Mouse dpi on pc
« on: 03:04 PM - 04/22/15 »
Have been using my xim on pc but now I have a joystick on my orbweaver so I don't need to use my xim anymore. What would be a good dpi starting point with a G502?

I believe I use 1000hz on PC. And yes, that low lol. A lot of pro players use 400. High DPI for PC gaming is mostly useless. There are a few scenarios where it makes sense, but most games cannot take advantage of the higher DPI, as the in game sensitivity doesn't go low enough.

For example: on CSGO, with 800 dpi, my in game sensitivity is still only 0.65. With the same DPI on CS 1.6, I use the lowest sensitivity (1), and it's still too fast. Forcing me to use 400.

I use 400 DPI for CS:GO and it has helped me out greatly. Using the Razer Blackwidow 2013.

400-800 is generally the most popular within competitive shooters. 6/11 windows sensitivity, then you adjust in game sensitivity to your desired amount.

I use 800 personally.

toggle 400-800 depending on the weapon
