This mouse offers up to 10,000 DPI, which you can modify to exactly to your liking through Razer Synapse. You can go as low as you want, and raise it as you get used to it.

Corsair Sabre RGB
Although this mouse is in the cheaper price bracket, it doesn’t sacrifice features. Much like the Razer DeathAdder above, this mouse comes with the power to go to 10,000 DPI, a gorgeous design and RGB lighting. Due to this, you’re actually paying less for the same number of features. Corsair is popular for this exact reason.

SteelSeries Rival 700
Right away there are some obvious things you should know the Rival 700. This mouse is very unique due to the OLED display, which is able to display many things, such as settings and even GIFs that are specifically made for this display.
The Rival 700 also comes with features such as a modular design, RGB lighting, adjustable DPI, and OLED display. The DPI maxes out at a whopping 16,000 on its optical sensor and 8,000 on its laser sensor. One major downside to this mouse is that it does not come with an ambidextrous design.
