Default Logitech MX518 users, what settings?

What do you think are the best settings for this mouse?

I just recieved it, and been having some interesting shooting on CSS, but I can see that there will be a huge improvement in my playing going from a cheap opticle mouse that didn't always track properly. Right now I have it on the full 1600dpi, pointer acceleration on low and on the third line for pointer speed.

I went from a DELL opticle mouse (it was donated to me as my other mouse didn't work.) and I couldn't do a smooth curve in photoshop, and now I can, so I think that says enough to justify £30 +11 for the mat, which makes it feel like it is on air.

My CS skills are sort of all over the place still as I haven't got used to it, but it is showing hope.

I set my DPI to 1600 all the time, but keep the sensitivity on the 3rd or 4th level.

The reason I do it the way I do, is so I have super accuracy, and can rely on the mouse, but at the same time, it's not so sensitive that my hand won't screw it up.
