    I have no idea. I would assume any optical mouse with a scroll is fine. Extra buttons couldnt hurt for gaming.

    Personally, I like mine, it's an IBM model MO27FO. USB, optical, and the scroll has a blue LED inside, and there's a thumb-button as well. It's quite comfortable, for me at least.

    The best mouse looks like a trackball for any purpose.

    It depends on what kind of surface you're using. Personally, I prefer a mousepad, my optical mouse doesn't work as well without one.

    The trackballs I've seen haven't been too good. My friend has an old one, I guess, because it wasn't too accurate on-screen. I don't know if I could always use just my thumb to move, I prefer using the whole hand.

    i have a new logitech trackball and it pisses me off. the thumb thing is annoying so i dont use it. if i dont use a mousepad for my optical my hand gets all stiff from my desk.

    Best mouse in the world ^^ I've had mine for almost a year and it is starting to die. Malfunctioning on boot and dropping during games :( :( Do you have any idea where I can buy another one?

    Hey, this malunctioning on boot....how does it happen?

    I'm not sure if this is my motherboard or the mouse, but it started when I got the motherboard... Whenever I turn on the computer, the mouse won't turn on right away. I have to unplug the USB cable and plug it in again for it to turn on, sometimes a few times. Does that happen to you?

    I got mine at Best Buy about a year ago, and I checked their site, and they have it listed here. Good luck :)

    Yep that is EXACTLY what happens. It happened with my old MSI kt3 mobo, and now with my new 8rda+. This is the BEST feeling mouse in the world however. BTW - did your "slip" guides on the bottom fall off in a sticky mess? I had to *pirate* :) some from another mouse.

    It worked on my MSI kt4 mobo, but it does that thing on my 8rda+ now.

    And no, they haven't fallen off....yet...but I'll watch for it.


    This is the best mouse ever...its so freakin' comfortable. Anyone who hasn't used it should go get one now, you'll be completely amazed.
