Re: gaming mouse
I agree, I just can't see spending a whole bunch of money on a mouse. I got an MX700 used at a store around here for 30 bucks, it was 2 years old but in original packing and everything, didn't even have a scratch on it. I really like it, great for gaming, precise, wireless and it's rechargeable and the charges hold for about 5 days straight. They don't make it anymore but I think you could probably find one online for a decent price. You could also go with the MX1000, which I've heard great things about but I forget how much it cost.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
