Looking for a good performing mouse

not stupidly priced - the g5 would be my maximum spending really unless i can get a decent mousemat thrown in. basically i have around 20 cms width (doesnt matter the other way as long as one side is 20cm) as my saitek eclipse takes up most of the keyboard slideout tray and i want as less mousemat wasted as possible. icemat original was suggested to fit this space but £20 is the cheapest i can get it in the uk (at all!)

as for the mouse, i aint using majorly big resolutions (1280x1024 max!) so maybe the 2000dpi of the g5 is pushing it...all i need is suggestions thanks you

G5 is an awesome mouse, I am using one right now 2000dpi at 1280x1024 rez and am very happy with it. I suggest you pick one up, you won't be disappointed.

but is the price as subtle as they are worth it over the competition? will that mousemat make such a difference over my foam/cloth one?

My main concern is cost effectiveness

well i hate the feel of my "normal shaped" packard bell - and i often change between cloth/foam mousepad and bare wood. Im working bare wood atm, seems easier to frag like that
