If you have issues with mouse lag while gaming on windows 8.1 you'll be pleased to hear microsoft is working on a fix.

In the mean time there are a few workarounds to try in this thread, they apparently don't work for everyone but are worth a try.

Microsoft released the following update on November 7, 2013:

KB2908279 - Mouse pointer stutters or freezes when you play certain games in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2

The above Knowledge Base article refers to two other articles which can help resolve other mouse-related problems:

KB2907016 - Mouse input in some games is incorrectly scaled on high-DPI devices

KB2907018 - Button clicks for internal touchpads and pointing sticks are not responsive while or shortly after the keyboard is used

I have found that installing update kb2908279, in combination with the changing the setting described in kb2907018, results in the mouse working substantially more in line with what most people would expect.
