    It really depends on each individual ... we all like different "mouse feel" really ...
    A couple of suggestions tho:
    -Take a corded mouse, its lighter and you never get out of battery in the middle of a fight ;)
    -Also choose carefully a good mouse-pad, it's very important as well
    -You don't need to go to the expensive gamer brands, you can get quality from Logitech or Microsoft as well... so don't be ashamed of taking a combo keyboard+mouse from these brands
    -Depending on what games you are in, you will need more or less buttons on the mouse - some people don't like too many buttons on the mouse so really make sure not to get a mouse that will annoy you on the long run (too many buttons often means that you click on some of them by mistake)

    Personally I have a Logitech combo with 3 additional buttons on the mouse and a steelseries mouse-pad and im very happy with all that.

    Thanks so much! I was wondering if I should spend a lot of money on a mouse and keyboard because one of my friends bought a mouse (Yes, just a mouse) for $90.00! I figured that was a bit over the top and now I know that it's perfectly fine to get a "cheap" mouse.

    To chime in on what vratchek said, I have a Razer mouse that I bought way back when. It comes with the Razer software to let you customize the dpi and all that crap. I turn it down to the lowest setting, I'm not even making good use of the higher dpi settings. Paying all that extra money for nothing! :) Don't get me wrong, the Lachesis--no longer in production--is a good mouse. I just feel it wasn't worth it for my use. I like to keep the mouse simple. I keep hitting the extra buttons, had to unmap them so that it didn't keep changing the dpi on the fly.

    I would've been better off getting a cheaper microsoft/logitech mouse! :)
