Logitech RumblePad 2 but sadly if you want the usual console port crap to work right on your PC you are pretty much strictly limited to the 360 controller.

wireless works well, but the control itself as most 360 controls are complete rubish.

analog sticks are horrible, no dead zone settings.

I have GTA IV and Street Fighter now, so I was hoping that a controller would improve things. Looking at the Rumblepad 2 and xbox360. Looks like SHIFT has rumblepad issues.

I bought a wired 360 controller and it seems pretty nice.

How come no one mentioned using an XB360 controller? hehehe

I've had a wired one for a long time, unlike the XB360 itself the controller is all quality....I only use it of racing games and NFS: Shift kicks butt with it.

I use a MadKatz GamePad Pro wired 360 controller on my PC (for GTAIV Heli) ,It has grip strips and autofire (for retro games) and feels much better than the official.

And its black.
