i just build my pc yesterday and with it, i ordered the Eagle Touch wireless keyboard mouse combo. It looked like a great deal, for like 35 bucks. I set every thing up, installed all the drivers for it, and tried it out. The movment seemed a bit shaky when i was using it, but its hard to notice. When i installed joint operations that came w/ my 6600gt, the mouse movment seemed was SO bad. if u move the mouse a little, nothing will happen. If u move it alot, then we see some movement. SO my question is, are these types of mouses, that are wireless and optical, good for gaming? Or should i downgrade to a wired ball mouse?

I'm assuming it is optical. What surface are you using it on? I find that using optical mice on most mousepads make the movement really shaky and junk. Therefore I don't use a mousepad and just use my bare wood desktop. You'll find that the optical will pick up the most minute crevices and react accordingly. And for future reference, stick with Logitech keyboards and mice. They are far better quality and don't disappoint.

That's what my wireless mouse does when it's battery is low. Make sure the battery is charged well. And also, make sure the reciever is'n't blocked by something.

Wireless is the way to go for gaming. A good set-up is not only more accurate the a ball mouse, but free's you up to place the keyboard and mouse where ever you want to.

If it has a charger you have to charge it fully before use. Otherwise I suggest you turn up the sensitivity and do some mouse tweaks. Thats pretty cheap for a keyboard/mouse combo

Yeah make sure it is charged up but remember you get what you pay for.

I second Adam on the mouse pad theory! I personally had an experience with that! I had a holographic mouse pad and when I switched to an optical mouse the movement was so horrible I was nearly returning the mouse when I realized its the surface of the pad, I wrapped the pad in white paper and mouse worked great!
