for modern sensors there is no difference.
there are many generations of deathadders with different sensors. going above 1600 on the new ones is not advised.
To use on mouse 1800 dpi, but in game having effective 800.
you are sort of already doing this in all the games that you have - by changing in-game sensitivity.
TL;DR pick one dpi in 400-1600 range and stick to it.
