    Yes the drivers for official xbox 360 wired controllers are built into Vista and Windows 7.

    The wired 360 controller is pretty cheap, and can be had from $25-$35. Game Crazy is going out of business nationwide, see if there's on in your area and you might be able to pick it up for cheaper.

    i have a wireless dual action logitech and it's much too large. the battery/wireless makes it too big for comfort.

    i recommend the wired 360 controller - you can also get wireless and an adapter from mzoft.

    ps3 wireless needs specific bluetooth adapters , wired is awkward unless you get a very flexible usb cable...
