  1. hi, i've been gaming for 2 years with wax paper as a mouse pad [ LOL ]

    the other day, my mouse got caught on the wax paper, went for a hard stroke on my mouse, and the whole wax paper tore off

    so basically, im tired of using this dumb wax paper as a mouse pad and im trying to get a good mouse pad and mouse if there is a nice deal on one

    a mouse pad that i'm looking for is a plastic surface like a razer exactmat but i find it too pricey

    if you guys have any recommendations on sites and such, please let me know

    and if you see any good deals on mouses please let me know

    For a mousepad, just use any smooth cloth or plastic mousepad you can find. Avoid the ones made of velvety cloth, since they provide resistance to quick movements with the mouse, which I've learned from experience.

    As for the mouse, grab a mouse which is comfortable for you to hold for long hours. It doesn't matter what brand it is, it just has to be comfortable. I myself use a comfy $10 Genius mouse with some free plastic mousepad I got from some university field trip. It works great for me, even when gaming. The key is comfort and ergonomics. Aesthetics and brands are at the bottom of the list, for me at least.

    Gaming Mice:

    Logitech G9: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104079&Tpk=G9+Mouse

    Logitech G5: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104076

    Wolf King Trooper: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826620008

    The Trooper is the cheapest and has some good qualities for being so cheap. The G5 is discontinued but is still an amazing mouse. The G9 is the best, it seems though some people question it's design. Oh if you have small hands do not go for the Trooper.

    Mouse pad: Just a normal cloth one in my opinion. I assume you game competitively like me.
