Default Mousepad

I was just wondering how important a mousepad is. Are they mouse pads that you can buy that will make the mouse work better or that or better for gaming? Just a curious questions, because sometimes the mouse on my current computer will start going all over the place on the screen and Im thinking its because of this crappy mousepad I have.

yeah believe it or not some people take the mousepad pretty seriously. If you are an extreme gamer, then you should probably invest in mousepads with specialized surfaces for optical/laser mouses. I think popular mousepads with gamers are IceMats, fUnc pads (im getting one of htese myself), rat padz and steelmats ? im not that serious with it. those premium pads i listed above usually run from 20 to 30 bucks

Yeah once I get more money Im planning on buying a good one, for now I just orderd a keyboard and mouse combo. But If a mousepad makes a diffrence I want to get a really ncie one to. Im planning on playing some RTS games and FPS games so the mouse is important.
