Mouse DPI and pointer speed at the Mouse Properties.

    I have bought a new wireless mouse, which allows me to switch between
    DPIs of 400,800 and 1600. There is no display on the mouse so I don't
    know what the current DPI is, but apparently, when I switch between
    those three DPI's the pointer speed changes. I guess it's 1600 DPI
    when I get the fastest pointer speed. But what about the "pointer
    speed" option at the Mouse Properties item in the Control Panal?

    <400 DPI + faster pointer speed> and <1600 DPI + slower pointer speed>
    seem to be give me the same result, plus I guess maybe setting 1600
    DPI consumes more battery power. And what about the "Enhance pointer
    precision" option?

    I would like to know the optimal settings for my mouse. My hardwares
    and configurations are:
    an 60cm (24 inch) LCD monitor
    resolution 1920 * 1200
    a wireless mouse with adjustable DPI of 400, 800, and 1600.
