This will be my first mechanical keyboard. I really love the design with the floating keys, but as I am primarely going to game with this, I am wondering if these blue switches will fit my needs?
Or could someone link me a different floating design keyboard, with backlighting(as I especially like the glow bevind the keys.

I used to game fps games with cherry mx blue's on another keyboard which is similar to the blue's they offer here. Usually gamers are advised to take on browns or black type switches, but in my case blue's worked quite well for 2 or so years.
Do note that blue type switches tend to be noisy for certain people, but the sound can be decreased by using o-rings.

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll just go for this KB then. The price is awesome! The click-clack isn't a problem to me, and other people will have to live with it. >:)

You should do research on the switches. Although they SAY they're a copy of genuine Cherry switches, they're still knock offs. These blue switches make a click noise that cannot be silenced by o-rings. The only thing those help with is dampening the sound of bottoming out. Also, the actuation force of these blue switches is 60g. Much higher than genuine cherry blues. You may experience finger fatigue. I would recommend reds or Browns for gaming.
