Posted already here but DeathAdder is very good, I'm a user. Strictly by objective measurements laser mice do suck if you are the kind of player that will push the sensor to its limits; i.e. low sensitivty, they will fail to track much sooner as movement speed ramps up compared to IR.
High DPI is unimportant if you use anything less than 1:1 sensitivity you are interpolating the signal anyway. (1:1 is 1"dot" = 1pixel of on screen movement, for razer mice this requires max driver sens and default notch 6 in windows, with acceleration removed) I use my DA at 450dpi 500Hz 1:1 input for example, in windows this translates to 4.26" of mouse movement for the cursor to travel from the left edge to the right edge of my 1920pixel wide desktop.
If you are not a low sensitivity player or using 1:1 mouse input then it really doesn't matter, get whatever mouse feels the best to you.
