Yes. I included that in my section of big differences. A tenth of a second can be noticeable.
My point is more that you pay a big premium for the "1000HZ Extreme FRAG MODE CALL OF DUTY MOUSE" when you could just get a normal mouse and up the polling rate in the software/firmware. I would be willing to bet that only the extremely elite (if possible at all, mind you) players could even tell the difference between 500hz and 1000hz. Or even less really. 500Hz vs 100Hz is a difference of 1ms. 1! It's only 7ms for the 125Hz normal mouse to the 1000Hz gaming mouse. Hell, even the ping on those 10ms severs randomly fluctuates more than 7ms over the course of a match.
How many kills really come down to 7 MILLISECONDS unless you are playing in world class leagues and you need every single possible advantage? Most people would be better off saving the money, taking the day of from work, and practicing actually PLAYING THE GAME.
If you're a world class player, go for it. If you are playing in pub servers, the hardware is waste of money. Worry more about getting a comfortable mouse or a monitor that you like the colors on.
