Default Looking for a nice gaming mouse

im looking for nice gaming mouse. for around 50-70 dollars. i dont want wireless, sense my wireless mouse sucks, and i cant freakin play any FPS without spinning around in circles looking at the sky. i was looking at the mx510, mx518, or the mx1000. tough choices i know the mx1000 is cordless, but the reviews make it seem good

im also looking at the G5 also. only 55 dollars?

Logitech really screwed up with the G5, they removed 2 buttons, so it only has 5 now, compared to 8 on the MX518 and 7 on the copperhead. I think I like the copperhead a little better. Also, stay away from cordless, no matter what any review says.

Aren't the Razer Copperhead's buttons placed too awkwardly though?

I own a diamondback plasma, and it has the same button layout as the copperhead I think, and it's fine for me. I think I read that the layout of the copperhead was actually improved a little however.

It's not a cheap mouse. But it sure does deliver.

I love my 510 buddy, I would suggest you get the 518.
