I have no idea. Whatever the middle setting of the logitec G5 is <_< I don't like super high sensitivity.

If you have sensitivity low and DPI low, it takes like 2 seconds to turn and do anything in games, so I can't imagine anyone can play like that and be better off.

The minimum I will use nowadays, depending on the resolution of the display (1366x768 for my Edge Pro) is usually around 2000 and sensitivity at medium in games. With my 2560x1440 monitor I keep it around 4000.


Low DPI/sensitivity forces you to make bigger movements with the mouse in order to stay fast. The good thing about this is that it also makes the really small movements (like lining up a shot from 500m) bigger. This is good because it gives you a larger window to move in. At really high DPI/sensitivity, a person would need to barely adjust to line up shots like these. This is bad because it can put a lot of stress on the hand and cause cramping.

Low DPI: Good for sniping, will need training to be good for close quarters
High DPI: Good for shotguns and stuff, will cause cramping at long range, and training won't help


Well yeah, of course I know instances where it's better to have low DPI, but I was meaning on a regular basis or for average use...most gamers aren't always sniping or needing low DPI unless they want to be at a disadvantage, or they just suck at precision.

Let us assume that for the sake of assumption that I am always right.

No idea, but when I got my Rat 7 I noticed due to my style of gameplay I got more kills in fps as before I would go to aim and be a little off as If I was any slower I would be killed.

As far as windows settings, I have the mouse movement speed maxed with enhanced precision on.

If there is acceleration, I usually disable it or set it to very low.

So I guess the only sensitivity I adjust is on the mouse driver side.

It's something I've been accustomed to since every machine I use has the exact same settings.

The acceleration, I'm guessing.

If there is a serperate acceleration bar anywhere, I disable / minimize it, the only acceleration I'm used to is the "Enhanced Precision Pointer"
