So I am really confused right now. I have this wired USB Thermaltake mouse that was replacing another wired USB mouse that was shutting off randomly and it worked fine for a month then it started to shut off randomly too. Now it has gotten really bad and I can't ignore it anymore. So to be sure what my problem is I plug the Thermaltake mouse into a laptop and use it for 30 minutes or so and I have no issues and I took this cheap laptop USB mouse that I was using with the laptop and plugged it into my desktop and I have been having no issues. Someone have any advice on what I should do?

I have tried using different drivers and messing around with the USB power saving settings. I am at the point where I think my motherboard fried its USB ports somehow and does not like handling higher end mice.

How many BUS powered devices are plugged into that hub?

I believe I'm thinking along the same lines of nsvander. Sounds like your USB isn't supplying a full 5 volts to the devices as it should. This could actually be a sign of a power supply getting weak in the knees. Try and use a powered USB hub plug both mouse and keyboard into that and see if problem magically goes away.

If the problem goes away when you use a powered hub, I would give serious thought to replacing the psu.
