That's going to be personal - and depends on your hands size and personal preferences. I still use an Logitech mx510 at home and a mx518 at work. Any mouse is going to work in Vista 64, unless maybe you want a trackball or something that's ancient.

Logitech Revolution Laser is cordless and every button is programmable.
I think I got it for about $65. I put it on a Razor Exactmat mouse pad, which seems
a little nuts because they are about $40, smoothest combo I’ve ever used.
I don’t regret it.

I am using a Razer Lachesis, love it to death. Not for fabric mats though..it will "read" the weave and "float" around.

I wouldn't recommend cordless for gaming, it's like a tenth commandment. three things must come into mind when purchasing a graming grade mouse. 1) hand size, 2) resolution, 3) high sensitivity or low sensitivity

please answer all three.

I use a Logitech G7 for gaming and it works like a dream. It has 5 sensitivity settings you can setup and switch through on the fly. Ive never had a problem with there being a delay in games.

I have been using the G7 for a few years now,and like it so much i now own 3.The sensitivity setting are great,get some one in your sights click down on sensitivity,head shot, and the side botton is great for the knife in COD4.Some people say the battery's life is to short, but i get about 6 hrs out of charge .I have a G5 to but i hated the cord so much i gave to little brother, and he loves it

I also have to recommend the Logitech G7 i have 2 of them now, one on my gaming machine, and one on my 2nd PC.

You can adjust the mouse from 400dpi to 2000dpi on the fly. It comes preset at 400/800/2000, and gives you the option to add 2 more sensitivities i use
400/600/800/1600/2000

Its a great mouse, it includes 2 battery's so you never have any down time, one battery is always charging while the other is in use.

On my gaming rig i have mine combined with a Rocketfish "Speed" mouse pad i picked up from Futureshop. They work good together but you can probably find an even nicer mouse pad if your willing to spend the money.

1) Med to small
2) depends on the game - but generally very high
3) high

heard a lot about these razor mice, but they seem to crap out on people, and have vista issues.

i was thinking of the G5 or G9.....
