What is the max DPI you can use before it becomes uncontrollable for you?

For me, I found out that after 6200 DPI, I can't maintain sufficient precision while moving my mouse at normal speeds, so that's where I'm capped at as a user.

How about you folks?

Mine is currently at 8300 DPI but I have the control panel settings turned all the way down.

So I have no idea what would be my theoretical "limit".

No clue. I used 3600 for a while with the in-game sensitivity down low. Then I realized a high DPI isn't really that great and made my hands cramp when trying to pull off precise movements. So then I switched to 450, and my in-game sensitivity is still relatively low. Movement is a lot more fluid now.

I don't know my mouse has 4 settings and I keep it at the third highest. It's kind of sensitive I guess.

Anything that's above 1800. I currently have mine set on 800dpi.

i can't go much higher than 1200. It blows my mind how people can play at these high settings and be accurate, I keep my DPI around 800 and have in game setting at 1 sometimes lower.
