Best gaming Mouse/Controler?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

The only PC game I currently play is WoW. This is also my first MMO game ever. I am a big fan of FPS, but haven't played them on anything but a console in a long time.



So now that my hackintosh is nearly complete, I am wondering about a good mouse/controller for WoW. I'm not against buying a dedicated device, but a decent mouse would be nice to have as well. I hear a lot of talk about the Razr... some good, some bad. I also hear a lot about the MX series from Logitec (I have an POS logitec right now actually).



I was basically mocked by the support guy at Blizzard when I asked how to make the keyboard movement less jerky - he called me a 'keyboard turner' and said that most people who are FPS fans have a hard time with the switch to movement with the mouse. He's a douche for mocking me, but he's also right. I am so used to the upside down T of 'esdf' for movement that I am having a hard time adjusting. I am hoping that a better mouse will help. I am also open to a joystick, but not a game pad as that takes both hands.



So what is the best mouse (or joystick) for gaming? Oh, and let me rephrase... the best, economical mouse (or joystick) for gaming. By economical, I mean less than a benjamin.



Thanks y'all!

      Hi, nice people!
      As some of you (hopefully) know by now, i've been very active these days in this community, trying to help building momentum for AMD hackintoshing, so we AMD users (again, hopefully) someday manage to have at least the opportunity to have an up-to-date OSX install (yeah, i'm talking about Mountain Lion).
      Meanwhile, i decided to downgrade from the handicapped Lion installation thad i used to have, since it was 32-bit only and some key features of Lion are 64-bit, to Snow Leopard, which i could get full-featured. All that was a smooth and somehow enjoyable process, and now i have 10.6.8, running stable with 64-bit user land, all peripherals working (well, almost all of them, as you'll see) and sleep working flawlessly.
      Seriously, it could be a really awesome build, and my Geekbench score in fact exceeds anything i got running Windows 7. But, as has been proven for so long, in hackintoshes, specially AMD ones, the sweet always comes with the sour. I told you that my peripherals are almost working, and i say working because of my nVidia Geforce G210. Yes, it got QE/CI. Yes, all three outs are working nicely, and even HDMI audio worked oob. The card is CUDA compatible, and CUDA drivers are up-to-date. Movies play smoothly. What is making the trouble?
      Not all of them. Only the most cool ones. Oh, i can play App Store's Jet Dudes, Lep's World or U-Boot silly windowed games, and full screen games like Forest Zombies or Battle Monkeys. Ultraviolet Dawn appears to work either windowed or full-screen. Uberstrike also didn't give me any issues untill now. But games like Amnesia, Trine 2, Jason vs Zombies and the supposedly low profile Kindom Chronicles are a certainty to make my whole system crash. Heck, even the said Forest Zombies did it at least once, as well as Crazy Monster Truck Escape a couple of times.
      the symptoms are the following: after some minutes into the game, usually less than ten, the game will crash giving me a black screen with no sound, and my HDD led starts to show no activity. The system don't reboot or give me a panic, just stay frozen like that. My only option is a hard reboot.
      At first, i thought the problem could be related to those games being 32-bit, since they used to work with my 32-bit only 10.7.4 with no issues, and i had to use the amd_insn_patcher to get my 10.6.8 to run both 32-bit and 64-bit user mode. I could be an instability inherent to the patch, so i tried to boot with -legacy flag, but the crashes continued to happen.
      Investigating a solution, i tried using other combinations of audio and video resolution. Changed for VGA and DVI monitors and tried both my built-in Via Audio and my KX-driven Soundblaster to no improvement. In a last ditch attempt, i simply removed CUDA drivers and re-tried all of the other troubleshootin methods i'd already used, to no avail.
      Then i remembered to look in the Console logs. Funny i waited so long to do it, since it's the first thing i myself recommend for anyone. Anyway, the common messages i found at the times the crashes happened were these two: KGCErrorFailure (always) and CGSGetWindowBounds: Invalid connection (sometimes).
      I google a lot, and, when i found i was running in circles with it and couldn't find a solution for my specific situation, since these error messages seems to be also related to other issues, i decided to bring it here, in the hopes someone could point me a light at the end of the tunnel here.
      Here's an excerpt of my last WindowServer log at the exact time the system crashed for the last time (testing with Amnesia.app):

      I finished installing OS X 10.7 Lion a few weeks ago. Things have been going well until recently, as when I play Java games (like Minecraft) and ejecting the drive using the key on the Apple USB Aluminum Keyboard, kernel panic might occur (It does not always happen).
      The message shows that com.apple.ATIRadeonX3000 is the culprit. Attached is a screenshot I took when the Kernel Panic happened.
      My computer configuration:
      Intel Core i7-930 2.8GHz
      Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Rev 2.0 (FF BIOS)
      6GB of RAM
      Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5850 1GB
      Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much!
