This is where a question comes in, what's a good gaming (or regular) mouse pad for this mouse? I was told that a dark cloth mouse pad would be my best bet. :S
That's strange, the M305 and the CM Storm Spawn use very similar Avago made optical sensors.

Have you checked the firmware? There were a few sensor bugs in the earlier iterations. A mouse pad would help too, but you honestly shouldn't need a "gaming" pad, although some good ones can be had for fairly cheap. (Steelseries QCK's can be had for ~$6, and are pretty good)

Gaming I pull out my CM Storm Mat ( it is white and doesnt go with my setup or I would use it 24/7) Unfortunately they were custom CM mats that only got 100 produced........... but it did fix my Sensor issue with my twin-eye sensor:/

But yeah no mat isnt going to feel to good IMO

So basically what you are saying is that no matter what mat I buy, unless it is a CM Storm mat my experience with the mouse will be miserable? Lol can I get my money back?

Btw I forgot to mention that I want a wireless one, IF possible.
Either have a gaming mouse or a wireless one, you cannot have both I'm afraid. The only wireless gaming mouse that 'works' is the razer mamba as far as I know. But that thing costs a fortune. I currently have a g9 (same as g9x but older laser) and it is superb.

You might like a razer mouse though since they make small asian hand-sized mice.

Gigabyte M6900.
I have this mouse and I love it. Its dirt cheap and just as good as the high priced gaming mice out there. It may not be as solid as the expensive ones but performance wise its equal. I've never had such a smooth and comfortable mouse as this. It goes on sale for less $20 regularly, the regular price is only $25 at NCIX. I strongly recommend you give it a whirl before buying one of the pricier gaming mice.

It really depends on the person but you don't need to spend a lot to get a good gaming mouse if you can do without some bells and whistles (LED lights, custom profiles, etc.)

To find the best gaming mouse for my needs, I stumbled upon this site, Top Gaming Mice | A collection of the top 10 best mice for gaming. which made everything a lot easier.

Razer makes some good mice. Just dont' expect them to last long cause I hear lots of people break theirs somehow. I got a Razer Deathadder 3.5 and its perfect.

Get a Mionix Sargas 400 Mouse Pad along with a Logitech G400 optical gaming mouse. G400 should be onlt 40-45$ but it's one of the most raved about gaming mouse you will find.

If you don't have a mouse pad I would recommend either the Sargas 400 or a Steelseries 4HD/9HD.
