Reading is fundamental. He said having a quality mouse is more important.

Are you going to give him advice on a gaming mouse or just disagree about something he/she isn't interested in and has no point in this thread, because if you want to continue we can just ignore your post

No, you did not disagree in your post. You stated that a keyboard is more important than a mouse because you can carry out the functions of the mouse with the keyboard. For one, you can also perform the keyboard's function with a mouse by using the on screen keyboard. Secondly, your statement is utterly irrelevant because we are talking about what is more important for gaming.

DPI?? Dots per inch. If you play FPS(First Person Shooter) games, and you have to set the sensitivity really low for accurate aiming, then more DPI helps. A higher DPI lets you move your hand less, and have the same exact cursor movement. A higher DPI makes aiming less "blocky", and more smooth.

If you were to drag your hand 1 inch up with a 500dpi mouse, the cursor would move 500 pixels up at a 1:1 sensitivity. Switch that mouse with a 3200dpi mouse, and the cursor will move up 3200 pixels when you drag your hand up(1:1 sensitivity ratio).

I don't see why response time would matter, as long as it is less than 5ms. Most monitors have >2ms response times, but the sound coming from your computer has much less than 1ms. Yet, when you watch a movie or play games, you cannot tell that you are hearing the sound just before the video is displayed. So I don't think that the response time is a big deal.

Unattended installs has been around since windows 95. I'm sure you are using an OS more recent than 95, right?

Missing the point? Good god, you are missing more than the point. Stop arguing about something completely unrelated to the topic.


As for gaming mice, I highly recommend one. They are really a must for high sensitivity use. The difference is certainly noticeable.
