'Gamer Mouse' I need advice please

Likes # 0

Hi

I normally play games through xBox, using a wireless xBox controller. The latter part of next year 'Skyrim Online' is going to be launched. However, apparently it can only be played via a PC and using a mouse. I've had a look at a few Gamer Mouse types, ranging from £10 - £100. The basic looks like a regular mouse, but there are others with all manner of key pads and other add-ons.

I am at a loss as to which to choose, advice please.

I have also been looking at these gaming mouses and they are not necessary but they can give you a big advantage when playing these games. Also having a good gaming mouse mat can help. If you are going to buy one how much will you be spending.

Well that's it isn't it, as little as possible I guess. Although even at the lower end of the market £8.49 I can get an E-Blue Cobra 600 to 1600 DPI adjustable gaming mouse, with 6 buttons. I see you're intending to splash the cash on a new rig at xmas and are going with the mouse that comes as part of the package. Are you not considering upgrading the mouse?

I was intending to play on my samsung smart tv. But I'm now wondering if it has the spec to play these sort of games? Then I thought about hooking a laptop up to the tv. But I think that will have the same problem, basic graphics card. It's looking increasingly like I'll be playing on my PC. But without the 42 inch tv, my pc screen is 21 inch, but I still have another tv, the one I replaced with the samsung that's a 32 inch screen.

I built my rig last year at PC Specialists, it took a lot of juggling to get it to come in at £500. I went with the onboard soundcard, because the PC it was replacing had 4 speakers and sub woofer. My graphics card is an nVidia GeForce.

I've tried various one's. But one I have now is the Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0.

You wont go far wrong with this one.

Hi ordep

Well, my regular mouse is a Logitech, which I too am happy with. However, It's a 'gaming mouse' that I'm looking for advice on, for online gaming. I think it needs at least 6 buttons and a DPI changer from 600 to something like 2400 dpi.

I swear by Logitech's MX518 and I also have a Mionix Naos 3200 and both are comfortable to use for long periods. On both these mice I have replaces the feet to make them glide more smoothly on my Zowie Swift Black mousemat.

I have never gone for a mouse with a load of buttons as I find I never use them. Of the two mentioned above the MX518 is slightly ahead as a recommendation. Review.

Hi Chronos the 2nd

I've just checked out the 'Review' you provided. On the face of it, the 'Logitech MX518' sounds fairly basic to me. but with a higher price tag than I wanted to go to. Although, I too would prefer a small mouse, so that I can change the way I use it, to try and keep RSI at bay. It may be perceived as a frivolity; but I would never-the-less like a little bling, by way of a few blue led lights along the sides.

What about a DPI changer?

What about a DPI changer?

Never felt the need to do it to be honest.

But how about this for a bit of bling? For a mousemat this is pretty cool.

By the way what is your budget for a mouse?

What about a DPI changer!

It's my opinion that this function is by way of a necessity for me. As my PCA name implies, I'm all about graphics and as such, being able to correct the DPI would enhance my pleasure. As, on the other hand not being able to, would decrease it.

As for your link...overkill! A little fuzzy blue glow down the sides is one thing. However, that would reflect in the monitor and positively be a spoiler!

My budget, I wouldn't really want to go above £25.

How does this sound at £13.99 post inc...
