What DPI do you use with your mouse?

I just bumped down to 1800.

G700, usually keep it between 3000-4000 on a 2560x1440 monitor as anything below that feels a bit slow. On my Razer Edge I keep it around 2500 and it's good.

Mouse DPI ~500 (zowie FK, settings say it is 450, but it feels like more).

Windows setting 6/11,

Games:
-Counter strike GO, 1.75 ingame setting.
-Battlefield 4, 5% ingame setting.

Crazy high DPI on modern laser sensors is pretty much pointless at the resolutions that most people play at. Some are under the impression that a higher DPI setting makes them better, while usually, what happens is the exact opposite and they can not aim worth a damn because they can not handle their sensitivity settings.


At 1920x1080 if you can't aim within half a second to a 10x10 pixel area with ~3200 dpi then I don't know what's wrong with you.

And if you can do that with 500 dpi then your hand is moving really really freaking fast and really really far for no reason at all that I can just twitch 2cm to accomplish. Either that or you're adjusting some other setting to make up for the lack of DPI.

While DPI may not exactly equal speed, it does, in the case of many things, equal amount of area on screen moved per mouse movement. I was fine with 800dpi mouses also when I was just playing Starcraft: Broodwar and fighting games that didn't require mouse speed and with resolutions usually in the 640x480 range or something. But now, 800dpi across 1920x1080? Yeah, no thanks. I like my elbow to still be attached after a few hours of gaming.

3600. I'll drop it down to 900/800 (i'm not sure which?) for games that don't let me lower my sensitivity enough to be comfortable.

g602, i have it set to the max of 2500DPI, i have yet to need to lower it, though i haven't been playing any fps's since i got it

You can play at those settings just fine. It is really not that extreme, for example here is a video of NIP's GeT_RiGhT playing at those settings. As you can see, turning 180 degrees takes about two moderately long sweeps.

Here is someone who plays at an even lower sensitivity setting, but still does so quite successfully (also, just to give an example in BF4 as opposed to just CS). You can see him play a little later in the video, video is more clear than the previous one.

Yes, I realize it is quite different, and more intensive than the way some people use their mouse, but it is not true to say that there are no unique benefits to playing at these sensitivities. If there were not , you would not see people do it all the time in almost any competitive shooter at the higher levels of competition. I am not saying that you should just mimic what the top players are doing. You should do what feels good to you, but it is good for people to know that the assumption that you need high DPI to have good performance is false. Also, they should know that it is ok to lower your mouse sensitivity if you have difficulty aiming well on the sensitivity you are on.

4000 on current mouse
anything below 3200 feels laggy to me
