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.

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. :D The scroll wheel indicates which 'dpi' you're at with different coloured lights.

I'm happy with my mighty mouse. :D 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 :lovegrin:

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. =)

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 =).
