Looking for a new mouse

I dunno whether to get the OCZ Equalizer Laser Gaming Mouse

Or the Razer Copperhead Tempest 2000 dpi, Laser Ultra Precision Gaming Mouse (Blue)

I've heard that the Razer is much more smoother with the 1000hz ultrapolling but I do like the OCZ because of it's price. Anyone on the forum have the mouses and are they good?

G5 is kinda out of my price range.. £37 max.

My current mouse is a MX700 but it's dieing, and it's wireless. And optical which doesn't work much for FPS games anymore

MX518 + 1000 MHz polling rate = Win

Ive got the OCZ and its a dam good mouse imo. Its a nice shape and easy too use for long, long periods. Its sculpted too rightys, unlike the copperhead which is for both leftys and rightys making it a little more uncomfortable.

And just a heads up

http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/...cat=620&page=1

Thats pretty much the same mouse.

Tbh, either would probably do you fine once you'r used too it.
