Default Gaming Mouse

I am looking to getting a new gaming mouse. I currently have a Logitech G5 v2. As I am left handed, I am looking at a mouse left hand orientated or for both hands. I have looked at Razer, but they are too expensive for my needs. There is not much Logitech Gaming Mice for both hands.

I did however look at this one:

Micro Center - Microsoft Sidewinder X3 UUC-00001

I don't need a whole mess of buttons, but one or two on the side is all I am looking for. I currently play SC2. The button I currently mark to the side button is Shift. I'm looking around the range of the above, nothing above ~$40.

Cheaper on newegg but indeed it appears to be the best sub-$40 mouse.
Newegg.com - Microsoft SideWinder X3 Black 5 Buttons USB Wired Laser 2000 dpi Mouse

It's too bad Razer is so expensive but they're supposed to be the best.
I get my Razer on Wednesday so I sure hope it was worth the price tag. I'll be sure to post my thoughts.

Thanks. I have a discontinued Bluetooth Razer mouse off of Woot maybe a year ago. Not even mention on Razer's site.

Yeah, noticed Newegg after I posted this :P

Have you looked at the SteelSeries mice? I haven't try them myself but we will be reviewing a few of them in the very near future.

They are quite beyond my reach. The Xia Laser is what'd I need, minimum. I'll be waiting for your review. I'm just considering atm.

Wow... MSRP $80? Sweet. I'm afraid I'll have to wait a few weeks until I can pay off my CC.

G.Skill Ripjaw, Xigmatek Dark Knight, CoolerMaster HAF. Banshee sounds like a good addition.
