Cheapest semi-decent mouse for gaming?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Which mice are available for a low price which are semi-decent for gaming? I am in need of a semi-decent mouse for CSS and I don't have much money to spend on one (Up to £10)? I know, it's not much money to spend, but I cannot spend any more.

Thanks smile.gif

Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical for sure, or one of the older Logitech MX series mice off Ebay.

Using an MX 510 right now, have a 518 as well and they're pretty nice mice. My advice is see what you can afford and feel how comfortable the mice are in a shop. Also google reviews on any mouse you decide to buy as for £10 you could get a bargain or something you'd hate. If you don't find reviews, it probably isn't worth gaming on.

The intellimouse is probably your best bet tbh, it's meant to be quite good.

The 'back' and 'forward' buttons make it look a bit funny tongue.gif Any idea why it's a little bit more than the Wheel Mouse Optical one???

They make it look funny? When did form become more important than function?

Besides, it looks just fine in person.

Anyway, I think the Intellimouse Optical has been discontinued because it's no longer on Microsoft's site (err, it's at their store, but there's no product page for it).
