I played recently with PCSX2. I used a controller that looks just like the ps2 controller, but its a standard usb connection, and is recognised by windows as a standard dual joystick. It worked fine. I cant post a model number as it doesnt have one! cant see anything that identifies it, got it from amazon.
Dont waste your money UNLESS you can afford a decent one! I had a £60 wheel, saitek(spelling?) and it was awful!!
First problem you find is there's no way to anchor it securely enough, nothing worse than when the wheel keeps moving about!
The pedals suffered the same problem too. I ended up bolting the wheel to an old desk and bolting the pedals to a large plank of wood.
Once bolted down is when you discover how weak and wobbly they are
Using the wheel for an f1 sim was a shock!!! A full f1 race can take one and a half hours!!! After just a few minutes with a wheel I was suffering serious achey pains in my arms!! are you fit enough to hold a wheel for the duration of a race?

You can always go with this for $20 if you're looking for a pretty decent controller. It has mixed reviews, but it's worked fine for me since I had it in 2009. I originally bought it for my PS3 but have since been using it on my pc once I found out it was plug and play. Hell, it even works on my ps emulator that's on my galaxy tablet. www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16879212010

A wired PS3 controller works well, I use one for all my emulators such as PS1/PS2/N64/NES/SNES. No install other than button mapping. It's simple, but it works.

I find it funny that I posted the same question in a computer forum I frequent as well and I had a few replies on these forums before I even got one response at all on the other thread!

Nah I use nvidia geforce 6150se for ps2 and xbox roms (very unbeefy.) If you want to play all the new games for cheap, a geforce gt640 and a 400 watt power supply will do. Both can be had for less than $150.00.
