Yeah, I'm thinking I should just save up for some really good speakers, and just use the Logitech MX310 and Dell SK-8115 I found deep in my closet. Lol.

It often goes on sale at Newegg.com so I would keep your eyes open on it
Not the mx 518 again, it is NOT better than the G500. If you want an optical sensor get a Ikari optical or a Death Adder 3G.

BTW I never upgraded my MX518. Just my keyboard. Why bother upgrading perfection?

I didn't like the mx518. It's one of the worst mouses (mice? ) I've owned.

A few months ago I got a Steeleries Xai since it was on sale, and it's been excellent for me. I'm tons better at FPS games now. So, a mouse can make a huge difference, and the mx518 isn't good for everyone .

Just wondering, are you claw or palm? Also, did you use a microsoft mouse in the past?

Only reason I ask is because I tend to think the mx5xx series is more palm friendly. As far as the microsoft hunch, the xai has a similar shape to some of the older microsoft mice.

I palm grip, which is why I tried the mx518 in the first place. I always thought logitech's shapes were very comfortable.

For mouses I went through:

1. Ancient Microsoft optical mouse. It did not have very good DPI or something, as it would jump a few pixles for a movement instead of panning smoothly. This made headshots kind of hard, since it could skip over the length of a head if they were far away enough.

2. Mx518 Had this for quite awhile, but I never played as good with it, despite it's laser allowing the mouse to move smoothly unlike the MS one.

3. Cyber Snipa Stinger. This was better then the MX518 in every single way imaginable, except the company has a stupid name.

4. Rat 7. This mouse didn't perform that good, about same as mx518, but it was comfortable when configured correctly.

5. Steelseries Xai. By far the best mouse I've ever used. Literally overnight I was tons better then I'd ever been at FPS type games. I didn't even think it was possible for a mouse to give a player that much improvement. I'd say I'm literally twice as good (at aiming) as before I started using this mouse.

I recommend the new Razer DeathAdder Black Edition and a kb with cherry browns or topre if you want to spend that much.
Also, OMG you forgot to mention a mousepad, one of the most important things for gaming. I recommend the Qck Series.

IMO, to me the MS3.0 is the best shape mouse and the DA comes second. I havent tired the Ikari but heard good things.
