A great gaming mouse is essential if you're looking to get into PC gaming seriously, but if you aren't careful, you may spend much more money than you need to. In reality, some of the best gaming mice on the market are $50 or less, meaning that you won't need to break the bank at all to take your game to the next level. Here are our favorite picks for the best gaming mouse under $50.

Controling your game and budget

All of the above mice are excellent pieces of hardware, but if I had to choose one, I would go with the CORSAIR M65 Elite RGB (opens in new tab) since I play a wide range of games and that mouse is the best overall. It's a mouse that feels far more expensive than it actually is. It's a good match for general gaming.

There are other standout options from which to choose. Shooter fans will want to go for the Razer DeathAdder Essential (opens in new tab). If you're an MMO player, access to your hotkeys via a mouse's numeric controls can be the difference between victory and a raid wipe. The Logitech G600 (opens in new tab) will be a huge help. If you have a narrow budget, you should choose the SteelSeries Rival 110 (opens in new tab).
