Buying the best gaming mouse your budget can stretch to can make a huge impact on your gaming in general. After all, these specially-designed mice come with gaming-specific features, such as fast polling rates (which ensures they are incredibly responsive) and additional buttons, which can really give you the competitive edge.

The best gaming mice should also be comfortable to use, so you don't risk getting repetitive strain injury (RSI) after long gaming sessions, and they should ideally be ambidextrous, so you can use them no matter if you're right- or left-handed.
