    I recently bought an ASUS G75 gaming notebook, which is great, and I'm currently using a Logitech M510 usb wireless mouse. I play mostly FPS and it has enough buttons for me, the problem is aiming accuracy when shooting, especially at moving targets. I've tried playing around with the sensitivity, turning smoothing on and off, but it doesn't seem to help. (Maybe I'm just uncoordinated.)

    Would a gaming mouse help with this kind of issue? If so, I'd appreciate some recommendations. I'd definitely prefer wireless, especially bluetooth, since the G75 has that built-in. I don't mind paying up if it's a good product and will solve my movement/accuracy issues. Thanks much.

    For me, I prefer the G-Series of gaming mice from Logitech. I use it on my Samsung Series 7 (which replaced my Asus G73). Currently, I use a G600 MMO (wired) and a G700 (wireless). The G700 works as wired or wireless, but the battery life isn't that great.

    Any of the RAT series would suit you I think- they have a thumb button that reduces dpi when pressed, so you can get that tweak when you need it.

    Generally, best way to go is to get a fairly low dps and as much mouse mat as you can- gives you the room to move, and the acccuracy when you need it.

    Also- if you want to go gaming, forget the wireless. Its slower (not much, but enough) and any interference from other devices (yours or someone else's) can cause probs too.

    ^ That is subjective.

    Gaming mice are best suited for twitch gaming (FPS, RTS, etc.) Most other games a run-of-the-mill USB mouse is sufficient to remain competitive and fun. (Although having multiple macros at your disposal is great for MMORPGs).

    So, what exactly is your accuracy problem? Do you find yourself slow & trailing behind, or do you find it too fast and you bounce all over the place? If it's too fast, simply lowering mouse movement speed in increments should help. If it's too slow, a gaming mouse could solve the issue provided the issue isn't related to latency. Like Gulo above, I'm a fan of the R.A.T. design.

    Have you disabled mouse acceleration? Also if you have adjusted your mouse sensitivity in windows mouse options revert the changes. Increasing that casues your mouse to skip pixels (if I recall)

    A gaming mouse is really good, allows for much more control. Im a razer person myself :)
