This coming from a person who plays Counter Strike Source Professionally, take my word for it; the MX518 ($50) is my number 1, then the Steelseries Xai ($80), and lastly the razer deathadder ($50)
The MX518 is by far the best as it is an optical mouse and does not in any was fake its DPI like the deathadder does for example, and on top of that it is VERY consistent.
Trust me when I say this, the XAI is just as good, but the price is well pricy, and lastly the deathadder is the best laser mouse out there but, laser mice are not very good for gaming.
Don't waste your money on a g500, or CM sentinel, they are garbage imo. They dont track consistently enough to be considered good. That is why the deathadder is the only laser mouse id ever reccomend. ALSO with a mouse you'll need a good mousepad. So go pick up a steelseries QCK+, its only like $15 and covers your whole desk.
Going through seven pages with no Steelseries Xai recommendation almost made me lose faith until someone did. Best mouse ever! Problem is they're hard to find in Canada. Their 6g V.2 and 7G keyboards are also the best. Really expensive though, and does not have any gimmicks such as back-lighting or color schemes.
Second fav of mine is the Razer Naga. I'm sure it was designed by a SC2 freak because having a 1~9 number pad where your thumb is should make micro managing an army of 200 units possible with one hand.
RAT 7 is good as well.
