Game controllers for PC

I know there are some hardcore gamers around heah! I'm looking for recommendations for game controllers for PC (wireless). While I play best with the traditional mouse & keyboard, junior over here spends more of his allowed gaming time on consoles, ergo feels better with console type controllers.

He used to play xbox till it got stolen last Christmas, now he plays PS3 mostly. Ant recommendations?

I use a (wired) xbox controller. Works fine in Windows 7, no extra drivers needed. Not sure about the wireless ones though.

They make a wireless adapter for the xbox controller. There no need to buy the PC branded version as it's the same thing.
