    In the market for a multi-button mouse.
    I'm looking for a multi-button mouse. Preferably USB, as I play games and would like to avoid any sort of lag based on mouse2system connectivity from wireless.

    I'm trying to find something with a right, left and thumb button. Any recommendations?

    Microsoft? There's one called a Sidewinder Gaming Mouse (see att.) Looks impressive and is quite a bit cheaper (in this country) than the Logitech brand, which seems to fetch a higher price.

    Also Creative Fatal1ty 1010 mouse.

    As cool as that mouse is. I'm lookin for something that'll work on Mac OS without the need to boot up windows.

    I think you might find it'll work with OS X. I actually meant to post about a 5-button mouse I bought, it cost me NZ$18, and works without a hitch on OS Panther and Tiger, no drivers required, but it's an OEM item and I cannot find a brand name.

    The blurb about the Sidewinder doesn't mention Mac, but that isn't surprising. See http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/ga...nts#selectedOS
