Best fans you can buy are the Scythe SFlex Petra's Tech Shop stocks em. They are a bit pricey but they have the best bearings you can get and are thus quiet as ****.

Otherwise you can look at the Yate Loon SL fans which for 4 cost the same as one SFLEX.

Scythe S-Flex 120mm Fan - Ultra High Speed (SFF21G)

This one? I also found the yate loon for 5 bucks -.- not exactly expensive

So what about the gaming mouse is it a good deal?

Thats what I was saying, the Yate Loons are very affordable, but offer excellent bang for buck.

Mouse is garbage. I think I had the displeasure of using one once. Hated it.

Petra's Tech Shop

Best deal in town in terms of fans...

What did you hate about that mouse?

So can you recommend me one around that same price?

Well it should still be better than a microsoft wireless optical mouse 2.0 lol (right?)

It felt chintzy, cheap plastic, optical sensor wasn't terribly amazing...

Tho I have been spoiled by 4 different Razer mice, and a G7.

Worse


Check the MX518 or the G5, but just get an Optical Mouse and you're set

I'm using a Ball Mouse and I can still do decently in COD4 with my AK47 and Stopping Power, but I get owned from the rear a lot though... I guess a gaming mouse could fix that

Can you guys please explain in detail why it is so bad? For that price, I just love it.

As long as it works and actually gives me that 2100 dpi and all set. Dont really care for anything else

If you are definitely set on that.. why are you asking for our opinions on it?

No, I am not set, but the thing is you guys are just giving physical things.

I want to know if it will WORK, not the physical.

I actually ordered the razer death adder, but man its been on hold for 2 weeks. I even called them and they just told me to wait. So screw that, I am asking for a refund today.
This is just crazy..... (the mouse costed me 52 bucks with shipping and tax.)

And this one is going for like 36 with shipping and tax.
