Top Five Gaming Mice under Rs. 5,000
| by Roshan DSilva
PC gaming enthusiasts are known to want the very best when it comes to hardware, whether it be the latest hex-core CPUs or Graphics cards with enough raw performance to fly a space shuttle. Being at the No.1 spot is what it’s all about and some will pay an insane amount of money to do so.
Choose your weapon
More often than not, people forget that the smallest little details makes the biggest difference. Yes, you may own the fastest computer on the planet and the skill to take on the world of online or offline gaming., but games nowadays, especially FPS, need you to be precise and accurate. A split second delay could be the difference between life and death and this is more evident in Online Multiplayer gaming, where you go up against actual people with an equal or greater skillset. Having the hardware which gives you the precision and accuracy to take them down (before they do the same to you) is the need of the day. Regular mice just can’t cut it as they aren’t built for the task at hand, they are created keeping in mind day to day usage where precision and accuracy mean squat.
The old warhorse
Ye old faithful, as I call the MX518, released way back in 2005 and is still popular to this day (albeit with a few upgrades). It has been a mainstay for gamers who are just starting out or want bang for their buck gaming mouse. The MX518 packs in a 1800 DPI sensor which provides a great platform for newbies to start honing their skills. Ergonomically, it's one of the best gaming mice we have tested, in the way that it is moulded perfectly for all types of grips and hand sizes. The two programmable buttons near the thumb rest, as well as the DPI switchers, are perfectly placed and don’t require the user to fumble about when using them. When it comes to looks, Logitech has given the MX518 a holographic dented look which is in line with the whole concept of gaming.
No frills, plain and simple
The Razer Abyssus is a simple ‘no frills’ gaming mouse with one simple agenda, Kill thy enemy. The Abyssus does away with the bulky design that a lot of gaming mice tend to go after and offers an exquisitely carved slim body with the blue Razer logo to offset the matte black colour and add a little ‘bling’ to it. One thing worth noting is that the Abyssus is much smaller than your average mouse, so do keep that in mind if you intend to purchase one.
