As im quite new to the gaming world i would like to read what other quake players mouse preferences are. Iv been using the same settings for months now but its starting to feel uncomfortable as im obviously getting better. Iv found i struggle when fighting in close proximity to my opponent. I find they can get behind me quite easily and cause alot of damage before i manage to spin around and locate them. Hope you get what im trying to say there. im shit at putting stuff into words on forums like this .

My settings are 400 dpi and sensitivity of 3, i have tried using mouseaccel 0.1 but my acc drops while using it.
anyway iv got a new mouse so iv got the chance of changing all this. the lowest dpi the mouse can go is 800 though.

any advice?
what settings do you guys use?
