Default New Mouse

Im looking for a new mouse, because the one I have is horrible. Im looking for something really cheap, MAX is $25, and I don't want to go spending my life savings on something Im only going to be using until late August. I want something with more than 3 buttons, (5 preferably). I need it to be optical, or laser (Doesn't matter). AND I NEED IT TO BE SMOOTH, I WANT IT TO FLOOOOOOW, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. But really, thats important.

I need a mouse
Smooth
5 buttons
optical/laser (no ball, or trackball)
Less than $25
Visually appealing

I have found these mice, What do you guys think?

I highly recommend getting a Logitech mouse.

An MX310 should be pretty good for the price:

If you want a very good mouse though, you can't go wrong with an MX518 or G5:

MX518 over the G5. The new G5 caused my palm to sweat a lot more, and the texture feels weird. The MX518 is completely smooth on the other hand.

If there is a Microcenter around, you can get those MS mice for 12.99. Or if you don't mind shipping:
http://microcenter.com/single_produc...uct_id=0256804

I've used all sorts of gaming mice, and I keep coming back to this one lol. Best mouse ever IMO.

Just found this one if you like something a bit newer:

Cheap 5 button gaming mouse with some good reviews, I haven't seen any bad but there might be some.

If you want the mouse to be smooth, then it needs to have a sufficiently high DPI. I have had MS mice that have had problems (if I moved them too fast then the tracking couldn't keep up and the mouse would go haywire). I suggest a Razer or a Logitech and a DPI over 800.
