I was (so far) never convinced that this is more than a myth thats happily endorsed by mouse vendors to justify the cheaper MCU, but maybe my PCs are just always way too high end to notice a difference.
Pentium E6300 at 3.3GHz
4GB DDR2 RAM
Radeon HD 4670
On Windows 7 on CS:GO I would never get more than 80-90 FPS and drops down to 50. On XP where my mouse is running on 500Hz I'm getting 90-150 FPS even with shadows enabled

Also, it might be a bit more stable on 500hz on your computer, try it out, not like 1ms delay it going to hinder anyone
It's just placebo, but I feel more comfortable with 1000Hz. When I plugged in the mouse for the first time it was running on 1000Hz and just felt amazing. When I tried 500Hz I just couldn't pull off as good shots and changed back to 1000Hz. No big deal, but I'd still prefer to have 1000Hz working because that's what I've been playing on since I got the mouse.
Edit: Same awful perfomance on Windows 7 no matter what rate I set for the mouse.Edited by Mong - 4/12/12 at 4:35am
