Default Mouse for gaming.

Gaming forum or Hardware forum??? Ahh… Hardware it is.

I am looking to replace my MS Trackball with a good mouse for gaming. The last few weeks in UT 2K4 have shown my old trackball hasn’t got what it takes. What is the best mouse for gaming at the moment; I have heard good things about the Logitec MX700.

Depends on what youre looking for. Buttons? Support? Resolution? Looks?

I use the MX700 and its great. Covers most of those bases VERY well.

The new kid on the block is the Razer Viper (no I didnt misspell it). Has 25-150% more optical resolution than other mice. "High precision"....

In UT, buttons are good, so that would be important, more so than an insane DPI. (Is the MX700 800 DPI?)

Ok, I think the MX700 has my vote, is there a mousemat that is better than others. Is choice of mousemat for an optical mouse even important?

I like the MX700. I own one. There is a fanatical fan base for the Razer products but it's got some quirks that makes the reviewers pan it.
