Very basic gaming mouse

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I've had this logitech I-Don't-Know-What for a few years now, and it is a laser mouse so most of the time it's pretty good, except in games, it must have like 200DPI! It's impossible to aim. It was a really basic one clearly not designed for gaming, but I didn't have any money at the time and my mouse was broken so I got the cheapest one that was made by an acceptable company.

Anyway, what's a good, but BASIC gaming mouse? I don't need a 40" SAMOLED+ screen on my mouse or a touchscreen or 500,000,000DPI or some other bull that's useless to the actual functionality of it. I had a Microsoft Sidewinder, the original one, and that was really great but one day it just stopped working so I had to run out and buy this POS. I'd prefer it lasts for a few years at least, not that all the mice I've had haven't.

The most basic gaming mouse you can get is probally the zowie mico as its driverless and only have 3 buttons

But its very small and might not fit your grip style, so you need to find out which kind of grip you use before we can suggest a mouse

I personally just use w/e generic lazer mouse i can get my hands on tbh and its all the same to me for gaming. But i recently bought a razer abyssus and i think its awesome, if you don't feel the need in having a second keyboard attached to your bloody mouse and other gimmicks, its comfy as hell as well.

For $36 it's already on its way to my house.
