Another System Builder... in Lounge Posted December 28, 2000 prana: i know optical mice aren't that good for fps, but i'm using one right now without major problems. you get used to the lifting thing, and i don't have any major problem with movements not registering. i'd love to check out the boomslang or another good mouse, except it's not available in my area. i wonder how much performance increase i'd get with it. i'll try my old ball mouse to see wether it works better than the optical, now that i got used to this one.
