Yeah, Razer, Logitech and Steelseries are mice you really can't go wrong with. Find a budget and choose your favorite. I'd personally recommend the deathadder, but I'm a palm gamer and you're a claw gamer so something ambidextrous like the salmosa or that steelseries mouse is better suit. However, I must say that when looking for a mice always do your research in order to make sure that there's no acceleration on the mouse as it will help you game more accurately. This is especially important in games where muscle memory is involved (team fortress 2, quake, and maybe even things like battlefield). Acceleration screws up your minds ability to develop your skills in judging where you want to aim because the aiming is itself inconsistent.

No, dont go into the CPI/DPI trap!
Most FPS pros use 400 dpi anyways and that is a low sensetivity.
6/11 in windows and enhanced pointer precision off.
I would take a look at the CM storm spawn, it has a great sensor and is built for the claw grip. The Logitech G400 or Razer Deathadder are also very good but they are more palm based.
These mice are generally flawless, just remember to get the latest software.

It honestly doesn't matter what CPI/DPI you game at as long as the sensor keeps tracking at high velocity and there's no acceleration in the sensor/windows environment.

Choose what DPI/CPI you want and set it to whatever you want.

Not all mice handle high CPI/DPI amounts, many people I know use the lowest ingame sens and the highest windows and 5000 dpi.
It's just a placebo effect, tricking yourself into playing better because you think you aim better with 5000 dpi.
If you want a high DPI/CPI mouse go laser, but almost all laser mouse to date have accel issues or other issues.

Do not do this, the mouse tracks terribly above 800dpi.

That's not true, everyone is different. I game in FPS anywhere from 1000-700 sesitivity and 300-400 for more accurate shooting.
