I recently accidentally threw my cheap and cheerful Gigabyte gaming mouse at a wall with great force, with no thought of the consequences of such an action. Guess how that worked out for me?

So I'm in the market for a new gaming mouse. I've had a scout around and all the best reviews seem to be for mouseses that cost upwards of fifty quid. Well I'm definitely not spending as much as that, but are the more expensive ones actually worth it? Will I be able to get one that will be excellent but will not cost (what seems to me) an excessive amount for something I will only use for CS:GO and occasional forays into other FPS games, or am I better sticking to the cheapo ten quid gaming mice that Amazon seems to sell tons of? I won't be throwing it, honest.

Nice one FMJ is this: http://www.ebay.co.u...G-/181152735376 a real version of that? Amazon don't have any at all and say they don't think they'll get any in again (they've been discontinued apparently). It says 'JUSTRISK' on that mouse/image which is making me think it might not be real.

Yah it looks like the one i have. I think you are right about the model number being discontinued. I think they gave it a new model name, but im not sure, i have seen one called G400 which is identical but it also says "discontinued" on a danish web site.

The G400s looks pretty much the same as the old mx518, so it might be the one to go for.

Maybe also keep a cheap expendable mouse to hand in case you feel another 'accident' coming on. ;)

okay after nearly two months the new one finally arrived. I downloaded the logitech software (none came with the mouse) and installed it. The Logitech software, however, says there's no logitech hardware connected. The mouse is in, it works in windows, but logitech says it's not there. Have I purchased a fake Logitech mouse?

I don't think you should be allowed near technology.

I think you might be right Frost. GTA V wouldn't work on my console and now the USB ports are shafted so I can't play Rocksmith! I fucking hate technology
