    Will there be any issues if I use my Razer Deathadder and Logitech G500's drive together? I'll have both mouse plugged in and both mouses will have their own drivers.

    I know that it'll have one pointer on the screen but I use one mouse for fps and the other for all other needs.

    Personnally, i'd stick with 1 only to avoid driver confusion and stupidness.

    Well if it works like a laptop with touchpad enabled + usb mouse, then just use the one you want and Windows (at least Vista and 7 in my experience) will detect and use the one you're moving/clicking with. May require a click of a button, but it "should" work I would imagine. Though I use my good ol' G5 for everything, I really see no reason to have 2 mice...though I have 3 DPI settings that I abuse the hell out of now and that would be a good reason if you can't on the fly. Give it a shot, the worst that happens is you can only use one at a time.

    I have a razer lachesis and a logitech g9, no problems with the drivers.
