I have the Performance MX and G700 (I personally prefer wireless). Both can be used wired via the micro-USB port in the front. And you can change out the rechargeable batteries if you feel the battery life is diminishing. The Performance MX has the best shape I've ever had in a mouse. Really really comfortable. I used to have the RAT 9, but the battery life sucked and it was overall a really weird shape.
If you insist on a wired one, the G500 and G9x are both great choices, as many others here have suggested.
Location:Your house. As a matter of fact, I'm there right now.

Torolol - The elbow-rest idea intrigues me. I've noticed that my elbow does get sore by the end of my work day, as I upgraded to a mesh chair but sacrificed armrest comfort in the process. The new chair's arms are much more rigid and there's definite discomfort that stems from it.
Astra.Xtreme - Will probably go for the Performance MX if the G9x fails to impress. I had an MX Revo that I loved to death, but the battery stopped recharging and it died. If the Performance MX is like an MX Revo with more reliable charging, then I may well acquire one as a backup or to go on another PC. I looked at the RAT and while the adjustability looked neat, the "paneled" style just had "discomfort" written all over it.
Colicab - It does look like it's large-hand friendly. What's that one on the far right? Looks like a Logitech but for some reason I don't recognize it.
