2400 DPI? Holy ****... how can you play with such a high sensitivity? I play with 1200 - 1600 and it's really on the edge of 'controllable' :OO
my old mouse maxed out at 8200 and I just used that all the time xD

My new one maxes out at 2500 and I had to get used to that.

You need to be able to make small movements and still get a fast reaction when you're constrained on space, higher DPI allows for that.

@Vapora
Still looking for a new mouse? I might be able to recommend one.

Which is why large mousepads are king when it comes to increasing accuracy.

If accuracy is a primary concern in your usage then NEVER use the maximum DPI of your mouse. Those numbers are pushing the hardware to its limits, often producing very poor results. For perfect tracking you should be using 800 or 1600DPI, depending on the mouse sensor (3200 is serviceable on the best sensors).

You mentioned that you were using palm-grip, correct?

I tried turning the DPI lower (800-1000) with my old mouse and I can't move my hand enough in my current set-up for that to be workable, it's just too slow for the amount of space I have. If I had any other choice, I'd do something else, believe me.

Well, you should usually stick to doublings (X*2^d) of 400 (like 800, 1600 and 3200) on mice to ensure maximum compatibility with native DPI. In your case this would be 1600. The weird max DPI of your mouse does throw me off a bit tho. Yours could be using steps of 250, but it's pretty rare; I've only seen one mouse doing that (Logitech G100).
