Man, how long does it take to get good aiming with a mouse?

I started PC gaming about a month ago and I'm still having issues with my mouse aiming. I've tried to lower the sensetivity but I'm still not very accurate. So far, I've beaten Metro 2033, Darkness 2, half of Deus Ex: HR (which I've already beaten on 360), and now I'm playing Medal of Honor. I've been sticking to first person games to get use to the keyboard and mouse and I feel like I'm getting good with the keyboard but I think I'd have more accuracy using a 360 controller which is weird since everyone says controllers aren't nearly as accurate as a mouse and keyboard for FPS's.

Lower your sensitivity and it shouldn't take long.

Try out TF2. A year later and I can say I would never play a console FPS ever again.

I'd recommend a gamepad as analog sticks give you superior 360 degree movement and work your thumbs for pinpoint accuracy with the precision of splitting an atom.

It varies per person - if you've *never* used it before, I think average to become comfortable is around 3-4 weeks based on most comments I've seen. As for how you're doing, the mouse *is* more accurate, but you may still just be more comfortable with a 360 pad.

I go high DPI with low in game sensitivity. Works for me.

Lower your sensitivity even more. Most people have it set far too high, IMO. You should be moving more than like an inch for a 360 spin.

Try practicing on fast paced twitch shooters like Unreal Tournament or even Call of Duty.
