Default New Mouse

I'm looking into getting a new gaming mouse because mine is starting to show some age. I've looked into Razer ones and the two that fit my budget are the DeathAdder and the Imperator 2012.

My friend has a DeathAdder which I used and I found it to be quite comfortable, however the Imperator has almost twice the DPI (6400 instead of 3500), two more buttons, and the side buttons are adjustable. Does anyone have any experience with these mice? Right now it's a toss up between the two and I don't know which one to get =\

Between those I would choose the Imperator if it were me. I really like my Mionix Naos but it is about $25 more than the Imperator.

Be sure to get a quality mousing surface. I liked my old eXactMat, but I sold it when I got the Mionix Propus 380.
