    I think the logitech G9X would be your best choice. I've been using it for 3 months

    G9x and TactX should be identical, from what I've been reading

    i've been using razer mamba for 3 mounth already. its the best mouse for my purposes - precision editing and sometimes precision gaming. i'm using wireless mode - and with 1ghz polling rate, 4000 dpi and macros ability (the design important for me too) it became a new standart of wireless mouse for me

    I suggest the Logitech G500. 10 programmable buttons plus a scrollwheel mode switch, that unlike the G9x/TactX (both of which have only 9 programmable buttons, by the way) are all easily accessible, 200-5700dpi, 1GHz polling rate, less expensive.

    Logitech mice are a lot more sturdy than Razer mice, too.

    Definetely the Alienware TactX. I don't know why Razer are still making mice, at least in my opinion they're inferior to those of other companies, especially when you look at the fact they don't even have a bloody DPI switch on the mouse which many other mice do now.

    the copperheads (released in 2005) and diamondbacks (released in 2004) do. and i think you can edit the side buttons on the deathadder to change DPI, not 100% sure on that though.

    been using a Razer Death Adder for the last 3 years and its awesome, on my second one now as the first batch they made had faulty mousewheels which they later fixed. i use very low sensitivity in counterstrike source and high sensitivity in Quake & UT and its works perfectly on both

    and i see they have a new revamped version that came out at the end of september

    Neither, Razer Orochi instead.
