There are a hundred different gaming mice for all different types of players. Some do all types of PC gaming, and need a general-purpose mouse. Others are heavy RPGers and real-time-strategy enthusiasts and want a lot of buttons and configuration options. Most PC gamers play first-person shooters and need a good configurable mouse with adjustable sensitivity.
Gaming mice can be expensive, though, and it really sucks to purchase an expensive mouse just to find out it wasn’t as good as you thought. Going through any LAN party, you will see the the kids that are using their parents’ old computer and using business-class or generic mice. For those that need a gaming mouse but don’t have a lot of money, the NZXT Avatar S gaming mouse may be right up your alley.
The Avatar S mouse has been out for a while, but still holds strong because it is one of the cheapest gaming-grade mice you can find. The Avatar S replaces the more expensive Avatar gaming mouse (review here).
