I'm currently using a Razer Deathadder 2013 but now its slowly starting to fall apart and the rubber padding keeps falling off. It was a great mouse and it had a good run, but I think now it's time I get a new one.

Any recommendations? I have a $60 budget and my only real requirements are that the mouse has M4 and M5 buttons and comes with software that will allow me to adjust its DPI.

Been looking at the Logitech G502. I really like the idea of being able to customize its weight and I like the positioning of the extra buttons.

Hate the G502.  Go for the SteelSeries Rival:

Looks basically the same as my current mouse.

Also, what's wrong with the G502?
nothing besides being the heaviest mouse known to mankind

other than that its pretty good if you dont mind the weight

high sensitivity or low sensitivity and what kind of games

if accuracy is your concern you cant really go wrong with anything on this list

check out the shapes of the mice and the weight though, some might be more comfortable depending on the kind of grip you use

I've owned the G502 for about half a year now. Great mouse, 0 complaints. Very accurate, versatile and highly customizable. I don't think it's that heavy either. Pretty sure I even added some weights to the center bit. Great build quality, nice braided cable, does everything I want it to and is very comfortable to use (for my hands and grip at least). I agree with all of the raving reviews and would absolutely recommend.

I'm pretty sure the g502 sensor is a bit better (higher inch per sec, higher possible CPI), but at a level that I don't find necessary.  Ex: You wouldn't want to play past around 800-1200 CPI, because you get to a point where the sensor is subdividing the pixels used for that calculation; it ends up adding more error than playing low CPI + high game sensitivity.

Other than that, the 502 has a coiled cable and adjustable weights, which are nicer.  But I find the Rival much better ergonomically.  I had a 502 at work, and found the thing kinda low-profile, comparatively, so I was clutching it weird and it was throwing me off.  Plus, I like the software for SteelSeries better.

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.

it doesnt have a coiled cable and its still on the taller side of the mouses compared to the rival 100

im not sure any kind of mouse has a coiled cable

sure it has 12000 dpi but i just play 500 and have it as the only setting on my g502 so it doesnt matter anyway

NK was here. Everything I post is dead serious, no jokes.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
What makes a mouse a gaming mouse?

Hight DPI?

Baby-toy lights?

13+ buttons?

A boob-waifu mouse pad?

Oops, I meant braided cable.

And yeah, DPI values over like 1200 are artificial and more damaging.  They're only capable of numbers that high for marketing (because bigger numbers = better mouse, obviously). 

Max DPI should not be a deciding factor in the mouse, because almost all of them are running the same native DPI (somewhere around 800-1200), and just subdividing the pixels to get more extreme values.  Playing higher than the native leads to more noise/imprecision, so it's best to play below/at native and then crank up in-game sensitivity from there.

Best thing to do is run the mouse at around 800 DPI and adjust with in game sensitivity.

High (or variable DPI), side button(s) and a good sensor. RGB lighting and others are a bonus, I'd say.

Having M4 and M5 buttons, a good sensor, and software that allows me to change the DPI are really the only things that matter when it comes to gaming mice.

most mice dont need to be gaming to have side buttons since those are mostly for browser navigation

anyone who plays over 1200 dpi needs to die anyway
