    Hey everyone.
    I just bought the Razer Pro:Type
    http://www.razerzone.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=55
    I hope it turns out to be as amazing as it looks :)


    So I have my Keyboard need satisfied.

    But Now I need a mouse.
    The thing is, that keyboard has pretty much exhausted my keyboard/mouse budget.
    I have about 30-40 bucks left in my budget.
    What would be a good mouse to game with, and would look nice with the keyboard?

    I'll recommend the Logitech Revolution VX once more. It truly is a great mouse. I bought it to replace my Mighty Mouse about a year ago and love it.

    Logitech MX-518! I have that.

    Or try the Logitech G5, that's one uber-gaming mouse.

    i have to agree with ravenvii, i love my logitech vx revolution mouse too. its prefect sizing, not to big or small. the only bad thing about it is the battery life, it only last about 2 months. whereas my desktop logitech mouse lasts +6 months.

    I've posted before on how much I love my Razer Pro|Click v1.6, and it would seem a no-brainer for you to pick one up because it is a fantastic gaming mouse that was actually designed to match your keyboard.

    Ironically Microsoft make great mice. I've used a Microsoft optical scroll mouse for years and it's always stood me well while gaming. But get this version and not the newer one.

    It cost me like £10 off eBay. Woot!

    I love my BT mighty mouse, I really miss the 360º scrolling when I'm in college using the old-fashioned vertical scrolling.
    Only thing is though, the sensors in the scroll-ball seem to be getting clogged a lot recently (maybe my room is too dusty) but a quick rub with a screen-cloth sorts it out.

    I second the Logitech Revolution. My MacBook serves as a desktop now, so I use the MX Revolution. This is seriously the most ergonomic mouse with the most efficient scrollwheel I have ever used.

    That is the only Microsoft mouse that I have had that lasted more than 6 months, and this has lasted me several years.

    I had a vx revolution, and it would be a great choice...

    ... but I sold it because I like the MX518 even more! It's an awesome mouse all around, and it's fantastic for games. Can be had for about $40 I believe.

    So tonight I went out bought some RAM, and a Logitech VX Revolution.
    Since I bought 4gb of RAM, I was forced to cancel my order for the Pro Type :(

    So I bought a Microsoft Curve 2000.

    I honestly Love the Keyboard, its so amazingly comfortable.
    As for the VX...Well its a great mouse indeed, but it is starting to hurt my pinky, because of the way it hangs of the side of the mouse.
    Tough I think I will get used to this in the next few days of use.

    Thanks for the advice everyone.
