Budget Gaming Mouse and Gamepad Tags: Homebuilt Gaming Mice Gamepad Systems Product Last response: October 10, 2010 7:02 AM in Systems Share mishimaBeef August 22, 2010 7:18:10 PM 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?

Thanks, Chris More about : budget gaming mouse gamepad tecmo34 a b B Homebuilt system a b 4 Gaming August 22, 2010 11:12:00 PM 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. davcon a b B Homebuilt system a b 4 Gaming August 22, 2010 11:45:01 PM Mouse-Razer DeathAdder 3500dpi 3.5G Infrared Sensor Gaming Mouse http://www1.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?item_i...

Yes a decent mouse pad is a good idea and saves the feet too.

G500 is trash. Deathadder baby. brandoncatz October 10, 2010 7:02:44 AM 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. http://www.amazon.com/Razer-Deathadder-Precision-Infrar... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
