Right DPI and Polling rate for mouse?

Hello,I recently bought a Deathadder 2013,Now I'm confusing that which DPI should I switch to (I heard some people said that lower DPI means better accuracy) I tried to switch to 400 but It's too slow and I have a small mouse pad.And polling rate is 1000hz,Is it well ?
My screen resolution is 1280 x 1024.
Thanks

I have a DA 2013, qck+ mousepad from Steelseries, 900 dpi, .7x ingame sens. Polling rate at 500hz I think, but 1000hz should work just fine.



Get a bigger mouse pad and move your arm more.

Thanks for that tip

The best DPI in terms of tracking is 1300 in DA 2013, but these are minor differences.

Lower sensitivity (not necessarily DPI) - better aiming accuracy.

900 dpi and the resolution you mentioned are pretty good. I wouldn't call it low sens, but medium setting. And it's ok if your mousepad is not big.

I play 1366x768 (playfield is 1024x768) with 400 dpi and it's already very slow, so keep gimmesoup's settings.

Remember not to change osu! or windows sensitivity and tick the precision off in control panel.

1000mhz is the fastest rate on the market, making the latency 1ms only, so it's ok

If you have a mouse with adjustable DPI, you should only be using 1.0x in-game (otherwise it'll affect your mouse's precision). Polling rate depends on your CPU; I've had stuttering in some games that was caused solely by my use of 1000Hz (on my ultrabook) but it should be the best setting if this isn't a problem for you. Otherwise, just stick to 500Hz.
DPI is mainly personal preference. I'd generally recommend somewhere between 400 to 1000dpi (I used 450dpi at 1366x768, and I think I'm comfortable with 670dpi since my switch to 1600x900. My mouse has weird DPI steps). I think most players use 400 or 800dpi, but I've seen a couple of high-ranked players using settings like 1800dpi so using a higher DPI isn't completely out of the question.

True, but something to also consider is how your mouse handles higher DPI. Some mice start throwing "fake" data at higher DPI, leading to inaccuracy.

Only way to know that for sure is to dig up some information on the sensor I believe, but I'm pretty sure you'd also be able to notice.

My GIGABYTE Force M7 mouse was 1000Hz polling, and I used 800 DPI. I believe anything higher than 1600 DPI had the fake data thing (there's a word for it that starts with "i"). I could only increase it in steps of 400 though, between 400 and 3200 DPI. Windows and osu! sensitivity were set at default (6/11 and 1.0x).

For pro mouses i think the best is to use 500Hz polling rate, coz 1000hz in usb 2.0 not supported well and it cut it...so then you play on mouse it feels like you fighting against the mouse(pulls the mouse). But for example on X7 A4tech polling rate 1000hz(in fact lower ~950 i think) so there is no cut of rate. For this type of mouse use 1000hz)

Sorry if this is a necropost, (Although I'm fairly confident this isn't) but I heard that the native DPI on the DA2013 is 1800, not 1300. Where did you hear about the optimal dpi being 1300?

native dpi isn't necessarily the optimal dpi.

I understand that, but the native dpi usually does do quite well.

I'm not questioning this, but I'm still curious as to where he got this information.

My bad. I've been lied to. I've done some more in-depth research myself instead of trusting random people.

Seems like DA2k13's tracking is more or less the same whatever the DPI is. Though I'd still recommend native one or 900.

SiLviA uses 1000dpi with 800x600 resolution and he seems to play fine :^)

I bought the deathadder 2013 around 1 month ago and I have tried many different DPI settings (400~1800), different mousepads (Steelseries qck+, Razer Goliathus)a nd of course I don't use mouse precision (I have always had it off), I have tried using MarkC's mouse fix etc, but I have to say that this mouse doesn't feel all that great for Osu!, it feels somewhat accurate, but not THAT accurate.

I actually regret buying it and after doing a lot of research I realized that I should have bought a tablet or a Logitech G400 or a WMO/IME for Osu! :(.

a DA2013 is fine for osu!, just kinda big, whatchu talkin bout

SiLviA's 800x600 was only for this and maybe few more maps. He normally uses 1024x768 playfield.

And his mouse sucks balls

playing on low resolutions can help to develop more precise muscle memory
@thread im using ~450 (zowie fk so it's not exact 450) and 1000 hz

Did you turn off mouse acceleration in the control panel mouse settings? If not, then do so. I've recently got the DA2013 and had no acceleration at all while doing my tests. I've been able to aim almost as good as with tablet within playing for a few hours.
(600 DPI @ 1280x800. Equals 900 DPI @ 1920x1200. Having the control panel mouse speed at 6/11 and osu! ingame at 1.0x.)

1000Hz should be the best polling rate if your PC manages to keep up. If you experience stuttering in your mouse movement, try using a lower polling rate.
DPI completely depends on what mouse you are using (how good it is at a certain DPI) and on where your preferences are.

Everyone says his mouse sucks even though they never used it or know anything about the sensor in it. :I
It probably does, but the ergonomics on it is amazing.
People just assume it sucks since he adjust his hands a lot, but it could just be habit. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But, it's hard to know for sure since it's so hard to find an optical Pop Grast for me to try. :V
