I am using The Microsoft Opticle Wireless mouse in my games and i find its not very acurate. anybody got any recomendations?
I was thinking about the Logitech MX518 Gaming Grade Optical Mouse
or something along those lines.
I would prefere to use wireless but not sure if thats the gaming way if you know what i mean.

I have the razer Diamonback, let me tell you this thing is nuts on speed, it takes time to get use to but i do very well in bf2 and css and its usb for 50 bucks.

i think its about power consumption.. the wirelsss mouse that uses the two rechargable batteries should work okay.. most wireless mice try too hard to make their batteries last for several weeks.. i have an old rechargable one that runs its batteries down in less than a day but it seems to work far better than all the other wireless mice i have tried..

I'm using a Logitech MX1000...it's an incredible mouse. I upgraded from the same mouse you had, and it was so different at first that I really sucked at CS:S...once I got used to it I was better than before.

Any mouse with 2000 or 2500 dpi optical laser should be ok.

The Razer Copperhead guys!!! Why didn't anyone mention that one? Yeah the drivers and software suck for it (and I mean BAD, it doesn't even recognize the mouse half the time), but it runs like any other mouse plus has 7 buttons and you can use them to change DPI on the go which is GREAT for when you want to turn around really fast in a game to shoot someone behind you or want to be really accurate with a sniper and no sudden movements in games. It's a 2000dpi lazer than can be tuned from 400dpi to 2000dpi. Plus it's the best looking mouse I've ever seen (other than the blue Diamondback), with "light pipes" and the pulsating logo of Razer on the back. It's not wireless though, that's the only problem

Logitech MX518! You also can change the dpi to 400,800,1600.

Yeah I got the 518 a coupla months ago, it's real good, you can have five different reolutions 400 <> 1600, sniping has gotten sooo much better for me.

I have a mx1000 high precision, but to heavy for most people

Razer Copperhead. Sorry but I gotta let people know about it, I mean Logitech is not strictly a mouse company like Razer.

I got the mx518 3 weeks ago :P an I think it's is a very good mouse :P but you have to be right handed to use it :P

i have the 518 also but do not use the software. its just bloatware. it works the same but you cant set custom dpi's which isnt even true anyway as it just resets the mouse speed to compensate. i always keep mine on 800dpi and then switch down or up when i need to. oh and ppl the diamonbacks 7 buttons are realy 5 as u cant hit the other 2 bottuns with ur pinkie. it just doesnt work. search MX518, RAZOR DIAMONDBACK, and REVIEWS and u will get a few comparisons. from what i remember they all favored the 518 but its only right handed (hell even left handed gamers use right handed mice). the only down side i have with the 518 is the shiney surface collects gunk and whatnot but u just have to wipe it off.
oh and AMDCam you forget that many copmanies make different things. like cannon printers and cameras..
