Windows 7: Gaming Mouse Suggestions

Gaming Mouse Suggestions

Im wanting to get a decent mouse. ATM, I have a little Logitech wireless one (not sure which one just a $25 one from Walmart) and its done OK, but looking for something a bit nicer.

I have a couple Im looking at, but My local Best Buy doesnt even have either, so running up there to get a hands on isnt a option.


Since my Keyboard is a Saitek Cyborg (which I love BTW) I was looking into this Mouse (or RAT??)
Newegg.com - Saitek CCB437050002/04/1 Black USB Wired Laser 4000 dpi Cyborg R.A.T. 5 Gaming Mouse
Theres more expensive versions of it, but the features they offer are not that important to me.
I like the fact it has a aluminum base, and wieghts if I want to make it heavier.


So Im curious if anyone has one, or any experience with it can give a bit of persional input.


The other I was looking into was:
Newegg.com - Microsoft SideWinder X8 Black 12 Buttons Tilt Wheel 2.4GHz Wireless 4000 dpi Gaming Mouse


Anyway, just curious if anyone has a couple suggestions ot thoughts about these two.

Thanks.

I had a Saitek keyboard for years and years, and when it finally died, I took it apart and it's the most solidly built keyboard I have seen in a while. Good company.

Before you buy, try and hit up a Fry's. With mice, you really do need to put your hand on one to be sure it fits.

With the closest Fry's being in Indiana, I don't think that's an option.

But, it's a good idea to handle these things before you buy them. If you can't, I would suggest amazon.com to purchase from, since they don't have a restocking fee as of yet.

I agree best to actually get hands on but ..
Sadly, we have no Frys around here. The only thing I have close by is a Best Buy, and Walmart.

Was thinking since the RAT 5 was adjustable I may be able to adjust it if needed to fit my preference.

Might be best just to shop for something entirely different at the local Best Buy.


Just noticed you post LiquidSnak Yea, Im near Portsmoth OH, little over 2hrs from Cincy.
