What DPI settings do you use?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm having trouble finding the settings I like when playing games, and I usually use 1000 DPI in the desktop/web browsing and 1500 DPI when gaming. Whenever I change it from those, it's either too slow or too fast. So, what DPI settings do you prefer when using your mouse?

Mice DPI? I use 3000DPI on desktop and custom on games as it always depends how it handles aiming and sensitiveness.
