    A4 Tech

    http://www.hardwarezoom.com/viewcont...octype=Reviews

    The one featured has DPI up to 1000. Latest version has 2500 DPI and runs on lazer. It is waaaay to slippery for me to handle. solid performance for cheap price.

    I got mine (X-750) for $49.90 most places selling $59 I think.

    Im using a Razor Diamondback. Got it at discount, think its was $60. Quite a good mouse, but a bit expensive if bought at the normal price.

    I feel the razor is way too expensive and you're paying more for brand than technology.

    that's very true but i got my copperhead for free =P.

    anyway witness : get a logitech G1. i'm a competitive counterstrike source player as well. and g1 would fit your budget good. dmb ain't that good and really razer mouse aint worth the money =)

    a game sensitivity has nothing much to do with the mouse. it's more of whether you like it or not. will optical mouse all the same. i only go for looks, brand and grip. and i meant in gaming terms.

    dpi = dots per inch. which technically means how much of a small distance it will be able to move. but 800 is more than enuff. =)

    i feel 800dpi is probably enough for 800x600 game play. at most you can stretch to 1024x768. I'm not a very serious gamer myself but I use at least 1200dpi on my 1280x1024 screen.

    The A4 Tech X7 mouse i bought allows me to adjust different dpi sensitivity from a button on the mouse. So if I'm doing other work and need to scroll over a large area I can up the sensitivity and move really fast. For more intricate work I can down the sensitivity to 600 and move really slow and stable. The scroll wheel indicates which 'dpi' you're at with different coloured lights.

    I'm happy with my mighty mouse. Cheap and good. The last I seen (last week) was X710 (entry level 1000dpi gaming mouse) going for $30+ the latest X750 going for ~$45-$60 (depending on shop)

    Initially I didn't believe in 'gaming mice' until i tried my friend's mouse. The cursor movement across the screen was so fluid and smooth! That was when I bought mine. Not only for gaming but it's and overall 'user experience' upgrade

    haha it's quite useful in PS if i'm not wrong. i don't have PS at all. but a small thing to click and dpi would be quite useful there. and copperhead has 2 buttons to adjust the dpi on the side. haha glad you like your mouse. to me, mouse can use can le =).
