Ever since posting my top 10 of the best gaming mice there’s been a very mixed reaction about my choices. In what seems like a controversial decision I placed mostly 3200dpi+ mice at the top, and that seems to have provoked some strong reactions from gamers.

So, it’s time for a poll. What level of dpi do you use on your gaming mouse? Are you a fan of higher dpi and the extra level of sensitivity it brings, or do you prefer lower dpi which brings higher accuracy at the expense of response?

I’ll start things off – I like my mice to fall somewhere between 2000 and 3200dpi. It partially depends on the game – I like the fast movement of higher dpi in a FPS, but I find strategy games are better suited to 2000dpi. So to compromise for the sake of the poll and because I play FPS slightly less than othr ‘slower’ games, I’ll go for 2001-2400dpi.

So come on then, cast your vote and, if you feel like it, leave a comment to explain your choice.
