I've got $110 to spend on a keyboard, which should i get?

I want it to be mechanical, backlit and to have a rest for my wrists. These 2 seem to be pretty good, which is better? Or is there something better than both?

the cooler master or k90. i would say cooler master just because all the switches are mechanical and some of the k90s are rubber dome, and i just don't care for corsairs mechanical boards, but that's more a personal issue than a fault of they keyboards.

It's the Corsair K90, go with that one.

the k90 gets dirty really quick i've heard because of the open design, and the delete key isn't cherry mx which would bother me
and the blackwidow isn't cherry mx red

so, neither
get the rosewill cherry mx red keyboard

if i had to pick, I'd get the blackwidow simply because it's not open design. Even though cherry mx blues would slow me down. I use all the keys on my keyboard quite often, so going from mechanical to rubber constantly would be anoyying which would make the k90 a poop choice for me.
