Good budget gaming mouse for CS:GO

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi there! i'm looking to buy my first gaming mouse for CS:GO. Budget is capped at $30. G100s seems to have a great shape, but I've heard build quality issues about it and they say the PCS is low (maybe I'm just paranoid, since my ****ty A4Tech mouse malfunctions from my swipes in CS:GO). Are there better mice in this price range?

Rival 100 or G303 if its still on sale.

used black WMO http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00025O7FC/?condition=used

nine dollars (okay, fourteen with shipping), no malfunctions, just negative acceleration, and best of all, tons of street cred thumb.gif

Also very low pcs. Good mouse for high sens tho.

It's not "very low" when OC'd to 250hz or higher, it's like 1.5ms or something.

and it degrades gracefully instead of malfunctioning; you basically won't notice unless you surpass the speed limit really hard

A4Tech v3 malfunctions at 1.7m/s or something

why can't you buy used? warranty?

i think the G100s is ok if it doesn't cost much more than ~$15. i wouldn't say it has build quality issues, but you get what you pay for (budget mouse).
maybe a razer abyssus?

Budget and build quality aren't going to be used in the same sentence when it comes to mice. So don't expect much if you plan to buy cheap. G100s would be fine for the price, it's my Recommendation. Safer shape than the g302-3. Idk why people recommend others the g303 unless the buyer can try it out in store.

Ye; you're aboslutley right. I'd still call 1.5 very low however. I game with one and have for many years. Playing with one at anything that approaches a low sensitivity is not optimal. It limits your versatility a great deal if you play low sens, and can only be used in linear games. I love the mouse, but it prevents me from entry fragging in certain spots because of my low sens.

The graceful malfunction tho is something that I find pretty nice, all things considered. Does anyone know why it malfunctions that way? I'd have to assume it's because of it's static framerate, but I really know nothing that technical so if someone could explain it to me that would be cool.

Lastly I don't think you can overclock the mouse if you play CS/TF2 on any serious level due to ESEA restricting windows test mode. Maybe there is another way to OC out of test mode, but I'm pretty ignorant there.
