Default Need a new gaming mouse!

Hi,

I am a bit of a gamer and I was wondering what would be a good gaming mouse that I could buy for a decent price. I am currently using a Logitech m305 (def not a gaming mouse), because I have sort of small hands, I used to use regular mice before, but after tying the small ones I feel like I have so much more control over things now. Anyways if anyone could suggest a good gaming mouse of a similar price for a good price I would really appreciate it.

Thanks!

Logitech G9x seems to be perfect for you if you enjoy small mice.

Love my Gigabyte laser mouse, was a little leery as the price was under $40, but going on 13 months now and works like the day I bought it.

CM Storm Spawn or Xornet, you won't find a better mouse for small hands under $40.

I really don't mind the wired ,I seem to have no luck with wireless ,the Logitech that I had was just a M510,it was laser but it did'nt last six months ,but I also got a different HDTV and it was not smooth at all it just junp and would'nt pick up the signal.The G9x I got has no problems it is really smooth but that High DPI helped out alot I keep it at 2200DPI and 100 reports/sec.I will be glad when I get my new key board,the G110 ,I like it because of the lights and the extra USB 2.0 port in the back of it.

I got the CM Storm Spawn as I didn't want my first gaming mouse to be THAT expensive, and TBH I can't get used to it over the Logitech M305. I haven't found a setting that compares or it's better than the one i had on the M305, maybe because I am playing with no mouse pad the sensor on the button of the mouse it's not working properly, I truly don't know. 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
