    If you want to go optical but don't want to go cordless, you can also go that route though many people overlook the fact that they come both corded and cordless. I have an Intellimouse Explorer(cordless) and a Logitech optical(corded) as well as an Intellitrack Trackball, each has its advantage and disadvantage but for general gaming I prefer my Logitech, it seems to have better responsiveness than the intellimouse.

    It's really all going to boil down to personal preference, comfort, and how quickly you can get used to the mouse. I use a couple of Microsoft IntelliEye Explorers and a Microsoft IntelliEye Optical for gaming. Those are really the only 3 machines I game on so those are the only mice I use. You should prolly go try some out (friends and stores) and make sure you change configs and sensitivities to match what you'd actually use.

    As soon as you get this supposed new mouse, be sure to do this to it ;)
    Since you apparently like to tweak stuff ;)
