Choosing the best gaming mouse to buy can be a challenging task with a long list of options available in the market today. The choice depends whether you play FPS, MMO, or RTS. Then you have to consider whether a laser or optical mouse will be best. Gamers should also worry about dots per inch (DPI), wired or wireless, among others.

Here's a look at some of the best gaming mice available:

1. Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse

This gaming mouse packs in surface tuning calibration capabilities, which means that users are able to adjust the track settings of the laser to locate the perfect spot on the mouse pad surface they are using. Weighing 8.8 ounces, the G502 Proteus Core not only has adjustable laser tracking, but also controls balance and weight. It has 11 programmable buttons to make the execution of commands swift. It also has a DPI button, but this is located in a poor spot. The mouse may also feel a tad narrow if you have big hands.

Gamers can get the Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse for $79.99.

2. SteelSeries Sensei Pro Grade Laser

This gaming mouse may be an old horse but can still give competition to newbies. The laser-gaming mouse weighs just 3.5 ounces and uses a 32bit ARM processor that has an adjustable CPI range of 1 to 5700/ 11,400 DPCI.

The ExactSens enables users to have control over how quickly the pointer should move. Users also have options for color customization. The three separate zones i.e. the CPI indicator, the wheel and the back - on the mouse can be programmed separately as well by deploying the 16.8 million colors.

The Sensei Pro Grade Laser is available for Euro 89.99 (approximately $103).

3. Razer Naga MMO Gaming Mouse

Razer's Naga MMO gaming mouse is robust and the perfect ally for MMO games. It weighs 4.8 ounces and has a thumb grid with a dozen buttons to boot. This grid gives a user audio and tactile feedback. Every button is pressed with surety and the intuitive design of the mouse ensures that it fits easily in all hand sizes. The assignable hot keys are another plus and MMO fans who dislike using their keyboard for quick action execution will be happy with this mouse as it simplifies the gaming experience. However, the Naga MMO has sensitive mouse buttons so one needs to tread carefully.

Users can buy the Razer Naga for $79.99.

4. Mad Catz Office R.A.T

This futuristic looking mouse takes on board Bluetooth Smart (which offers faster connection) and is multi-platform compatible.

The Office R.A.T. can go up to a year on the battery that comes with the mouse. It also has 10 short cut buttons that can be programmed. Moreover, the mouse can adapt to your grip and it can work on practically any surface - including glass! The built-in USB Bluetooth dongle makes sure that the mouse is compatible with devices that do not have Bluetooth.

The Office R.A.T. sells for $99.99. 

5. Corsair Vengeance M65

Corsair's Vengeance M65 is a powerful mouse for first-person shooter (FPS) fans. This mouse is the perfect amalgamation of comfort meets affordability. It packs in intelligent FPS optimizations, eight programming buttons, as well as an 8200DPI sensor. Moreover, each button is not only distinct and big in size, but also positioned well. It also has Discrete X axis and Y axis DPI. The only downer is that it does not offer an option for left-handed play.

The Vengeance M65 can be purchased on Amazon for $93.99

6. Razer DeathAdder Chroma

Razer's DeathAdder Chroma is not only futuristic looking, but the mouse also packs in capabilities to match its design. The DeathAdder Chroma has a super comfortable grip - which is customizable - and does not complicate things with too many buttons, instead reveling in its simplicity. The mouse has optical laser tracking, which can be switched off when one lift's the mouse. It also has a 10,000 DPI optical sensor and five Hyperesponse buttons that can be programmed individually. However, this mouse is not ideal for those looking to play FPS and the lack of buttons may put some people off.

The Razer DeathAdder Chroma has a tag price of $69.99.
