Default Looking for a gaming mouse.

Something reliable, stylish, at least 4000dpi, and cheap.

I just want to move on from my Orochi. It's not what I need these days.

Well, 400 DPI short. But I recommend this nonetheless.
Amazon.com: Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse G400 with High-Precision 3600 DPI Optical Engine (910-002277): Electronics

I like my Razer Naga Molten a good deal too, but... I wouldn't have bought it at full price. I got it during the half off sale.

How cheap is cheap? What is your grip style? I suggest just going to Horrible Buy, Fry's, or MC and getting a feel for a ton of mice.

I'm a fingertip arched palm kind of person. I use my wrist and bottom of my palm for support on the mat usually. I love the Orochi for this reason but wear and button size is getting me to want a new one. Cheap is not paying 70 I suppose. I like the linked Logitech, but they're big.

But yeah, I may go to Fry's and just aim for what's comfortable.

Any mouse is going to seem big when you've been using a laptop mouse.
Sounds like you have a claw grip. Razer mice are better suited for that grip style. Logitech mice are more palm which is why they are larger and arched more.

Yeah, I'd never use the Orochi as my primary mouse. I do like the dual wired / wireless... I keep it around for my MBA.

Not cheap, but I think it fits your description quite nicely.\Razer Imperator Gaming Mice - Ergonomic Mouse for Gaming - Razer United States

If you really want cheap, google "Blu-ray Ultimate USB 6D Button Professional Optical Gaming Mouse"

It's under $20, and probably the best kept secret regarding gaming mice because it's imported. I have one myself and can attest that it get's the job done, especially for the price.

That's actually really interesting. I'm kinda tempted to give it a shot just because for $9 on Amazon, the worse case scenario is I don't like it and it replaces my fiance's old mx500.

Sad part is, generally cheap computer pieces are extremely cheap.
