Default new mouse?

My dell ball mouse is starting to die sadly, they scroll wheel doesnt work anymore, and the ball is actually starting to not be a sphere anymore, so im looking for a mouse any where from $10-$25, doesnt have to be a gaming mouse but i would like it to be. Can be either usb or ps2

That's probably the best you're gonna do. Although I love my Logitec MX518... I'm truely in love with it. I go and use some of the Dells on campus and try to hit the 'back' button, but there isn't one... so frustrating.

Get a Logitech G5 or G7. Both are great mice.

That would be the best one you can buy for the budget I'd say.
