    XArmor U9BL-S has MX Brown switches.
    REALLY depends on what switches you want.

    EDIT:
    MX Blacks - non tactile require more force to press, linear
    MX Browns - tactile and lighter (has a bit of feedback like you can feel the actuation point)
    MX Blues - makes click sound and is heavier than browns but not as heavy as blacks, also has tactile feedback
    MX Clears - same as blacks but requires even more force
    MX Reds- cant remember LOL

    Looking for a plain keyboard the Filco Majestouch has blues, browns or blacks available but it has no extras not even Fn functions.

    The Blacks are best for gaming but for typing they can fatigue, for example the steelseries boards use these.
    The Blues brilliant for typing but are crap for gaming because of the actuation point is longer and it makes clicky sounds which might get annoying in an FPS.
    Browns are good for typing some prefer these over blues, they are okay for gaming good for strategy games where you need to tap keys fast, decent middle of the road between blues and blacks.

    The Razer Blackwidow is shite, dont get it. For a start MX Blues while by no means terrible for gaming are less than ideal and the build quality of the razer is questionable, the right alt key seems to stick to the spacebar plus its all gloss. The DECK LEGEND is a backlit keyboard which is expensive but very well built.

    I liked the Steelseries Siberia v2 headset, the guys in the "audio" sub forum could probably tell you more if you made a thread there. Kinda depends on your budget too.

    I have used Siberia 2's for quite some time, best headset I've ever owned across the board. They are a little... interesting... looking, but they perform fantastically.
