The mouse along with a keyboard and monitor is one of the most used parts of a computer. As such it is important to get a quality mouse that supports the hand (and wrist) well.

Windows Mouse acceleration fix

Disabling mouse acceleration will make your mouse feel incredibly responsive and accurate. It's essential for getting a K/D more than 1 in any video game, and even general browsing will be a lot faster.

Download the zip and unpack, then enable the .reg file for the screen DPI you use(which should never be more than 100%), restart, then use the test file in the unpacked folder to make sure it is disabled. Some terrible mouse firmware uses acceleration to have a higher polling rate, so be mindful of settings.

A large guide, often criticized for the lack of information and inclusion of the Logitech G500, due to a poor sensor.
