Best gaming mouse for $30-40?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As title says, I'm looking for a new mouse. My MX518 is showing its age. Buttons sticking, logo wearing off, etc.

I'm right handed, need at least two buttons on the side by my thumb, and my "mouse style" is a variation of the claw. Index finger on the left click, middle finger on the scroll wheel, ring finger on right click, and pinky on the other side of the mouse.

Of the mice I've looked at so far, the cooler master spawn has caught my eye the most.

Suggestions please? And no, I won't go over $40. It's just a mouse.

I bought a deathadder (which is about 53 dollars) and so far I enjoy it. Its difficult to clean under the buttons which is my only complaint thusfar. I've had it for 60 days.

Do not buy Spawn if you're holding a mouse like that. It's impossible to held Spawn that way. It has a rest for your ring finger.

Of course you can change your habit, Spawn is designed to keep index finger on left button, middle on right button, ring on the rest and pinky on the right side.
