hey can anyone reccommend a good gaming mouse? ive checked out the Razer gaming mice online and they look pretty sweet. I was thinking of getting a Razer Copperhead or a Monster Gecko Pistol Mouse (which is supposed to be good for FPS).

The Razor Copperhead is a very good mouse, I would also reccomend you get the Razor mouse mat (£15.00) its got two sides one smooth and one the other rough for different types of gameplay.

I wouldn't spend more than £20 on a mouse, I mean come on; but the Razer gaming mice are good, i've tried one, and you don't need better, great value if you drop it somehow too.

Thanks guys, I'll probably get the Copperhead - btw, is that the metal mousemat, or the cloth one?

If your going to spend that money on a Gaming Mouse, you might as well get a Gaming Mouse Mat.
The eXact Mat is double-sided, exactly like the popular fUnc 1030 Surface with one side smooth, and the other side rough. On each of the four corners is a rubbery-foam pad that sticks the pad to your desk, and does not let it slip.



The company is also quite interesting...
The Razer Corporation was formed in the mid to late 90's. Their main focus is to produce the highest quality precision gaming peripherals made. Their first marketed product was the now famous Razer Boomslang gaming mouse. A mouse that offered up to 2000 DPI while all other gaming mice were still stuck in the 400 DPI area. Since the Boomslang, Razer has produced the Viper, Diamondback and Copperhead gaming mice along with the Exact Mat, a dual sided anodized aluminum mousing surface. Future products to be released are the Tarantula Gaming Keyboard and the Barracuda Gaming Audio System.

I use a MX510 and a Razer Exactmat comfort (with handpad)

Excellent combination, and the MX510 isn't very expensive anymore, yet an excellent mouse!

those things are expensive. who would spend that kinda money on a mouse just for gaming  when a normal mouse will do just fine. all I use is a corded radioshack optical scroll mouse and a normal mouse pad. it only costed 20 dollars for the mouse.

I use the Dell mouse (two-button, scroll-wheel with a ball - not optical) that came with my PC and I can still own on CS and FPS games (where having a better mouse can make a big difference).

As I said, I use MX510 (45€ by the time I bought it, now 35), and Razer ExactMat (40€, with gel handpad)

I can only suggest those for any professional gamers, maybe even get the latest version of the MX series, the G9!

Yeah Im looking for a good quality solid corded opitical mouse. This Radio Shack One is being kinda crappy now. I can't really afford anything like a razor they are like 70 bucks here in the usa. I was looking at walmart.com and bestbuy and saw few interesting ones. I had a wireless one but those are a pain in the ass.

Is it a bad thing that my mouse rattles when I shake it? Well, at least it's a corded optical, I've had it for ages :p and my mousemat consists of a wad of paper held down by the keyboard which usually has lots of notes written all over it

Wow that keyboard is pretty cool and so is that blue mouse on there. I really would not go much more then $20.00 USA on a mouse though.
