Well, I would recommend getting an adapter for the PS2 pad. It's considered the best ever made, so why not use it in your PC?

I never new I could do that! What do I need? I saw a post a while back about xbox360 controllers being used on the PC but wasn't sure how.

Look them up on Google (type in something like PS2 to PC adapter or something similar) to find the best one, there are some really highly rated ones.

Thats pretty sweet. I might just have to order that instead. How do you config the controller though does the adapter come with software?

Well I haven't bought one yet but plan to. I've read some just plug and play, whereas others come with CD's for the drivers. I'm sure it's pretty simple.

Crap I just realized that top site is in the uk. Guess i'll google it and try and find a U.S. supplier. I'd still like to know about the controller I listed. Guess i'll do some research on the crossover and see how it works.

Can't really tell you about any other controllers, as I was in the same predicament as you, and as soon as I heard you can use a PS2 pad my mind was made up and I didn't bother researching any further. I'm positive there are American sites also, you might even get it cheaper.
