logitech g502. It cannot be fully configured under linux (because the official configuration tool works only on windows), but otherwise it works perfectly.

I've a Corsair Harpoon -- there's no configuration software for it, like there is for my keyboard, but there's a DPI switch which works and changes the light clour to let you know which setting it's on. It's "cheap and cheerful" but, in my opinion, fairly well built. I don't really game though, so your mileage may vary. Oh, it is also a little lighter than some I've used.

A gaming mouse would necessarily be corded because of the unavoidable high latency with bluetooth.

For a corded mouse, I currently have a Logitech, Inc. M-U0007 [Corded Mouse M500]. It's mostly good except that I very much dislike the asymmetry because it makes it very hard to switch hands. It also has very poor placement for the side buttons. The wheel is nice and has a nice motion even if jiggly. So overall it is quite adequate.

I have a Zowie FK1 (corded) and a Logitech MX Anywhere 2s (cordless). Both are excellent for gaming. But then, the only thing I consider a requirement for gaming is a notched wheel.

If you need a gaming mouse and you're worried about support, look at the following project:

libratbag

There's also a project to support Roccat products specifically.
