Default Gaming mouse?

Hey Guys,

Got my rig just about set up and now looking for a wireless mouse, I am a coder aswell as a gamer on a budget of £40.

Any advice?

the people i know who own wireless mice are frustrated with them, they need regularly recharged etc. i would get a USB wired one.

I have the Logitech MX518 and its fantastic.

get the logitech mx518 or g5. stay away from wireless for gaming. Used the razorback its ok but I do not like the position of the side buttons. they are too easily pressed.

After owning a wireless for many years i didnt think i could go back to wired, however ive just bought a G5 and i dont even notice the cord!
I highly recommend the G5, its the best mouse i've ever used by far!

If you want wireless, get the Logitech G7. It's supposed to have very good response times, with no lag.
