My old mouse just died, it was a REALLY cheap mouse, microsoft intelli 2.0 I think (or maybe 1.0 :/ ). So basically not meant for gaming at all.. Also, I know like zero when it comes to gaming mice.
In any case. Now I am in the market for buying a new mouse. ALthough I am not really on a budget, but since I was using such a cheap mouse for so long, I dont see the point of putting in too much money on a new mouse.
My screen is a 1366x768 resolution screen, 15.6 inches. I've heard that the dpi required is relevant to screen size. So firstly, what is the idle mouse dpi I should get with my screen size?
I am not in the US so I will tell you what options I have (they are listed at the end).
1. What's your grip style?
Apparently I'm a palm grip (just read on razers site what grip's are tongue.gif ). But I heard that claw grip is pretty good so I might try to give that a show?
2. What's your sensitivity?
Medium I guess.
3. What's your maximum budget?
Since I'm not in the US, I dont think my budget would help. I have listed my options at the end.
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yup I'd like extra buttons.
5. What games do you play?
League of leagends, RTS (such as startcraft 2) games, and sometimes fps or action games (such as crysis, max payne, hitman, deus ex, etc)
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I read what it is, but not quite sure how it will affect me.
7. Other relevant information:
Screen 1366x768 15.6 inch (laptop)
Mouse pad is qck steel, cloth and (i guess) smooth.
right hand
OPTIONS:
mx-518 (refurbished)
these will be new:
A4 TECH X-760H
Gigabyte GM-M6880
A4 Tech XL-747H
A4 Tech X-7 V-Track F3

Based on your main game types I would recommend a g500 ,g700 or Naga Hex. Since you don't seem to be playing any multiplayer shooters I do not see a reason for you to settle for a optical with only 2 side buttons. Just my opinion. I know nothing about a4 or gigabyte sorry, the mx 518 is a solid mouse though.

Looking for a mousepad.

7. Hard or cloth? Cloth

8. Rough or smooth? I don't really know the difference but I guess smooth.

9. Which size approximately?

10. What's your maximum budget? $45

My mouse is a Logitech G500

How would this mousepad be? Is it cloth surface? Don't know how much this matters but I play with a moderately high sensitivity. Meaning, I only use about 2-4 inches of the entire mousepad surface. I don't move my whole hand around the pad like the super low sensitivity gamers.

1. What's your grip style?
Palm for general usage, claw for gaming.


2. What's your sensitivity?
900 for Battlefield 3, 1200-1600 depending on the game.

3. What's your maximum budget?
60 bucks. I'm thinking about the G9X from Logitech since Newegg has the MW3 edition in my range.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Possible since I plan on guild wars 2 but I think in the grand scheme of things extra buttons don't matter. But I'd like have reachable side buttons, sensitivity buttons and anything extra is just a bonus in my eyes.

5. What games do you play?
FPS, Some RTS, Action games, Mobas like Dota 2/LoL. Basically a little bit of everything.


6. Do you mind about prediction?
My Corsair M60 doesn't have it. But it's ergonomics don't help for general use and it's side buttons

7. Other relevant information:
23.6" 1080p monitor. I'm pretty much stuck between the G500 and the G9X. I also have big hands. Also thinking about the deathadder but TBH it's look bother me...a lot.

Choose your path. thumb.gif



Both dont feature any kind of acceleration/prediction. The G400 have a lower max speed at 1800 and jitter at 3500. Both are in your budget.

Hated the G400M TBH. Much preferred the MX518 over that as far as sensor goes.

Right now it's between the G500, Deathadder and MW3 Edition G9x

EDIT: So I researched. All things considered I went with the G9X. With the grip it would be perfect to replace my M60.

Why hate the G400? At 800 DPI it's great, even 1800 and 3600 are kind of ok.
Fast enough

I had one before and to be honest it just felt cheap in comparison to mice around it. And I also had some problems with it's tracking unless that's been fixed with the latest rendition of the mouse.
