Default Looking for a mouse :)

Is this where accessories go?
If they do, I have $50, I mean literally $50 max.
I got a rebate and that is all I have to blow.
I need both a new keyboard and a new mouse, though I feel a mouse is more beneficial. I play COD
So first should I get a mouse or keyboard, I feel a mouse will better, I am open-minded though
Plus if so I have $50 MAX to spend, plus shipping plus everything.
I am looking for something comfortable and that works well, looks are a bonus.
That's all I want.
If it's possible I would like to mouse to have a blue lighting, NOT NECESSARY at all, but it would be nice to fit my lighting
I can't seem to find a good selection at Newegg, am I looking in the wrong place?
It doesn't have to be exactly $50, it can only be less. If anything I'll throw in a mouse pad if I still have some money left

Maybe look into the Logitech G5's? Also, the Razer DeathAdder and Lachesis are fantastic, but a bit out of your price range. This is sort of a hard thing to find, because the really good mouses (or mice?) are just out of your pricerange

Haha yeah i know
But I'm happy with $50
I think I need to clear something up, haha I don't need an excellent mouse. Just something better then basic, lower then a "true" gaming mouse.
I have a regular Gateway stock mouse, I'm sure there's something for $50 that will be good.
I just need something that is decent
Haha any ideas? Or just impossible?

Awesome mouse for the price, great for gaming. And, it's right in your price range

No problem. If you don't need the DPI, I guess you could go with a cheaper mouse, but it's gonna be hard to find one as nice and ergonomic.


As for keyboards, I highly recommend the illuminated Merc gaming keyboard, Saitek's, and the almighty IBM Model M2

The Logitech G11 and G15's are also excellent choices.

the MX518 is an awesome mouse, you won't find many (if any) detractors anywhere...

I had the Logitech G7 laser mouse. It's worked great apart from the fact that both batteries are no longer holding a charge. I'm currently using a wired Microsoft mouse.

I also have the Logitech G15 keyboard, that's just amazing to use!

Isn't the MX518 almost identical to the G5?

I think the G5 may be a bit bigger, but I'm not sure...

I had to modify my computer desk when I got my G15, it was too wide for the keyboard tray...

What about the G110 as a keyboard?
Looks like it functions well, plus the blue

The Lachesis is better in nearly every aspect though, sorry to tell you. I've used both, and I love the Lachesis compared to the DeathAdder. Plus, it's out of his pricerange.

I have an orange G15. The only thing I really like about it is the palm rest and the Windows key switch, I don't ever use the LCD or G-keys.

I have the blue G15, and I really don't use all the options either, the macros don't work in Windows 7 64 bit for me and I only use the LCD for monitoring cpu and memory usage when I don't have it set to the clock, but I am on the computer at night a lot and I hunt and peck, so the backlighting is a huge plus for me...

Well I ordered the mouse
The Mx115 so I'm hoping it'll get here by Saturday, tomorrow would be nice though
No more keyboard talk, I'm jealous
(Ok one more thing about keyboards)
Is the G110 any good?

Just too bad their G line of keyboards use rubber membranes.
