Hi there, for a good gaming mouse, there are a few brands to start with, but my advance, or before-hand tip is, any gaming mouse would be good, once you shape it to something comfortable to you, just don't buy a mouse because of its looks, and then complain when you find that it's not comfortable or compatible to what you are using it for.

Let's start on the Razer Brand
Razer Krait - $42
- built as the entry-level mouse for Razer currently, since Razer Viper and Razer Boomslang(The older series doesn't exist anymore), it is a good mouse or otherwise, "sufficient" mouse for games like DotA, or RTS based games. It works well with FPS games as well if you are the low-sensitivity type of user. It has a DPI of 1200.

Razer Diamondback(Normal/Plasma)(Pricing differ on the versions) - $56 - $69
- built as the "popular mid-range gaming mouse" for most FPS gamers, such as Counterstrike 1.6 and Counterstrike source, it is still very popular in Singapore, and very sellable. It features a DPI of 1600 and works well on DotA if you can get used to the sensitivity.

Razer Diamondback 3G - $74 - $79
- An improved version of the original Diamondback, it uses a "3G" sensor, and comes with a DPI of 1800. Similarly it has the same specifications as the Deathadder in terms of mouse-technical specifications, and would be a great choice if you are a user playing FPS games alot, and is quite a popular choice as well, if you want to upgrade from a old Razer mouse to a new one, yet keeping a budget of let's say $80.

Razer DeathAdder - $79 - $89 ($74 at Computex Computing Services a.k.a Ah Lim's Shop in UPPR SRNGN Shopping Centre)
- The current most popular choice in Singapore for a Razer Mouse, the Deathadder was released not long ago and came to be the most popular mouse worldwide of the Razer brand, it is the prime choice for a lot of professional, competitive and casual gamers. Since your budget is $100, this would be the prime choice I recommend to you.

2nd Mouse Company : Logitech Brand
Logitech MX518 - $54 - $58 (can be even at $50 and below if you bargain or look at different shops)
- The Logitech Gaming Mouse with a DPI of 1600, and a 2nd version with a DPI of 1800, it is a very popular mouse if you have a preference for macro buttons on your mouse. The number of macro buttons you can configure is guaranteed to satisfy your needs, and is a top choice for those who wants to get a mouse with "on-the-fly" sensitivity, meaning you can easily change your sensitivity based on DPI, just with a few clicks of a button in-game or out-of-game as well. It is very suited for FPS and RTS gamers as a mid-range, good build, mid-priced gaming mouse.

Logitech G3 : $89
- A gaming mouse with the design of the G1 Gaming Mouse, its predecessor, it is a very standard yet excellent gaming mouse with a DPI of 2000, and very competitive against the Razer Copperhead, which is not a very good Razer Mouse I would recommend. The design follow a general mouse shape, and is not like the Razer series Mouses, which focus on a very unique shape for some of the mouses under the branding.

Let's look at the big guns, Microsoft
- Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 - $44.50 - $69.00
- a.k.a the "legendary gaming mouse" for professional gamers, it is a product that made Microsoft extremely popular in the gaming department franchise. With only a DPI of 400, it was very suitable for FPS gamers who play on low-sensitivity, yet seek a high level of comfort while using the mouse for gaming. I highly recommend that you put this mouse on 2nd priority if you are interested, or if you plan to go competitive for any PC games, this is a mouse of the prime choice and also at an affordable range.

If you noticed, Microsoft focused heavily on ergonomics, or the "comfort" level of the users in the Microsoft Hardware, and proved to be very successful in their products.

Maybe I will write down a budget list of those who pursue gaming equipments easily for referencing.

Mouse
$50 & Below
- Razer Krait : $42 - $45
- Logitech MX518 : $40 - $55
- Microsoft IE 3.0 a.k.a Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 : $44.50 - $69.00

$70 & Below
- Razer Diamondback - $55
- Razer Diamondback Plasma - $65 - $69
- Microsoft IE 3.0 - $44.50 - $69.00
- Everglide t-1000 Gaming Mouse - $60

$90 & Below
- Razer Deathadder(My Prime Recommendation) - $74 - $89
- Razer Diamondback 3G - $69 - $79
- Logitech G3 Gaming Mouse - $80 - $89

$120 & Below
- Razer Lachesis - $119
- Logitech G5 Gaming Mouse - $109 - $119

$150 & Below
- Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse - $129
- Logitech G9 - $139 - $149

Are there gaming - grade mouses that may be coming to Singapore soon that I should wait for ?

The answer is Yes.

A company called Steelseries has manufactured Steelseries Ikari, a optical and a laser version of the mouse. It has high recommendations from pro-gamers if you want to compete competitively in PC games.

the cnc3 bundle looks very attractive, considering the SRP for the original death adder is $89..
