Default What effects a mouse's performance?

I have a Microsoft Intellimouse Optical with a refresh rate or 6000 images/sec and a resolution of 400 cpi. I'm thinking of betting a Logitech Cordless Click Plus which has a refresh rate of only 2000 images/sec but a resolution of 800 cpi. Assuming the lag from the wireless connection of the Logitech is negligable, which mouse would give me better precision? Should I stick with the Microsoft with a higher refresh rate or would I get better precision with a higher resolution from the Logitech and sacrifice refresh rate? I plan on using it for everthing from office apps to gaming (UT2004, SC, etc)?

I wouldnt waste your money on a new mouse since your current mouse seems to be good. Yuo buying the second mouse in my opinion is not worth the money youll pay for it.

I wouldnt get a wireless mouse if i were you.
If you want reliablility, go with a wired mouse.

If you are a gamer then you want reliability and accuracy in a mouse. You want to have the least amount of maintenence and still want to own a product that will last you for years.
Stay with a wired optical mouse from either microsoft or logitech.
You have to clean the feet every now and then but aside from that....100% accuracy. A wireless mouse fades in performance when the battereies start to die. You really wants to change the batteries in their mouse while hunting down someone in UT????
Not me....

I would get the Razer Diamondback and a decent mouse mat.
