Best gaming mice

Craig was sucked into the endless vortex of tech at an early age, only to be spat back out babbling things like "phase-locked-loop crystal oscillators!". Mostly this receives a pat on the head from the listener, followed closely by a question about what laptop they should buy.

If every frag and frame counts, you need some serious gaming equipment.

From macros to on-the-fly DPI to storing configurations on the device itself, the mouse is arguably the most important tool in a PC gamer's arsenal. Here we have a list of our favourite gaming mice, from the classics that have stood the test of time, to the newest wireless rodents on the market.

Bring on the clicky ones!

Ambidextrous mice suck, particularly the lachesis I've never had a more uncomfortable mouse, I'm seeing way too many overrated razer products here, the death adder and mamba are the only ones deserving, for the lefty's they are better off going with a left handed death adder or something from steel series imo.

Steelseries Sensei for me is the best one

No G500? One of the best gaming mice on the market in my opinion with great features and value. Disappointing CNET.

We agree, the G500 is great! It was here on this very list previously, having just been edged out this time around.

Still, it's a fantastic mouse, and to those keeping the G5 vigil, grab the G500 -- you won't be disappointed.

I wouldn't choose either. Logitech software is so buggy it almost makes their hardware unusable. I find both of these mice to be incredibly uncomfortable as well, which is more important.

Gotta love the old G5 gaming mouse with the weight slot. I haven't found a mouse than is going to replace my yet, but hey I am old school I still think the 2 button serial mouses are Kool :P

Gaming mice are relatively different than the mouse that is used purposely for the work. There are numbers of retailers like that offer computer accessories at discounted rates.

Where's the Microsoft IntelliMouse 3.0!? It's probably the best mice of all time. All the top players use it.
