3. Max budget...i'd like to stay under 80, dont mind buying used if it's well cared for.
4. Additional buttons would be nice...dont need 15, but ~7 would be nice, including main left/right.
5. RTS mostly, going to try BF3 and a few others, DIII for sure, maybe even *gasp* Skyrim
6. no clue, i've never had a mouse that had it.
other info..right handed, small hands, would prefer a "fit" than ambidexterous. also, broke my pinky in two places a few years back, so a support or soemthing for it would be nice. i was looking at the Cyborg R.A.T. 7, maybe 9. wireless would be prefered, but it's subjective to budget, not sure the 9 is worth that much for the wireless option. If i go wireless, i would like one that has the option to go wired/wireless, seems likea good thing.
cant think of much else, thanks all

The Razer Naga Epic has 12 buttons on the left side with the forward and back button place towards the top of the left click button, fits a small, light, right handed claw grip and I believe has replaceable piece for the right side, one which provides the figures with support. Now it may not support the pinky unless you use your middle finger to left click and ring finger to right click. But the Epic can also be turned between wired and wireless. I believe it is $126 so its a little over your budget. If you don't mind minimum buttons, I use the Zowie EC2. Only has forward and back buttons on the side as extra, although lacks the pinky support but is a fairly wide-ish mouse for me at least. Or if you want to wait the Naga Hex comes out next month, which I plan to try.

Hope this helps. Cheers cheers.gif

Crunkles...yeah, that helps, thank you. I just wish stores would carry a larger variety of mice so i can actually hold it. pictures look shiny n cool, but it's tricky to figure out just where the (thumb) buttons would end up being in relation to my hand. pretty sure i dont need 12 extra buttons (naga), but that Mamba/ Elite looks like it might be comfy. the Hex looks nice too, again just having trouble relating button to thumb placement w/o having held one.
as for my pinky...i click normally, pointer & middle, but my pinky 'drags' on the mousepad so it starts to ache, hence the looking for "support"

they should set up a B&M stgre that specializes in keyboards, mouses, and mousepads for all of us old school gotta touch it shoppers!

Just want to say that I know like next to nothing about what a good "gaming" mouse is, apart from like basic stuff like DPI. Only reason I want an average mouse is because my Dell USB mouse's right click and middle click is starting to fail/stick.

1. What's your grip style?
Claw, but I honestly dont know if I'd play better with palm. My current mouse is (I think) small for my hands, its less than 5 inches long, so I mightve just been forced to use Claw grip all this time. But I guess it'd be safer to stick with claw grip?

2. What's your sensitivity?
Not too sure how to describe this :|, best way I can put it is that in CS:S, I use about 6-7 sensitivity setting, with no acceleration and stuff.

3. What's your maximum budget?
The cheaper the better, like preferably 30 dollars or something tops lol. Im not expecting to get some awesome gaming mouse with that budget, all I really care about is getting something that works, and is an improvement over what I currently have.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Left/Right/Scroll wheel click is enough, one more button would be cool, but I really dont care.

5. What games do you play?
Mostly FPS, CS:S, BF3, and then a couple of third person games like Arkham City and GTA. (But yeah mostly FPS)

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I have no idea what this is, so I guess you guys being the experts should recommend something tongue.gif

7. Other relevant information:
Has to be wired, and other than that, I dunno. I'd like to say Im pretty careful with my mouses? mic?, since this basic Dell mouse has been in fairly high useage for like 4 or 5 years, and its still almost fully functional. Im not too sure what else I should say here, like I said I dont know much about mouses. I guess if possible I dont want a mouse with like weight adjustment and stuff. It wouldnt be a deal breaker, but something that just works out of the box with just like some sensitivity configuration would be fine for me.

If you like playing at 2000 dpi and are used to traditional right handed shaped mice like the deathadder then my only suggetion would be a Zowie EC1 or EC2 They are like a deathadder but more precisie. The EC1 feels just like a deathadder in shape and the EC2 is the same thing but slightly smaller for mid to small handed people like me.

Damn....was looking into the Mamba 2012...havent found any good reviews on it yet. The previous Mamba, did it go wired/wireless both, or just one? Found a RAT 7 & 9 for cheap and the pinky rest looks like it'd do the trick....reviews seem to be mixed...i guess that's true of all reviews tho, eh?

Quiet mouse...I'm needing something that doesn't go "click click click" all night like my current G9x. What's out there?

They're basically the same mouse and can go both wired and wireless. The older Mamba 3.5G (with older firmware) and the Lachesis 3G are the only mice from Razer right now with Philips Twin-Eye sensors and NO Dynamic DPI Scaling, which is basically pointer acceleration. I'm in touch with Razer about this and it might be that they'll release firmwares for their other mice to disable Dynamic DPI Scaling, but I can't guarantee that of course.

The RAT 7 & 9 use the same Twin-Eye sensor although afaik have no Dynamic DPI Scaling. Anyway for any of these Twin-Eye mice:
They are great and probably the most accurate out there, but make sure to use them on hard mousepads (plastic, glass...) and that you have no vibrating things around the mouse (desk ventilator or subwoofer for example).

I've heard about something like this, but it definitely was no gaming mouse. You'll probably find it pretty easy by googling for silent or quiet mouse.
