has extra buttons in really useful places

so far I've used the forward and backwards mouse buttons for my gaming interface, to great effect. Any more that are super useful to have that I'm missing out on?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

It's very subjective. I've used logitech m100, g203, g502, g303; razer deathadder, mamba TE and zowie fk1, ec2-a. For fps & shooters i love the g203 & ec2-a but i hate the ec2-a scroll wheel. 

I like big mice for anyhing but fps & shooters. fk1 and g502 being my favorites big mice.

I can use the g203 for windows tasks/non-gaming but the bigger mice feel more comfortable for these tasks.

At the moment i'm using a g203 and i love it. I'd like to try the g pro and see if the cord tangles or not, my g203 tangles some times.

I'd say a good mouse feels like you have total control of the cursor or your aim in game and it never skips, I'd also include having two side buttons and a dpi button to switch between normal & sniper.

IMO logitech software is the best for customization, razer is the best for rgb (chroma can't be beaten) but it's really buggy (I have to re-plug my mice/keyboard at least once a day)

I was considering green only, trying to avoid RGB software if possible.

I'd say a good mouse should feel comfortable to you, first and foremost. People can recommend you mice all day long but its so subjective - everyone raves about the G502 but I hate how it feels in my hand, and I tested it for a few weeks before switching it out for the Corsair Ironclaw which fits my hand perfectly. I still like the G502, but using it long-term, I found myself groaning about how small it felt in my hand and how hard reaching certain buttons was for me. The best thing I can say is, figure out what you want from a mouse. What kind of grip style you want, how many buttons do you absolutely need to have, do you like a heavy mouse or a light mouse, etc. and then pick some mice that fit your criteria and give them a shot. The best way to find your perfect mouse is to just try some mice and see what feels right to you.

In left handed position I use the back-set one on the right side and the forward-set one on the left side. The former is set to quick melee in any game that has one, or Guard Break in FH. The latter is fienting in FH, or various binds in other things. 

 

The forward right and back left buttons aren't easy for me to reach without shifting my hand, but 2 buttons is all I really need 😛

Size and ergonomy matters alot!

 

This is my experience regarding mouse size and ergonomy.

 

I have one of the so-called best cheap gaming mouse, the Logitech G300S, I bought it because it has some nice additional buttons layouts on the edge of the left and right click buttons, and some on the back of the scroll.

 

The features are nice, the DPI is not so high (2500), relatively decent optical sensor but for its price it's great, the number of additional buttons and their layout are the features what I need mainly so it served me well in the earlier of its use on the game I play, "BUT" because it is a small sized mouse while my hand size is aproximately between medium-large size, this mouse becomes feel suck after the first couple of months.

 

Then I challenged myself to find a better mouse which has similar additional buttons and layouts as G300S, and I ended up with Roccat Tyon, I know Roccat Leadr is the much better in term of sensor than Tyon, but because the Leadr is wireless and too heavy for my preference and too expensive, which made me hold myself and get the Tyon instead. It turned to be a blast! Tyon/Leadr has the exact same additional buttons layout as G300S, and large size with right handed shape which fits so well under my hand, while G300S is an ambidextrous which is uncomfortable, honestly the G300S serves me well in term of performance but its size and ergonomy are the thing that I won't use it again.

 

So, size and ergonomy is the top priority over the performance and features.
