Default razer or gigabyte?

I'm getting a new mouse soon and I have pretty much narrowed it down to... the Razer deathadder or the Gigabyte m8000x ghost. I like the shape of both and i generally palm my mice. I'm coming from a crappy logitech ex 100 mouse that makes my hand cramp like crazy after a while lol. Does anyone have any other suggestions around the $50 range (not to much higher)?.


edit: I play lots of fps and rpgs and the like

The Razer Deathadder is a great mouse. been using mine for over 2 years now, and ive been really happy with it. If you do go with it, its gonna go over your budget ($60@NCIX) but i say its worth it

The deathadder is great, its a little bit cheaper at CC. Razer DeathAdder 3500dpi 3.5G Infrared Sensor Gaming Mouse - black (RZ01-00151400-R3U1) | Canada Computers

Another vote for the Razer DeathAdder. Great mouse IMO and feels wonderful in your hand.

Well. luckily I'll be probably getting them from newegg since Im from Texas(ugh). Lots of deathadder love lol.

has anyone used both of the mentioned mice?

I have read abit on the deathadder and there is tons of good comments about it but it has been out for awhile so would it be considered out-of-date when compared to the gigabyte mouse?

Most of us use Razer and Logitech, maybe a few with Steel Series too. They're just the major players in the mouse market.

Though the Gigabyte, feature wise, looks good. Don't know what the quality/feel is like in real-life though. I'm guessing you could always return it though if you don't like it?
