Gaming mouse suggestions

Hello people

Recently, I've been thinking to buy a new gaming mouse. My current mouse is some-cheap 10$ one.

I'm looking for suggestions, thanks in advance.

  1. First, watch this video.
    Before you do, look at your hand and take notice of how you are holding your mouse.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luCxbVslSFM

    From there, each mouse manufacturer will somewhat split their lineups into the different grips, find out which you are and look into them. Razer, Steelseries, Logitech, Coolermaster and Thermaltake are some big names in peripherals and are where I would start looking. Find one that suits your grip and has features you want (bajillion thumb buttons for MMO gaming, lighting because its cool, high DPI for twitch shooters, etc).
    I personally use a Razer Deathadder 2013 and love the thing.

    Everywhere I go I read good reviews about Razer Deathadder, so I decided to pick this one http://www.e-shop.gr/product?id=PER.573157 you mean this, right?
  3. Thats the one I use yep.
    I find its good for my hybrid palm/claw grip.

    Thanks for replying on my thread and helping me out, I appreciate that!

    I know its a bit off, but do you have to suggest any gaming keyboard? I just didn't want to open another thread for that.
  5. i wouldnt recomend the razer deathadder ive heard its coating makes your palm really sweaty but that depends on the person i guess and razer is know for sub-par build quality. if your looking for an fps mouse the rat 7 or corsair m65 are good choices. Also if your on a more slightly more modest budget then the logitech g500 has a legendary rep.
  6. for a keyboard depends on what your playing do you need lots of macros for in game commands or a mechanical keyboard for faster reactions and a nicer typing experience?

    Both if possible but I prefer mostly "a mechanical keyboard for faster reactions and a nicer typing experience?".
  8. I have razer deathadder respawn mouse and I absolutely love it. My keyboard is razer blackwidow ultimate edition 2013 mechanical keyboard, I absolutely love that too. :)
  9. Mechanical keyboards, decide which switch you want and find a keyboard that fits your budget and feature choice.
    Big names in mechanical keyboards are Coolermaster, Ducky (what I use, a Shine II), Steelseries, Filco, Das.
  10. I decided to go for this keyboard - http://www.e-shop.gr/product?id=PER.549484

    there is also something else that I need to know before buying

    System requirements
    PC with high power USB 2.0 port (+500mA)

    How do I know about that? I have no idea how to check that.
  11. Typically that means the keyboard has its own USB ports, which are often very voltage limited and hence it would want to be on a more powerful USb port to begin with. However the K95 doesn't have any USB ports, as far as I can tell there's nothing on it that should really suck down any power that a typical keyboard wouldn't. I think you will be fine.

    Have you decided on which Cherry MX switch to go for?

    Not yet, although I've already read some articles about this. yet I have no idea which of them I should buy. I'll make sure to choose the best. If you have any recommendation, feel free to share it.
  13. Best answer
    Each switch has different properties, so its not a matter of which is "best" but which suits what your doing with the keyboard. I use MX Brown switches since I want a good typing experience but not necessarily be as loud as a Blue. If gaming is a priority, you might want a Red switch, if fast typing is utmost then you will want Blues for that audio feedback on the actuation point.

    TBH, no idea why anyone would get a Black switch.
  14. Thanks for the great help dude. I guess I'm done with this thread now. All my questions are answered.

    There's still one of my threads pending - http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1805228/opinions.html
