Since when do all gaming mouses cost $60?

I bought my copperhead for $25 plus shipping, and it really does make a world of difference compared to a regular mouse.

I have big hands, so a larger mouse is easier for me to control.

I use a Saitek gaming keyboard, and a Logitech laser mouse from Best Buy. I love it. Wouldn't want anything more.

all the extra buttons on gaming mouses and keyboards just get really annoying, and in the way.
