Best Current Gamepad

I've recently did my first build and I want to know the best gamepad you've heard of or the best one you've used. Please don't just google the most expensive one, as that's not what I need. I need to find out what real people are using. I've got an Xbox 360, and I like that gamepad but I read you can't program it at all. Is programming important? I'm a noob to PC gaming.

Thank you!

  1. the 360 gamepad by a long way. its the only thin m.s got rite for the 360 xbox.
    giving it pc support was a stroke of genius. i dunno about programming it if you mean reconfigure it thats not true. it depends on the games what you can do with the pad.
  2. Should I buy the wired one or wireless?

    Definitely the Xbox 360 gamebad. Feels great, works flawlessly. Get the wireless one. With the wireless adapter you can run multiple gamepads, use a headset, or use the wireless stearing wheel with it. You can program it if you have the right software, but I wouldn't worry about that, most games support it out of the box nowadays. And some games do let you program it to your liking. :D
  4. ihas a ps3 controller --the real one-- with wireless bluetooth and its no difference playing call of duty 5 on PS3 vs PC

    if u have PS3 one or a Xbox 360 controller just google this

    Magicjoy DS3

    yea its japanese but it works
  5. There is a generic Xbox360 controller around the place called 'Afterglow', I am running Win 7 Home Premium and had no trouble with compatibility, just plugged it in and it found the correct drivers.

    I have played Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising and Bulletstorm perfectly.

    Good hunting :)
  6. Yep, Definitely the Xbox 360 gamepad. Many games have built in support for it so you don't even have to set it up.
