I'm sick and tired of games that have total crap acceleration or feel.

Is there a mouse out there that either by itself or with programmable drivers or software is HIGHLY tweakable and configurable to help over come many of todays games crappy mouse handling?

I think the Razer software could be what you are looking for. The software for my DeathAdder has a lot of settings - scroll speed, sensitivity, acceleration, win pointer speed, double click speed, individual x and y axis sensitivity, polling rate, and Dpi switching. It also has multiple profiles to support different settings. That the kind of stuff you are looking for?

Are you familiar with Logitech's Profiler joystick/gamepad software? In there you can adjust and override any games settings for linearity on the axis. And you can program any keyboard key combo with full recording and controllable timed repeat functions. For example, in a racing game I could not program the accel/decel to the gamepad axis in game. With Profiler I was able to program the in game keyboard accel/decel keys to the gamepad axis and it work amazingly well.

Does the Razer software do similar outstanding features?

For those with the feature, are 2 dpi sensitivity on the fly adjustments enough or is 3 more prefered?

I personally prefer 3, but it depends on the user.

I recommend the Logitech G-9 simply because of profiles and ability to store those on the mouse itself.

Seconded. Profiles are absolutely necessary for games such as F.E.A.R. 2, which stupidly do not allow you to bind anything other than the three primary mouse buttons.

Stopped at BB and bought a Steelseries Xai.

Mouse itself is very good but the software/driver, by my short experience and NewEgg feedback confirms, has major issues with glitches and lockups. Also I don't like the side buttons(all 4) positions at all, awkward to reach and use for my grip style it seems.

It's going back tomorrow and I may try the Logitech G500 (http://www.logitech.com/en-us/mice_pointers/mice/devices/5750) in exchange but I'm a lefty and not so sure how well it will work left handed????

the gigabyte m8000x. It what I use. It has a 4 dpi setting on the mouse and goes up to 6000dpi. Got it from newegg for $70 cdn. it uses MS drivers with gigabyte ghost software for fine tuning.

here is the link for the mouse:

G500 is very nice especially the button placement and comfort but it's going back to the store also because the software macro feature is too limited for my needs and its too heavy for my mousing preference.

My last try is the Sidewinder X3 (http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/gaming/productdetails.aspx?pid=104). Seems nice and good for lefty plus should be a light weight mouse.
