Which CM storm keyboard should I get?

I'm big on FPS games and I'd prefer something that is not backlit and has a number pad on the right.

Filco Majestouch V2 with Black or Brown switches would be my suggestion since you for whatever reason don't want backlighting that can be turned off.
If you want one of the CM keyboards, just pick one that meets your odd requirements. Most of the CM keyboards are backlit.

For switch type, you have to decide if it's important to you to feel the point where you've activated the switch before bottoming out on the key. This is called a tactile feel. Switches that have this are Browns, Clears, and Blues. Blues aren't optimal for gaming because the point of release is much higher than the point of actuation, making repeated key presses slower. If you live in an apartment your neighbor will probably come to b**** at you if you have blues as well.

The other type of switch is a linear switch, where the force to depress the switch never gets any harder and you feel no bump as the switch activates. These are Red and Black switches, which are better suited for gaming because of their linear nature. I personally find Reds too light, so I prefer Black switches.

I tend to be a heavy typist who bottoms out all the time, so not having a tactile feel on the switch doesn't bother me because I hear the key bottom out.
