About 800dpi and 1080p in all games / desktop. I'm still using one very old Logitech G7 wireless mouse. All bateries last Ok for now.

My next target is 480Gb SSD, its a must by now for me.

See ya.

I ended up with a g.skill mouse because I got it on sale during black friday, this thread has reminded me how much I want a G502 to compare. =(

I don't play Valve games (CSGO or whatever) anymore so I'll use Quake Champions and www.mouse-sensitivity.com to convert.

Logitech G700s mouse at 350dpi

Quake Champions - Hipfire 
Sensitivity 1: "mouseRotateSensitivityCoef": 3.750, 
360° distance: 12.4675 inches 
Config FOV: 
Horizontal FOV 140 
Actual VFOV: 114.19 degrees 
Actual HFOV: 140 degrees 
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Hipfire 
Sensitivity 1: sensitivity "3.750000" 
360° distance: 12.4675 inches 
Discrepancy: 0% (0 inches) 
Config FOV: fov_cs_debug 90 
Actual VFOV: 73.74 degrees 
Actual HFOV: 106.26 degrees
I'd probably use a higher FOV in CSGO if that is possible though. Usually I'll go as high as possible (because I don't get disoriented quickly that way, and I like being able to see as much as possible at any one time.)

Yeah, it took me ages to find my dpi/sens. I can't get on with any form of high dpi. Too twitchy/shaky.

CS:GO 400dpi/1.2 sens
Fortnite 400dpi/0.8/.44 ADS/.42 Scope
Quake 400dpi/1.4 sens

400dpi even on the desktop with 1920x1200.

I used to use like, 600/800 when I had a 1280x1024 monitor and an MX518.

Now I use, I guess like, 3200? With a G502 on a [email protected] monitor. I was at 1600 before but I started using it at a higher one and got more used to it. I play more MOBAs now so it seems a bit better.

I have noticed my CSGO scores have gone down though, maybe I'll drop it back down and see if I get better again.
