I use a Microsoft 'IntelliMouse' 5 buttoned, optical mouse on a leash. I've tried a wireless mouse, I think it was the mx750, I couldn't use it. It's way to laggy and it jumps around the screen on it's own all the time. You can't beat the refresh rate of a cabled mouse. :)

Yep. It has to be optical (A good optical engine is a MUST) and cabled.

I use an optical non-gaming mouse, and I have no problems holding my own online.

But some mice that are optical have problems. MS mice are usually fine.

Yer, I'm like WTF? as well. How good is a trackball for gaming? I understand it would probably be ffine for RTS, but can you play FPS well with it?

I would get a mx510. but they're not $36 here in aus.... last i saw was AU$95 - farking exchange rates....

I heard trackballs are extremely good for FPS gaming once you get used to them. You can look completely behind you in ~1 nano secound. You just have to use it for a long time.

The biggest advantage of a Trackball, over a traditional mouse. Is that you don't have to waste time, picking it up, and recentering it. Then, again, it may not be that big of an advantage, because you still have to pick your finger up, and place it again, after every movement almost.

The optical trackballs are even worse. I recommend an old-fashioned ball version. One that rolls like a bowling ball, in a bowling alley, or on ice. Like a regular mouse, the higher the resolution the better.

Very hard to get used to though...
