Default Optical Mice

I'm looking for an optical mouse in the 20-30 dollar range. I game frequently but not competitively. Does anyone have any suggestions? It doesn't matter to me if it's wireless or not, just as long as it works and won't break after a month.

Optical mouses aren't that expensive. I ee them for like $10 all the time.

I know this one is a bit out of your price range but if you can afford it, you'll love it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826104178

This is what i have. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826105185
I game almost everyday and this mouse is great. It might not have the best specs, but it gets the job done.

The Logitech Bluetooths aren't that expensive, are they? More than $20-30 I'm sure, but not by much.
