Under 20 dollars is preferable, but il pay more if it is quality. I'd get an xbox controller but their a bit expensive.

The Official Xbox style controller is listed at $33 on Newegg. It's probably worth it to just spend a tiny bit more and get quality.

$24.95 for the white wired one on Amazon

it's not that much more expensive than 20 dollars, I'd say save a bit more to get it.

This used to be $12 and some change.

Not really worth it at $20 now.

I swear I just checked 5 minutes ago and that was 35 bucks 0.o
unless something cheaper comes up I'll probably get this

XBox controllers are great if you like a gamepad that wasn't designed for the PC and thus doesn't natively support DirectInput. If you want an actual PC gamepad that's even better that supports both DirectInput and XInput natively then get a Logtiech F series gamepad. The F310 should be affordable for you:

The F710 is even better with wireless and rumble, though:

I would recommend paying a bit extra and opting for an official 360 gamepad. I've used one for PC gaming for the last seven-ish years, mainly for emulators and the occasional racing game, and it's been great.

Wow...what's wrong with the onza? I picked one up yesterday at bestbuy for $30 CAD. $20 less than the microsoft pad and so far it seems pretty decent.
