I just got a Logitech G700 and I'd like to use about 2000 DPI for normal use so I can fly across the screen without too much movement.

The mouse always reads at the same DPI, it just lies to the computer when you set it to a lower setting.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

The question isn't really will it live longer, but rather will it go to hell for telling so many lies?

Can't you adjust the cursor speed in the Windows mouse settings?

yes, but that's generally a bad idea if you want precision because of the way it works (it works bad)
