    Those of us with Razer Mice and Synapse probably already know what DPI (Dots Per Inch) is. If not you can set in in the performance tab.

    So my question is what DPI do you game at?
    I have a Razer Naga Epic Chroma, and I usually have it set to 3200 DPI. In some shooters I will set it to 1,000 DPI or 2,000 DPI because of the fact that I some times make small movements out of excitement when things get really cereal.

    CSGO I play at the recommended 800 DPI.

    I use 7k DPI cuz I don't move my mouse around so much, and I'm on 4k

    I forgot about resolution messing with DPI. Is there a big difference between the mouse on 1080p and 4k?

    I play at 600 dpi (used to play at 400) for cs go. In other to compansate, i had to get a new mousepad. By playing at a lower dpi, i greatly increase my accuracy

    In FPS lower DPI is better, contrary to what your instincts tell you. A good dpi for me is around 800.

    In mobas im around 3200 so pretty quick.

    1,000 seems to be a pretty good balance for me. But like you I prefer higher DPI for stuff that isn't pin point accuracy dependent.

    I'm using 3500 DPI on my 15.6" laptop.
    If playing game i might change to higher DPI.

    actually to be honest, each fps has their own sets of dpi. For example, fast pace shooters like call of duty, its better to have higher dpi as you need to move around quickly and find kills but for cs go, its a rather slower pace where you would prefer to take your time to find the enemy position and then kill them. Each fps has their own mechanics, some would need a higher dpi while some would be more suited to a lower dpi

    But I could be wrong, so please do correct me
  11. 2400 DPI with a 22 inch at 1080. I used to keep it around 1600 and upon slowly increasing it I noticed a almost immediate increase in the death I was bringing to my opponents in bo2. Took too much mouse to spin me 180 to kill the guy behind me, now it only takes a little flick.

    I love 3500 X-axis, 2100 Y-axis.
  13. 1080 for CS:GO (because I use a lower resolution), 1600 for everything else. I just lower my in game sensitivity that way I don't have to change dpi often.

    My naga is at 3900 dpi for normal uses and for most of my games.
    For fps like csgo i have it at 400 dpi (with 1 in game sensitivity)
