every day, which I think is pretty impressive.

I play pretty much any genre and PC is my primary platform, so I think it is time to upgrade keyboards. I also need a mousepad, since I'm using the Cataclysm collectors edition mousepad (which has razor sharp edges... I taped microfiber cloths to it, and its annoying, although it has good tracking and performance)

I've been looking at the Razer BlackWidow standard, since I love the sound the keys make and the overall look of it, plus the extra macro keys. A lot of people say Razer BlackWidow has bad build quality, but I've had a razer naga for a while with no problems, so maybe their mouse quality isn't the same as their keyboards... idk.

Also I'm looking for a smooth, speed mousepad that is under 20 dollars. I'm not paying 25-50 for a mousepad. For the keyboard, 100 dollars max.

PC specs

i5 2500k @ 4.3GHz cooled by Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus
8GB 2x4 1600MHz RAM
ASROCK P67 Extreme4 mobo
650w CORSAIR HX Modular PSU
HAF 922 case
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
I _really_ enjoy this mouse pad:


$20 bucks, 2 surfaces (I use the control surface), and pairs really nicely with my Naga. (set for 4000 DPI no acceleration, trying to start getting used to 5500DPI)
