I've always had gaming mice, it's not the DPI that's most noticeable (although they are very precise), it's their large feet (the non-slip pads underneath) are generally huge and allow them to slide more freely. I've got 3x Logitech G500 mice (no longer made), they're nice as they can be adjusted for weight and balance (they have a little cartridge with weights in that you can adjust).

And call me old fashioned but I actually prefer corded mice. I bought Microsoft's first cordless and was changing batteries every week or two, pathetic! (they've come a long way since but I'd rather they be physically connected, far easier to get my head around).

Oh, and get yourself a good mouse mat.  I bought one of these four years ago (still in use), lovely and smooth and a decent size too.

Well, I've got a Logitech M705 "corldess" mouse, worked very well so far - oh, and the batteries seem to last forever, this set has been in for over a year (I've played Far Cry 3/4 & COD without problems so far too). As Steven say's, get a quality mat too, well worth it.

I switched to the Roccat Lua Mouse. And Roccat ISKU Keyboard about 6 months back. Think if I recall I got them at Maplin. They all light up blue which is a nice touch and the speed is unbelievable. You can make shortcuts with keys and pre record even whole sentences or logins etc. The mouse speed is awesome. And you get software to customise it all.

The only bad thing I've noticed is the mouse wheel seems to get a bit of a squeak on about month 4 which is a common known issue, so it then needs a bit of lube!

I use a little Logitech, it has all the buttons and a wheel.  I now edit from the sofa throw or the arm rest.  I am right handed, but use the mouse with the left hand.....long story.  There is no best, just what you like to use.  That is it.

had a few over the years and not been happy with all of them, the present one I'm using is a microsoft one its arched to fit in my hand better and super smooth quick and responsive, But since I've had a mac i use there mouse and its pretty good as well only snag is its not got a right and left button.

I think a mouse is a personal thing you keep trying them till you find one that suits you.

If you're using the mac magic mouse you can actually use right and left click. I was using mine for about three months thinking that there was no right click facility but my son told me to just press on the right hand side at the top and that is your right click. Embarrassing!

You may be using a different one though 
How hard can it be?
