It saddens me that you were away so long that you find a mouse and keyboard uncomfortable and would prefer a 360 controller for FPS. At least you are back on the right side thing with a gaming PC

You'll shake the 360 controller thing soon... keep playing

Very nice read and im glad that you seen the light and are back to the Pc.
Pc gaming are changing a bit but it's getting bigger by the day and easier to get into then before so rest assured you did the right thing
And the best thing you can do if you have a hard time getting into the mouse/key thing is to look for a nice gaming keybord. maybe this as I have and love the Merc Stealth. my mate plays like crap with a regular keyboard but since he tested this he just loves the keyboard thing
This is much more comfortable then a regular keyboard trust me!

BTW, I hope that the problem with your son worked out and everything is okey with him!

Hey thanks for asking man. My lil fella has come a long way, I could do a write up longer than above. All told he had 13 surgeries, his last being open heart, but he is well on his way to being a healthy 5 year old. He even has his own computer and browses all the kids sites

I recommend for any parents out there a web tool called RocketKid, works awesome. http://kidrocket.org/ blocks access to anything and everyhing but kids stuff.

Anyway, way off topic.

I have the non lit version (that I picked up for 1) The space/jump key tends to jam after a year of thumb jam added to it but apart from that its great.

Welcome back to the PC world offishall.
I wish you're son all the health in world as I have a daughter and can imagine the hardship you went through.
About a year ago I got into this XBOX 360 business but sold it after 4 months realizing my love for the process which involves building PC, OCing (pushing to the limits), benching, gaming, reviewing etc.

Hope you quickly change your 360 habits.

Cheers!
