Hey guys, i just finished my building my computer a couple weeks ago, and this wireless $20 microsoft mouse i got for my laptop 2 years ago just sucks when i play games, and just in general. Can you guys make some recommendations on mice? Id like a nice gaming one with all the extra buttons and stuff, but id really like to keep it under $40ish maybe 50? I really would like it to be wired. What kinda stuff should i consider when buying one?

Maybe the best option in your price range is the Logitech MX 518 8 buttons and 1 wheel.
The mouse software is also pretty good for building custom button profiles.

mx518 or g5 should both be fine and fit in your budget, tests have shown that the g5 actually have worse tracking than the mx518, but I prefer the feet much better, I've had my g5 for about 3 years and never had a problem.

I love my G5 but a mouse is something you should ideally try before you buy!

I own a MX-518 and a Razer DeathAdder both are very good.
A word of advice buy a wired mouse for gaming.
I agree with the above poster go to a store where you can put your hand on them.

I too would recommend the Logitech MX 518.. That's the only component which has not found any need or reason to be upgraded from past 5 years.. The Razer DeathAdder is a comparative performer but it comes with a slightly higher price tag and unlike the 518, it does not feature the on the fly sensitivity change which is a very very useful feature (especially for FPS players).. Additionally, the 518 is a high quality build (like all logitech products are), is very comfortable and looks good also..

Thanks for all the replies guys. I decided to go to best buy and try some out, and found the mx 518 there which was pretty nice, but they tried to sell it to me for $65?!?!?! But i found it on newegg for $36.
