I've been considering purchasing a new mouse for gayming and I wanted to know which one the majority would recommend. I've been considering the logitech mx518, intellimouse explorer 3.0 and the razer deathadder. I've been kind of leaning towards the razer mouse due to it's ridiculous presentation (certificate of authenticity what the fuck). If it matters I like to play the following games, QW,Q3,CS1.6,Half life AG, dod:s and hl2dm.

At the moment though I'm stuck with using a ballmouse so anything would be better but what would be the best buy? Also, is a pad mandatory as well? If so what is the best suggestion, looking for a small pad and not too pricey
