    Hi everybody. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what might make a good gamepad for PC gaming.

    I'm looking to buy a copy of Pro Evolution Soccer 3 and would prefer to use a pad. I know some people have suggested using a Playstation 2 controller through an adaptor, but I'm concerned about compatibility issues. Preferably I'd like to use a gamepad designed for the PC.

    I'd be grateful if people could offer some of thier opinions and experiences on this matter.

    Thanks.

    I use a logitech wireless gamepad. It is great for Pro Evo 3, and many more games. It is only £20 at the moment in Dixons.

    I bought an adaptor and it works in everything I have tried including emulators, PES 3 demo, FFXI....

    Definately the best controller you can buy.

    Thanks for the replies. Does anyone know where I can order a USB adaptor for the Playstation 2 Dual Shock pad?

    Don't know too much about that sort of thing, but would this do:

    http://www.play.com/play247.asp?page=title&r=PC&title=114167

    Always seems to appear on the 'Top Sellers' list for PC games so it must be popular...

    I have a Gravis Gamepad pro and i like that one very much. It uses USB and detects automatically, no drivers or calibration to worry about.

    Lik-sang do an adaptor for PS pads which you can plug 4 pads into - it cost about a tenner.
