Gaming with a mouse!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have been using my 360 controller to play FPS games (Flame suit on!) but I need to use something a little more accurate. Unfortunately, right now my controller gives me more control than my keyboard and mouse. Im using wireless mouse/kb combo. Its not working for me, my mouse seems to lag and i cant get any kind of accuracy. Any suggestions on a KB and mouse that wont break the bank? My 360 controller is not fair in FPS games on pc. Thakns

Try using a wired mouse and keyboard. It is the way I go.

Any wired mouse will remove the lag that you're experincing. No matter how good they claim a wireless device is, there is ALWAYS a noticeable lag. Thats the exact reason I had to an MX1000 wireless laser mouse ($100 at the time). As for a mouse, check out the Logitech G9x.

Yuck. Ugliest looking mouse besides my friends rat9.

If possible just go to a store and try some mice out to see which one feels the most comfortable.

Logitech G110 (if you're cheap) or G510 (if you have the money) and a G500 mouse

I have the latter and it's awesome.

You could go with a logitech MX518, pretty decent mouse for the money along with any keyboard it doesn't need to have backlit lights does it? Also you'll probably need some time getting use to the mouse keyboard combo, but having wired peripherals will stop the lag.

So will using a mouse that can use a 1000hz polling rate, though small (tiny) movements can sometimes jitter on my G500
