Is this a good fighting/arcade game controller for PC?

What drew me the most was the crazy low price on this thing. Reviews are mostly very good. I don't know much about arcade button switches and I'm not planning to spend extra on a custom controller, I just want something that will work.

It's not a bad budget stick, but optimally you'd want to get a one with Sanwa or Seimitsu switches.

You could replace the stick and buttons, though.

I've used one with Sanwa switch buttons before and like the feel. Do you have some controllers to recommend with the Sanwa switches?

Yeah but they're all $100.00 and above.

^ That.

THe one you just showed us isn't 'bad' but don't expect good performance. I'm gonna guess the stick is gonna be clunky.
I recently found my old ps1 arcade stick and the stick is TERRIBLE.

Buttons are pretty good though.

Get a stick that's worth it and good.
You're gonna run into a lot of problems if you don't.

I'm might take my chances with that $39 controller then. I can always mod it with better stick and buttons later.

The Hori Arcade VX also seems better and still in my budget (I don't need to have 8 buttons)

I assume that like the gamepads the arcade sticks for 360 would also work on PC.
