I haven't ever spent over £30 on a mouse, I have owned ones by Macally, Trust and Kensington and not had a problem with any of them, for my mac I currently have a magic mouse and for my pc I use a kensington Si300 laser mouse, I used a trust mouse on my old pc for years that was cheap and sure effective. All my mice are wired ( except the mac's magic mouse which I've only just got ), I just prefer them that way.
People on graphics type forums go on about spend three figures on a mouse but having worked in various graphics establishments and spoken to others in the industry it seems it's only people on forums trying to out do each other that spend that sort of money on them, everyone else just gets what they need and can afford and more people I know don't spent over the £30 - £40 mark.
These days generally whatever you buy is pretty decent. Amazon is good for reading reviews of mice, I know some of them don't like certain surfaces and you need a mouse mat but I never use one, although I probably should and agree with what Aaron said above about getting the wrist support thing. Having had an operation on my wrist earlier this year with the other one scheduled for next year I could perhaps of helped the situation more.
If in doubt just nod and smile !
