Need a new mouse

I need a new mouse. My MS Intellimouse Explorer has served me well, with its 4 buttons, scroll wheel, and optical tracking, but is dying a slow (and annoying) death due to its cable connection coming loose somewhere. What's your mouse of choice? [MI] for some more specific requirements...

Aside from it dying, my only complaint about the Intellimouse is that the scrollwheel tends to become sluggish. I owned a Kensington trackball a ways back, and liked it (I especially liked their software, which let you configure button chording), but I live in NYC with cats, so the bearings were constantly getting gunked up. In addition, other trackball form factors really hurt my hand after a while, so I think they're pretty much a non-starter. I play a lot of games, but don't need any l33t h@x0r game-specific models. I like the form factor of the MS Mouse as well as the 4 buttons. Should I get another one, or is there a great alternative I'm missing?
