The Xbox 360 controller is the best you can get as far as standard controllers go.

I just have an adapter and use a PS2 controller...Then again, I just really like that controller design, so I'm a little biased; there are probably better PC controllers out there.

I prefer 360 controllers. I would get either a PS3 or 360 controller, whatever one you like more.

Yup, if you like the ps2 controller you could get a PS3 controller and a blutoothe receiver for your PC and use that. Probably more expensive than getting a PS@ controller adapter but it's a wireless solution. Also, most games for PC nowadays come with built-in support for xbox360 controllers, which is what I use for pc games (wireless controller + usb dongle). If you decide to use a playstation controller you'll need a program to map the controls. Something like Pinacle Game Profiler.

I'll throw my hat into the ring for the Xbox 360 controller. Easily the best you can get for PC.
