Well, it is up to you.

I'll not make a voting poll just like this.

Is this one of those large spinning trackballs? Those used to be popular for certain types of DOS games.

Those are pretty cheap and easy to come by. I've worked with quite a few of them to get old scientific equipment to run on newer computers.
