Best Cheap PC Gaming Mice for Any Budget in 2017

1 of 11

Tired of that clunky mouse that came bundled with your system? Upgrading to a gaming-quality model can create a radical change in your experience -- whether you prefer shooters, MOBAs, strategy games, or anything in between.

When perusing options for a gaming mouse, you should be on the lookout for high DPI, high click lifespan, and at least some cool bells and whistles in terms of lighting and extra buttons. Wireless is nice, of course, but at that point you'll see the price skyrocket in most instances.

Here we're rounding up some of the absolute best mice you can buy without dropping a whole lot of cash. For our purposes, we're going with anything under $65 as "cheap," with the mice here ranging from a very budget-friendly $7.99 all the way up to higher end models at $61.99.

Each mouse is listed in order of price, from lowest to highest, with five mice specifically under $30 for those with less to spend, as well as handful in the $50-$60 range that offer extremely high end options without getting into absurd triple-digit pricing. 

Keep in mind that these prices will fluctuate over time and between retailers as sales come and go -- so you may need to search around to find the best deal.
