I leave windows settings where I like them for navigation in windows, and change each game accordingly. That way I'm not constantly having to swap settings in windows before I play a game.
I like to turn DPI to max then just turn down sensitivity...
I leave mine on the middle setting because I like to turn it to the max setting in the game for certain things. Example: In MW2 I aim using the middle DPI setting, then for aiming predator missiles I crank it for quicker aim since my sensitivity is quite low and the pred missile comes in quite fast.
Mouse control sucks balls in ARMA.
Have to admit, the demo I played of arma (maybe arma 2) felt really laggy to me, move the mouse and the movement on screen lagged behind. I don't know whether my PC was just insufficient to play it, or whether it was the game though so your mileage may vary.
