I would have went with a MX518, and yes you did overpay. But the G5 is a good mouse.

i got it for $48 at newegg i think, works ok, in no way is it worth 50 i can just get a mouse for 25 and it will work fine, sure its faster and "acceleration" but i shouldnt of listened to m,y friend bug me on cause hes mad rich and his parents dont let him buy anything so he tells me what to get with no knowlege of how money works.

Well, that was a gross overprice, but be sure to tell us how you like it because I plan on getting a G7 soon.

And to vipercrazed: could you please do something about that signature? Reading your posts with all that flashing is aggravating and distracting.

You're not kidding. I hate when you move a mouse kinda quick in an FPS game with high sensitivity and the entire screen blurs and you lose direction and everything else :\.
