Thanks man, appreciated.

Yes, that G5 is going to ROCK, seriously. I really, really wish it still had the two side buttons though :/

I hear you man. I only play CS, but I use the top one for Voice Chat and the bottom to bring up the buy menu.

I find it interesting that so many people can find so many uses for the side buttons on a mouse. My Intellimouse 4.0 has the 2 buttons both on the left side of the mouse and I use the back button to reload the the forward to bring up the buy menu. It's all what's important to you in a game and what you are used to but still interesting all the uses for one or two buttons.

Calm down on the pwnage speak damn it. You pwned me big time yesterday! All though, I ironically got a kill in on your ass once That made me smile! I played that server again last night when I got off work about 2 am and I oddly enough did well. My kill ratio was almost 1:1....more like 1:1.5 but better than the target practice I was when you and I played earlier! Got the 3700 in my A8V Deluxe and am going to test it out before I have to mail away the 6800 GT.

I'm playing CS since the early betas but I stopped playing few months ago because Valve keept changing the basic gameplay (Shield,Recoil,AWP Delay)
I dont like Steam and the amount of cheaters in CS. Source is too quiet and kinda boring. Now I'm playing Enemy Territory instead.

Regen, aye I agree with you. They changed a lot, but it's still fun. There *are* a lot of cheaters, but I hope to see that decrease as time goes by. There's also WAY too many Awpers, but w/e

Ender, I hear you. I want the G5 so bad, but without that button, that will screw up my game too =/

The keyboard! What's to say... it looks awesome, i'm one of those people who likes to have the latest stuff and boy is that being added to my collection!
I've currently got an MX1000 and was seriously impressed with it - the only problem I have is the logitech logo on the top which has now rubbed off.
Let's hope that doesn't happen here
