people here at OCN love logitech, generally, they have good customer service and their mouses last quite a while

me though, i love razer, i have a mamba and a black widow ultimate keyboard, and they havnt failed me yet, neither has the razer copperhead that has lasted me 3 years and counting. (i know im gonna get bashed for it, alot of people here hate razer almost as much as they do apple, youre not new, im sure you have noticed, but razer does make some cool and durable products).

The mamba with its 6000+ dpi is so sensitive, that whenever i use any other mouse, even "gaming mouses" they all seem to lag for me. since you play FPS and MMO's you should look into the razer naga, the razer anansi.

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Razer-Naga-Epic-Gaming-Mouse/dp/B004AM5RAM/ref=pd_bxgy_e_text_b"]Amazon.com: Razer Naga Epic Gaming Mouse: Electronics[/ame]

but there are certain razer products to stay clear from that seems to net bad rep for the company, such as the lycosa keyboard and the ironclad mousepad


for a mat, jsut get any standard uni color cloth mat such as those from steel series, razer mousepads arnt bad either but their generally a bit more expensive then standard cloth mousepads. I personally use the steel series I-2 glass mouse pad.

i list razer products only because i guarantee everybody else would give you logitech, steel series, and coolermaster suggestions so im just giving you more choices to choose from

I'm happy with mine. It's comfortable and seems fairly precise. I'm no mouse guru, though. There may be better options with a similar feel. Like I said, it's comfortable wink.gif

lol the mamba is pretty expensive, but i think its worth every penny. also, the black widow is a very nice keyboard, theres a in depth review here from another OCN member:

I use the g9x and have been generally very happy with it. I have a few qualms (minor):

The middle mouse button (scroll wheel) is difficult to press down - makes it very useless in my opinion. I had heard this before I purchased mine and scoffed "Psh, it can't be that bad, but it is - simply unpleasant and awkward to push. If you don't use the middle mouse button (I don't) you certainly won't mind.

The grips are detachable, so it has a bit of a squeaky/creaky feel to it if you grasp it too hard. Doesn't bother me too much. I actually like being able to detach the grip because I can take a rough sponge to it for easy cleaning.

Another issue is that the 'hyperglide' toggle is on the bottom of the mouse. I have a G500 at work, and the toggle for it sits right on top near the scrollwheel - Extremely convenient, and I use it all the time to fly through web pages, code I'm working on, blogs, documents, etc. I never use it on the G9x because of its counter-intuitive placement.

I put mouse skates on it on day 1 as I do with all of my other mice - the brand I bought didn't fit properly - my fault I guess, so be careful if you usually buy skates for your mice - may have the same problem.

Other than the things above I really enjoy it. The software is actually very nice - allows you to set up custom profiles with tweaked DPI settings (I believe you can set up to 5-6 different settings, and swap through them with the 2 +/- buttons near the left mouse button. You can change the color of the LED to whatever you like, change the scroll settings, and all of your other standard options like polling rate (up to 1000hz), etc.

I like a pretty heavy mouse, so being able to adjust the weight (I maxed it out) was very nice too. If you like a lighter mouse you can remove all of the weights and it's fairly light.

Great for FPS games, I have plays hundreds of hours of Starcraft 2 with it (RTS), as well as general browsing/email/etc.

May be awkward if you use a palm grip, but if you're a finger grip you will probably love it.

Happy shopping.

I prefer the R.A.T. 9 for modular-ness (I find modular sexy).

I have it and love it personally, the first few days the middle button was a pain but after gaming with it for a while it was no biggy it softens up I think..the software is excellent as mentioned above. The on the fly dpi adjustment is the best option, being able to switch back and forth from a faster to a slower dpi for say sniper to assault rifle is just great in fps. The only issue i have is i use palm grip so the left top side button is a little hard to reach, the added weights and build quality is awesome, I paid about 42 on sale at newegg so another plus over the much more expensive razar's.
