Default Best Gaming Mouse?

I have a Microsoft wireless photo keyboard/mouse combo that my parents got me for Christmas, but sometimes, the mouse doesnt detect the click. Really annoying when sniping.

Anyways, i want the absolute best gaming mouse out there. wired or wireless, whichever you feel is better. Price is not a factor, as long as its under $100, and i havent seen to many mouses over that.

Its got to glide smooth, high whatever rate, low latency, ect.

Logitech G5 or MX518. Personal preference. For a wired mouse, that is.

Razors are the best gaming mice out there, i dont think there is another company out there that has a higher dpi then them.

wireless sucks for gaming also as you can tell.

Meh. I guess. But it's not for me. That sucker's expensive.
Watch out. The gold- and diamond-plated edition is over $100.

Heheheh. I am a lefty. I've conformed to those evil right-handed people standards.

Of course, firearms are a different story. Most are OK, but Steyr Augs throw burning hot shells against my arm. Not fun.

I rather like the logitech G7. Its the wireless I use at work. THe option to switch the cursor speed at a button touch is really nice for FPSer's
