Looking for a new mouse+mousepad for Sniping, other FPS games, Browsing, etc.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I've been using this Logitech G5 for a while now but it constantly bothers me when I try to move it, as the cable tangles together often.

Instead of having a straight cable, imagine spinning a yoyo around 200 times and laying its string on your desk and using that as a mouse cable.

I'm considering the Razer Deathadder, either the 3.5g or the old 2000 dpi one.
My mouse pad is pretty crappy, some dollar store one. I wouldn't mind spending like $10 on a decent mousepad.

Any good snipers/fps players out there with a good mouse want to share their opinion?
This is going to be somewhat of a Christmas present to myself so my budget is whatever I feel sounds good.

Be aware of the drivers for Razer, for me they stop working after some time.
Today i went to the store to return my Razer DA and they gave me a new one, but it still shows the same issue, i reformatted because i tought it was the windows itself but no! I even tried both mice on my laptop same issue. Not to mention the response from Razer Support

Just my 2 cents be aware! Other than that i really like the mouse fits my hand perfectly

Roccat Kone+ is awesome sauce i have one,goes up to 6000dpi but you will need a deccent mat for it.

Maybe if you can flex that budget for the mat then you could get a Steel Series 4HD,ideall for the kone.

Cyborg Rat 7...has a deceleration button near your thumb a.k.a. 'precision aim mode'

5600dpi switchable on the fly, really comfortable, sturdy too.

I'd have to say the Roccat Kone+ too. It, like the R.A.T. 7, has an "easy aim" mode where the DPI can be automatically reduced to something your more comfortable with on the scope. It also has a far superior sensor than the R.A.T. 7, which is sadly what is holding it back.

If you don't need an "easy aim" button, then the G500 is a great mouse on a budget, and uses the same excellent sensor as the Kone+. Do note that I would not recommend using the Kone+ or G500 over 5000 DPI, as that is the actual limit of the sensor, and the rest is just software acceleration which can kill accuracy, not that you need 5700/6000 DPI anyway.
Slowly upgrading.
