Yes, I can tell you that I do notice a difference between 13ms and 5ms click latency, take a situation where you and another AWPer both have the same latency, the same general reaction time, and one of you has an M65 and the other an Ikari Optical. Your click will register 2 ticks (on 128 tick) after the Ikari Optical, every tick counts because it is what allows you to tell the game that you are shooting, where you are looking, etc, if the server gets the user command that says I am shooting 2 ticks after the Ikari Optical and none of us had any lag, packet loss, choke, or anything else that would influence a problem. You will lose. Every time. I've had plenty of times with my FK (+15ms on the latency graphs) where I shot with an AWP and went "What? I shot but I died first?" and then realized it wasn't my fault at all, it will also influence how quickly you can flick shot or pixel shot. I noticed this in Crossfire when picking down Egypt with an AWP, there's a few spots that are "pixel peeks" and I can hit them consistently with my Kinzu v1 (which has +0.9ms from an Ikari Optical) but on my FK I will miss nearly every time.
