I'd suggest the RAT, as the G500 has an ADSN 9800 sensor IIRC (edit: it's an s9500 actually, but that still has acceleration), which has acceleration built into the sensor. You should also know that the RAT 7 can't be used on most cloth mouse pads; I used to have one, which I returned due to some sensor problems, and it would not track properly on my cloth mouse pad.

See if you can find a G400, though; it has a sensor with no major flaws.

I have both the g500 and rat7 and both are completely different. If you have smaller hands the g500 might work out better for you. The rat7 is a bIt wider and forces you to use your middle finger and ring finger to left click and right click as the buttons are far apart. I got used to it quickly though. Also, I loved the g500 so much I bought a second one, never had a single issue with either one. You can't go wrong with either one though.

Edit: both work just fine on my cloth pad too. I use the xtrac ripper xxl

I have relatively large hands, didn't bother measuring it, but I would say it's just a little above average.

I've heard a lot of complaints about cloth pads with the RAT; some work fine and others are horrendous.

Personally, I own the RAT7, I would recommend it as long as you choose the proper surface to use it on. If the surface has any room to move, such as a pad that was once curled at any time or is susceptible to vibrations, this mouse will be a no-go as the sensor is just too sensitive.

An easy way to tell if you have a proper surface I have found is to lightly tap with your fingertips on the surface, if the surface has any room to wiggle, you will have issues with the RAT7.

Once you have the proper surface, the RAT is far superior.

The surface also has to be flat; on a surface which has a ridged texture, it will not track properly. Also, mine appeared to have tracking issues on surfaces that had multiple colors, like my desk, but that was probably part of the sensor problems I was having.

Time for a new mousepad. Mine is a cloth colored really cheap one for the time.
