Hey guys. Looking for a decent gaming mouse ($50 or under) and a gamepad to go with my new computer build.

The gamepad will be for fighting games and sports (ie. SSF4, soccer games). The mouse will be for RTS and FPS mostly I guess. Nothing too fancy, it doesn't have to have 10 programmable buttons.

These are in stock in my area and I'm considering them. What do you guys think?

Gamepad:

Logitech Dual Action Gamepad - $24

Mice:

Razer Abyssus Gaming Mouse - $50

Logitech Corded Mouse M500 - $50

Microsoft Habu Gaming Mouse - $45

P.S. Does a good mousepad make a big difference? If so, could someone suggest one for $20 or under?

Thanks,

Chris

I like the gamepad. I have the wireless version and does great from me when I play Assasins Creed I & II.

I would go with the Razer mouse over the other two. It is the better mouse... IMO

A gaming pad will help with the responsivness of your mouse but a standard good mouse pad will get the job done. I don't see major need to purchase one.

Yes a decent mouse pad is a good idea and saves the feet too.
Start with one of these SteelSeries QcK (12.6" x 11.2") Medium-Sized Cloth Gaming Mouse Pad- a good size and quality for the price/i'm using one now

Even if it is Free do not fall for the Logitech G5 or its ugly stepsister the G500.

I agree with Davcon. I've been using the Razer Deathadder for months and it is great. Responsiveness, build quality, drivers... all good... plus the blue pulsating led is a nice touch. Amazon also has it for $50, and I don't think there's any tax.
