Mouse With 3 Buttons And A Scroll Wheel

I need to find a mouse that has 3 buttons and a scroll wheel. I do not want one where the scroll wheel is meant to be the 3rd button. I need 3 actual buttons and also a scroll wheel (and if that happens to be a button that is ok i guess). There is some software i use that really needs a middle/3rd button, but it is impractical, annoying, uncomfortable, etc to use the wheel as a button i need to press alot. Any ideas?

Mouse Buttons Non Functional After 5 Or 10 Minutes

This past couple of days i've been reformatting and re-installing windows and tweaking my partition sizes. However, yesterday evening, after finishing loading up windows xp and in the middle of loading my programs my mouse buttons just stopped working for no apparent reason. The cursor movement works just fine but the buttons are non responsive. I reformated and reinstalled windows again this morning thinking everything will be fine but low and behold during my program load up the buttons packed up again after about 5 or 10 minutes. Any ideas?

Mapped / Assigned Mouse Buttons On Logitech Mx5x0

A friend and i were arguing about what 'should' be mapped / assigned to the different buttons on our logitech mx5x0 mice. I personally have the left back thumb to double click, front to minimize all, scroll wheel click is alt+f4, button behind the scrollwheel is auto scroll down and the one behind that is restore all, with the front button being mapped to backspace. I use basically the same thing for gaming but when world of warcraft comes out i'll probably make a specific set for it. When i had a 5 button ms intellimouse i had mapped keys much the same way, double click, close, and show/hide desktop.

It's odd, 2 days ago the ms razer habu mouse dpi on-the-fly buttons stopped working. Also the 2 side-backlite lights stopped working. And the pointer is all shaking, low dpi i guess. I uninstalled drivers now the mouse is fully lit-up. Problem is i can't get my dpi buttons to work. Anyone has any suggestion?

Whats Bottlenecking Me ?

I'm using farcry as a benchmark and it just doesn't seem to be going at it's full capacity. I'm wondering why parts of my ground are blacked out, colors seem way to bright and weird. The water doesn't reflect like i've seen screen shots of it. I'm wondering what i can do to boost my performance on farcry. Having a 6800 running my system i have high expectations so it would be great if anyone could get back to me on what a easy fix would be (cheap too would be awesome)

I'm thinking eventually i'm going to to spend quite a bit of money on rebuilding my system since right now i'm just running on a compaq motherboard that came with the original system i took apart to build my current set up.

I dont know much about the northbridge chipset but i do know that it handles the communication between cpu, ram, pci bus, xpci bus and etc. In order to make an overclocking experience worth while, which northbridge chipset should i take into consideration and which chipset should i try and dodge completely?

So far from my search the intel p35 chipset is a pretty solid northbridge.

Side Buttons On Mx1000

I used to have a ms optical mouse with a button on each side of the mouse that i could assign to use in games for certain actions. The buttons on the mx1000 wont assign to anything, as in the game doesnt seem to see them. Just the normal left, right, and center wheel buttons are seen in the games. Its not a super big deal as i can just map the keys to the keyboard but i would rather have them being used on the mouse. Just wondering if anyone else has this issue or if there is a way arounfd this.

Change The Functions Of The Keyboard Buttons

I have a microsoft digital media keyboard, seen at the top of this website click here. Now most keyboards these days come with a next, play, previous, buttons that work with itunes. Is there any way i can change the functions of the keyboard buttons, i have the microsoft software but it is terrible, there is favourite buttons that you can assign, but you can only assign them to open applications, not function as a play button, etc.

Keyboard With Normal Function Buttons

My logitech media elite keyboard is getting bad so i'm in the market for a new keyboard. I thought i could just buy a media elite again, but no logitech hassled around with the crappy keys , resized the function buttons and voila: media 600 keyboard. Thanks, but no thanks. I'm done with those stupid proprietary function buttons. Is it just me, or is there nothing decent on the market? I'm looking for just a "normal" keyboard:

Black
Qwerty-layout
Normal sized function buttons
Normal positioned function buttons
Solid
Normal buttons (not laptop style)
Around same feeling as the media elite keyboard
Numpad

(Thing as volume keys / mute / media / mail / etc. : Nice to have. )

I've had a look on the logitech g15 and don't like it at all:-

-Expensive
-Big
-Doesn't type as nice as the media elite
-Who needs a illuminated keyboard? I can type blind with all ten fingers and if you slide off the keyboard you can easily find the 'f' and 'j' because they have that ridge. A illuminated keyboard only distracts. The only light should be numlock, caps-lock and scroll-lock. -A display on a keyboard? No, i have my teamspeak client on my 2nd monitor. I've crashed a lot when flying chopper in bf2 because of the stupid randomly positioned and sized function buttons , so normal sized and positioned function buttons are a must-have. Would also be nice if there would be no need to cover 'escape' with the lid of a 35mm film can. I guess i'm not the only one waiting a keyboard that matches above list, so if you found one, please post. Edit: i have no problem with ergonomic keyboards as long as the space-bar is split in two (or firmly connected so i can cut it in two myself. ). The microsoft ergonomic 4000 is a perfect example of a completely failed keyboard because the space-bar doesn't work that well being curved in two directions. http://www.Pc-maeuse.

Wireless Keyboard With Minimal Functions / Buttons

I'm looking for a quality wireless keyboard that doesn't come covered with crap. I don't want additional function buttons, multimedia controls, lcd info screens, knobs, switches, lights, snow cone makers, cheap plastic add ons, spilt board ergonomic crap or anything else other than the standard keys. I would like a wireless version for home use. Does anybody know of a keyboard like this. I guess an extra button or two wouldn't hurt, but i want the bare minimum, any suggestions?
