    Kind of irrelevant in retrospect. That is totally unnecessary.

    I have concerns for anyone who uses more than 3000-3500 dpi. I increase sensitivity pretty damn high when I'm rocking with a shotgun in Crysis 2 (need those 180-degree reflex kills) but anything higher than 2500 feels impossible to control.

    @Drunken, considered the NZXT Switch 810? Not much to look at from the outside, but the watercooling support is excellent according to reviews:

    I've never liked any cases from NZXT, but this one seems worth looking into.

    I honestly want to upgrade my mouse at some point but I've grown so accustomed to my Razer Death Adder 1800dpi that I'm afraid I'm going to move the mouse and be like WHOAAAAAAAAAAA crap. I mean some of these amounts are 3x or almost 4x as much dpi! D:

    Now he's going to bother me about this case for the next few days.

    NZXT never particularly impressed me with with their cheap-looking plastic exteriors (especially Phantom) but the Switch 810 is on a whole new level compared to anything they've previously released. It still uses plastic but you're getting a top-notch watercooling case that competes with 800D/etc at a significantly lower price.

    It doesn't support Hyper-ATX boards though.

    All of this being true - I can't help but look at most of NZXT's cases and thinking if you were to drop it (typically we don't, but example!) it would just break apart into a bunch of pieces. x_x

    Why change what works, right? Personally I'm pretty excited for the Zowie AM though. 2300 dpi is my preferred setting. It's like SpawN is designing his mouse just for me!

    Yeah it's a good point, though I figure with this mouse already being 3 years old I'm sure it will die out sooner or later and I'll have to make a choice. =S Wish there were more places that let you demo things like keyboards and mice to see what you like. I really want to get a mechanical keyboard at some point, but I don't know which. x_x

    I actually found a flaw with the legendary MX518, the glossy surface has become slippery after all this time.
    As usual Logitech are on the top of their game and addressed that with the G400 (along with a more responsive wheel), which I immediately bought as my MX518 replacement. That mouse was built for me <3

    Still sitting here with my 4 year old MX518, 20 of the ~45 MX518's that was bought back when the local gaming café opened (which was 2-3 years ago) are still functional and being used. I'm surprised of how solid they are, damn good purchase considering all the kids slamming with them.

    On another note, is the G400 as good as the MX518? I've been wanting to have a backup mouse for some time now, a cheap razer mouse isn't gonna do it :P

    G400 essentially is the MX518 with small tweaks (DPI/performance/etc) to keep it relevant in today's world. MX518 still uses the old Setpoint software while the G400 has been updated to use Logitech Gaming software which gives you a central control panel for all your logitech products (e.g. keyboads, other game controllers, etc). It also allows you to customize 3 different DPI settings for the DPI buttons, MX518 didn't let you do this. You could only pick a single DPI and it would go one step up or one step down, but you couldn't customize those steps. G400+drivers allow you to do that which I love. The glossy plastic has been replaced with a more grippier texture which I also like.

    Logitech's description:
    "If you liked the Logitech MX518, you'll love the G400. You get the features you've come to rely on with improvements in precision and speed.

    When an ordinary mouse just won’t do—a 3600 dpi optical engine, 2X greater dpi than the MX518, gives you precision targeting and pinpoint accuracy."
    So yeah, I'm sure the G400 will earn the "tank-like durability" title that the series is known for :P

    It sure is I don't play games with it that high, but when it's the same price for more dpi why would I get the older outdated version? :P

    hmmm guess I can join this thread now...

    i7 2600k
    Asus P8Z68-VLX
    8GB
    120GB SSD
    1TB HDD
    Nvidia 560ti GTX 1GB (I know don't roll your eyes too hard)

    Steelseries shift Keyboard, Razer Naga (had before this setup, still like it)

    For what I require this computer does what I need it to both gaming and workwise. J'adore.
    If that graphics card in a year no longer manages what I need it to then I'll have to upgrade but for now it's handling fine, only some minor issues with some of the 3D work I do. And this won't be the main PC I use it on so it's great for working at home on just the modeling.


    The only part I wasn't sure about was the motherboard...my computer knowledge would be considered above average but not quite adequate enough to fully piece together the true efficiency of my computer without some outside research.

    Oh and I definitely need a new case but for the price I got it I wasn't going to be too picky.

    Alas, Xuvial, it's far too late to bring up the NZXT Switch 810 now. Besides, I don't like it's exterior appearance particularly. I really do like the case's features though. They're really good. But not gonna change my mind at this stage now. :P

    New watercooling stuff is supposed to come within the hour or so now, as I understand it. I'll throw some pictures up again when they appear, I think.

    I put this together several months-->years ago parts cost just over 400$ ssd was reused from another machine.

    As for software I'm running Win7 x64 home-->Win8.1 Pro w/ WMC, XBMC, PowerDvd 11 Ultra-->12 Ultra, and I recently picked up a used Ipod Touch 2nd gen--> now using a Logitech K400r to control everything.

    Just wanted to share my view:

    lazer sensor, dpi switch, macro editor with onboard memory, solid meterials. 30 bucks.
    3 - years of raiding, works like a champ, doesn't look bad either. And most important - no glossy surfaces, good grip.

    Student Activities Affair was today at my college and the Computer Club decided I should bring in my rig to sort of show off more or less, and I could leave it overnight tonight since tomorrow we have a LAN party. So here I am in the middle of my tower and monitor with the Linux Club people to the left in the picture.
