The difference between a good mouse and a great mouse lies in the littlest details that the manufacturers put into their products. On the outset, you wouldn’t really be able to tell which mouse is better if you erase the logos off of 2 sets of gaming mice placed side by side one another. For all you know, they might look very alike. In fact, these days, most mice have the flashiest designs, all riddled with plenty of programmable buttons, laser sensors and other features commonly associated with high-end gear.
The point I’m trying to make is that a gaming mouse accords to you much greater customization choices, not only in terms of the DPI levels but also setting the functions that each button on the mouse provides. Wireless gaming mice of any decent quality (according to this source) will usually have a minimum of 2 additional buttons. One on each side or both on its left (if you’re a right hand user). There are certain types of mouse like the Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse that have over 15 buttons on its side, but I’m not into those. If you’re any good, you’d be executing most of your in-game commands with your keyboard rather than your mouse.
