I'm looking for a good mouse for both FPS's and RTS's. Here is what i am looking for:

1. What's your grip style? Palm, right-handed

2. What's your sensitivity? Varies, but between 800-3000, also looking for adjustable sensibility

3. What's your maximum budget? $60 on Amazon

4. Do you want additional buttons? At least two on the thumb side, extra are welcome but not really looked for.

5. What games do you play? BF2, BF3, Quake/Doom series, SCII, CoH, Diablo II, Diablo III

6. Do you mind about prediction? I'm not too sure if it i good or bad, but i'd prefer no prediction as none of my previous mouses have had it

7. Other relevant information: I need a heavy mouse, for fairly big hands. Long cable is preferred.

I had been thinking of these mouses, but i need a bit more options or opinions before pulling the trigger

- Logitech G500
- R.A.T. 5
- Cooler Master Storm Sentinel Advance II

I'm also looking for a good mousepad for said mouse.

1. Hard or cloth? Cloth

2. Rough or smooth? Smooth

3. Which size approximately? 25x20, can be longer but not too wide

4. What's your maximum budget? $20 on Amazon

The Deathadder is a definite exception. I would strongly urge you to take it into consideration.

If you do end up considering it, I would suggest the Black Edition. (No lights, matte sides as opposed to gloss on the regular one. Still the same price, if not cheaper on Amazon right now.)

Well, i had checked it, just because it seems to be popular on OCN. Glossy is not for me so i indeed checked the Black edition

But if it isn't that bad, i'm willing to consider it. I just need a reliable gaming mouse.

I really love my black edition. It fits my hand perfectly (palm grip) and it tracks really well.

The gloss isn't for me either. It's on my Naga and I really don't like it.

Well, seems like i have narrowed my hoiced to either the Deathadder or the G500. Both are also roughly the same price. Which one would be best, sensor and weight-wise?

DA sensor is better. It's notorious for its lack of any kind of positive or negative acceleration, along with zero prediction. It's also lighter.

Well, i'm looking for the best i can get, for under $150 ($120 and under is preferred, but willing to spend a bit more on quality)

I have a thread going on with more info if you wish to contribute though
