Need a New Mouse!

Hello TomsHardWareCommunity!

I pose a challenge to anyone good with choosing mice! I had used my Dell mouse for many years and it was getting old so I bought myself a Logitech G9x - I HATE this mouse with passion. It is so fat and short and it doesn't fit my hand at all! I am strictly an FPS gamer however a side-button to turn Fraps on/off would be nice :D . What I am looking for is a mouse with:

- 600-2000 DPI
- Something that is narrower and longer then the G9x...
- Something similar to a Dell Mouse (Long, narrow, black ones, you know right?)
- Something that will work in an FPS!
- I am a quick-scoper so easy push buttons would be nice too haha. :D 
- I use a Steelseries 9HD no-friction mouse pad!

Right now I was looking at the Logitech Mx518 - if anyone owns this mouse can you please post about its dimensions and overall feel?

Thank you all very much!

I've used a mx518 and I wasnt a huge fan , the buttons felt plasticy to me the best logitech mouse ive used is an old mx620 but there rare as hens teeth now and when mine goes ( its my work mouse at the moment ) I'll be rather sad .

For gaming use I'm Very fond of a relatively new Gaming brand known as Mionix , there a company from Sweden im incredibley fond of their Naos 5000 , it really melds to my quite large paws , and if the rest of there range live up to the same quality it'd be worth checking out .

Dont know where your based but if its europe remeber you have the right to return a product for any reason " At all" in the first 30 days under the distance selling regulations so buying a mouse online , trying it and sending it back if its not for your needs .. is only as hard as not destroying the packaging too much and paying a few pounds / euro for return shipping some even do this for free .

The best choice for ergonomycs out there is of course the SteelSeries Ikari laser mouse it has 3200DPI and for me its better than any other razer mices ;) 
Its around 80€ but its worth it, i use it for 2 years now and im very satisfied with it...im using it 6 hours a day xD it never dissapoints me!

I had a logitech G9X and it caused horrible hand pain (probably because its too small for my hand), so I replaced it and got the much larger G700.

G9X is a great mouse, but my wrist and outer rim of my hand hurt extremely bad after using it for more than 5minutes.

Alright some very interesting responses - thank you! I live in Canada for reference. I don't think I'll order a mouse on line as I want to try it in my hand before purchase :o
