The mouse is one of the most important accessories for any gaming PC. It’s what you’ll use the most to interact with software and games (ones that don’t require a gamepad at least) and having a pointer you enjoy using will make for a more compelling in-game experience. We’ve rounded up the best gaming mice available today and our favorite pick is the Razer Viper, the best gaming mouse you can buy.
Best Overall: Razer Viper
Razer’s latest Viper mouse is incredible. Not only do you have mechanical switches for your main clickers — yes, similar switches to those found in a mechanical keyboard — but Razer also threw in a 5G optical sensor for good measure. This combination results in incredibly accurate movement detection and button actuation.
The mouse itself weighs in at around 69g and attaches to your PC using Razer’s Speedflex Cable, which may sound like some marketing gimmick, but is actually significantly better than other cables out there in terms of quality. The only real drawback we found with this wired mouse is the inability to detach the cable. This would make it easier to transport to LAN events and allow for replacing of the cable should it be damaged.
