Good point. If you have the extra cash, get the G7.

I dont really like the g7, I was looking at it and it has 2 less buttons. Although the mx1000 has no dpi changer buttons... I can't decide now....

in my opinion, logitech did a great job losing the useless 2 buttons and increasing dpi..
its a pure gamer mouse. (or say, pure FPS mouse)
i have never used the top little button and the top thumb button. they r just very uncomfortable to reach. im pretty sure a lot of ppl here will agree w that.
have u tried this mouse before? its pretty big for ppl who has small hands.
i have been using MX500 (same shape but w/ those 2 extra useless buttons and less dpi) for quite a while. and i cant use any other shaped mouse now.
and the weight, my 1st impression about MX500 was..really heavy..
but G5 mouse (i own 1) is lighter than MX500 and comes w/ adjustable weights.
but i assume G7 is very heavy cuz of the battery...+ its wireless...i just had no luck getting any good wireless mice. i dont trust em. (although, apple bluetooth wireless keyboad is awesome. no delay at all.) so unless u play a game like wow that u want to use as many buttons on a mouse as possible, G5 mouse is recommended.
and also if ur hand is too small for this mouse, try rezor copperhead mouse. its smaller and great mouse (or at least thats what i heard...never actually used 1..)

I am looking to upgrade
________________________________________
I would like to upgrade my HP Digital Entertainment Center z540's video card. I simply would like to upgrade for a better gaming experience. The video card I am looking at is the eVGA e-GeForce 7800 GT CO 256MB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, VIVO. I have recently looked inside the z540 and it appears that this particular card will not fit, or will it? To me it doesn’t look like it will fit inside the computer, but that is my question...will it fit? Also if the card does not fit are there compact versions of the card on the market and if not, would it be possible to purchase a regular pc case and transfer my HP z540's components to that one?
