If it works reliably at 1000Hz, you want 1000Hz.  Basically, you want the highest that works reliably.  Some mice allow higher settings but then jitter about, which is obviously not ideal.  So use the highest that works without issues.

This will reduce the time between your hand's motion and the game's interpretation by a small amount.  It's not a lot, but most people think it's still worth the bother of setting it up.  :)
