    I've held off getting a new mouse for a while now so now i want to get a new one

    As far as mice go, I know that higher dpi is better but how much dpi do i really need for games and typical computer use?

    and should i go wireless or corded?

    Any suggestions for a mouse ~$40? Links?

    i would prefer it if the mouse was available from http://www.jr.com/JRSectionView.process?N=12250&Ne=10000

    or best buy/circuit city

    edit: I think this is in the wrong place, can the mods move it for me?

    Get one of these, they look pretty comfy [​IMG]

    But anyway, I would prefer either a Microsoft or Logitech brand mouse. If you're not really into PC games[especially FPSs] you won't need that much dpi at all.

    I hate cordless mice. IMO its just one more thing to go wrong. I use a Logitech G5 mouse [​IMG] Very nice, precise. Before I had the MX518 before which was also good, and costs less.

    Screw what others say, get a Spongebob Mouse thats like 10$!

    http://www.amazon.com/ACP-KM009-02-1-Spong...e/dp/B00025YP9U

    Wait! It's 7$

    Comments from me: Yup, I use this mouse! Honestly I don't know where I got it from but it's way cooler then those MX 35UDS thingys.


    EDIT: I forgot to put this in but...If you don't like the Spongebob I suggest a LogiTech mouse

    That's terrible [​IMG]

    I don't think I could use a computer knowing I had my hands all over Spongebob...

    Edit: Agh. I got off topic again. Anywho, I gots me a Toronto Maple Leafs branded mouse which works great in FPS's. It fits right into my hand (I gots big meaty hands) and the buttons feel great. Also there is a small compartment on the back which lights up blue and is filled with water and a small hockey puck. Flashing lights = Priceless.

    Logitech MX400. Best mouse I've ever seen, held, or used. Just the right amount of buttons. I think I got it for $35 on Newegg.com, but it's probably dropped since then.
