Default Wireless Gaming Mouse

saw a thread go by the other day and now I have the itch for a gaming mouse.

I know 90% of my problem is I have a small dell mouse pad so that is going to be on order too.

I would like something wireless, made for gaming. I was looking at the G7:

but don't like how it only has one thumb button. I have read the the scroll button can be tricky in the wheel likes to roll left or right, that is my main complaint about my current mouse.

any other ideas for something wireless and in the same price range?

I wouldn't go with wireless. Wired tends to react slightly faster, and be more stable. Plus, no batteries, which also means less weight.

yes but I would think the wire getting hung up would be more of a problem.

Nah. Depends on where you have it, but mine goes from the top of my desk where my tower is, under my desk, up to the keyboard tray. It's fine.

The wires on most gaming mice are of high quality materials and are pretty long. You won't get the polling rate and the accuracy of a wired one. Wireless mice are pretty much useless for gaming.

I use a Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer for gaming and have no problems at all. It works great, no lag and it's plenty accurate.

I saw that G7 earlier and didn't like the fact that it has only one side button.
