It will depend on your preference. The higher the dpi setting the more responsive/twitchy your mouse will be be. The only way to know which dpi setting is right for you is to get the mouse of your choice and experiment with the settings until you find what you're comfortable with.

If you play BF3, or BC2 then the higher the better for tanks. My 5900DPI mouse is perfect for using the tanks, twists the turret around very fast.

Mines 4000dpi but I rarely switch it above 1500.

Just buy a mouse with good adjustability and try where you like it.

I'm still using a MX518 with 1600 DPI and it still does fine in my books. Though I do wish it was higher at some points the new mousepad has helped a bit
