For the last few days my left mouse button and scroll has been stuffing up and just getting it to click I need to press it 2 or 3 times, kinda like if something sticky got under it and it needs 2 or 3 clicks to get it unstuck, then 2 minutes later it wont click again(I even had to change it around so the main click button is on the right), so im after a new mouse. My one now is a microsoft optical blue mouse and I check and a new one is only $20 now but i'd like a newer one. Whats a good mouse that is good for both gaming and internet? I really don't care about extra buttons on the side(infact I find them annoying) and I dont mind if its wireless or not just an optical mouse than won't leave a nice large crater in my wallet I really cant afford like $150 or some big thing like that on a mouse. Also I use the mouse both left and right handed but most good mouses(or is it mice for the hardware as well?) today seem to be right only. Thanks.:)

Logitech makes great mice. http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/products/productlist/US/EN,crid=2134&categoryid=413

As long as you avoid the laptop mice you shouldn't go wrong. G7 would be my choice but maybe a little expensive. MX610, maybe?

Yeah, I have a Logitech MX510 and it is just fantastic for both normal use and gaming.

there are no buttons on the right hand side of the mouse. the buttons you can see on the pics are the only ones. the small center button behind the wheel is a nifty logitech task switcher.

I love the MS mice for general useage but I never quite got used to them for gaming, especially if it's one of the ones with a 4 direction scroll wheel (I think the IE v4 has that). Never felt like I had the same level of control as with a Logitech mouse. But I used them for years and apart from that, always loved them. They're usually a fair bit cheaper too, so definately worth considering if the Logitech mice are a bit expensive.

If you can find an MX510 or MX700 (essentially the cordless version of the MX510) in stock anywhere, might be worth going for. Should be fairly cheap because they're out of production, but they're seriously good mice. I have the MX700 personally, colors are a bit worn after 2 years of sweaty palms but other than that nothing wrong with it.

[COLOR=black]I agree with Lord Weiner, the MX510 is great for gaming and surfing the web. The two scroll buttons above and below the mouse wheel are a great idea. I use the Logitech G5, which although has a higher DPI, it’s not much different to the MX510. The G5 can change sensitivity on the fly though via two buttons below the mouse wheel. So for long range sniper shots I normally put it to the lower sensitivity, I find it easier to track and hit targets at long range when the sensitivity is lower. [/COLOR]

Razer mice (except the Boomslang, I suppose) are not a good idea if you have large hands though, they're bloody tiny.
