    I can't help you with the chair choice but a lot of the time backaches is because of how you sit or how long you sit, not getting up and moving enough, weak core (body) etc.

    Besides that I would recommend you go to a store and try out different ones to get a feel for what they're like compared to what you have now.

    People often pick the wrong chair because they go for something they feel comfortable. A good chair shouldn't feel like a bed.

    This is what I use at work and at home. Back problems stopped aboud 5 weeks after I got it.

    So I was in a similar situation about a month back. I find that I spend a lot of time in my home office between gaming and work, I end up going through a chair between 1-2 years (generally closer to one). At work they got us setup with Hermon Miller Aeron chairs, and so I got kind of spoiled as I find they are one of the most comfortable chairs I have ever sat in. I finally decided to just bite the bullet and buy an Aeron chair for my home office. I was able to find the exact one I wanted on Craigslist. It was about a year old (which is really quite new for these chairs) and was in perfect condition. These chairs are comfortable and help you posture. The one at my desk is actually 9 years old and is still in nearly perfect condition after heavy use.

    You will end up spending more then you originally wanted (I ended up spending $500), but it is well worth it as it will last a long time.
