Isn't this a normal Wired 360 controller?

I run AMD in my rig, so it was interesting to research this card you mention - it seems it was just released (meaning it's probably a revamp for cost effectiveness), but I did find some chart comparisons. It seems roughly equivalent to low-level AMD 7000 series cards, which are pretty good and nothing to scoff at. It's not high-tier, I can tell you that. In fact, it seems roughly equivalent to the card I'm running now: AMD Radeon HD 6950. I've had this card for a little over a year and it's served me well. It can run games like FarCry 3, Bioshock Infinite, and FFXIV (very demanding game, actually) on ultra settings without many problems, but it is starting to show its age. I was able to run the Battlefield 4 demo at ultra settings with a respectable framerate, though I haven't bought the final version to test out any further.

In short, it would probably serve most gaming needs quite well for about 2 years or so. You need to keep in mind that PC gamers are looking forward to a sort of "next gen" of their own soon, with both AMD and NVIDIA set to release brand-new lines of cards in the near future.

That's...actually better than I was expecting! I didn't need it to run modern games on Ultra, but if it does, then maybe I'll get some good use out of it for 4 years (unlike my current card, which stopped supported by some new games in less than two years after I bought my comp, and is now so obselete that even quite a few indie games don't support it). Guess that'll be the best computer to keep my eyes on for now.

@CanisWolfred
Yea, it's not bad. As @crazycrazydave says, you'll definitely get great performance at medium settings, and as for ultra, I can only give you my experiences with my AMD 6950 card, which seems to be at or slightly lower performance than the card you're looking at. Have fun!

I just use my PS3 controller with Better DS3 (Google it, it's not hard to find). I beleive you can hook up the WiiU pro controller, but I'm not sure on which programme or drivers to download..

I would feel more compelled to use my DS3 controller if I didn't keep accidentally turning on my PS3 like an idiot every time I use it.

Yeah that can be a pain. It only happens to me when I unplug it from the USB. Other than when that happens, it's a solid controller to use if you have one laying around.
If I could find an original wired X360, I'd probably use that instead since the buttons are defaulted to that in most PC games that support controllers. I can only seem to find Chinese imitation ones though and the analogue are disgustingly unresponsive.

@Phatosaurus
Try Amazon! I know what you mean with the 360 imitation controllers, but I did find a Microsoft first-party wired 360 controller for my PC a couple months ago. It's one of the newer black models, but it's 100% first-party and 0% imposter haha. Read the user reviews VERY closely before buying just to make sure.

I should probably add that I can't find a CHEAP legitimate wired 360 controller. That's the problem with console peripherals and controllers, they never devalue.
I know there's legit ones on Amazon, but paying £20+ for one when I can just use the PS3 controller that I already own puts me off buying one.

I'd argue that £20 is kinda cheap for a controller. That's about half the price of a new PS3 controller (and by conversion $10 cheaper than what they cost over here). While I haven't checked too thoroughly, I doubt you'll find much good besides those chinese knock-offs you mentioned.

But, if it's not worth it to you, then its not worth it. I know I'll be grabbing one someday for $40, because I think I'll find it convenient...and my brother stole all the 360 controllers...but I'm not here to change your mind.

I'm just tight with money. I even squeak when I walk, sometimes.

Has anyone played League of Legends? My nephew has been playing it for a long time now, and I was wondering if anyone can tell me why is the game so addicting to play?

Well, I play Dota2 (don't tell LoL players haha), and the two games are honestly quite similar ... they are both games that are extremely focused on teamplay. The way you coordinate with your team and use your character's abilities is key to winning. The best way to describe it is like a StarCraft or Warcraft game that has slightly less micro due to the fact that you are mostly controlling one character rather than small troupes of minions. You also level up throughout each match, kind of consolidating an RPG-like experience into short 45ish minute bursts of time.

I'd just like to add that Dota and dota-like games have the absolute worst gaming community behind them, except for maybe Xbox Live.

Also, I just got my wired Xbox 360 controller in the mail. Broke it out with Rogue Legacy and Fez and it's perfect.

I had fun once and it was awful.

You're pretty much correct. There are some horrid people on Dota, but there are also some awesome people. You need to get out of the beginning brackets and start getting matched up with the higher-level players before you start meeting some honest and helpful people. The problem with that is that you need to get good at the game, which can be tough to accomplish when you're constantly teamed up with the scum of the earth, as you mentioned.

Also, in my experience, I frequently get matched with people who only speak Spanish, even when I'm set to only search on Eastern U.S. server. Makes communication in a game that's all about communication pretty rough.

Yeah, I hate playing teamplay games like League of Legends and DOTA simply because I feel like if I do bad, I'm contributing to the failures of other people, no matter how much I dislike them. Makes me feel bad, you know?

And I just ordered a Wired controller from Target. Hopefully it gets here soon. If nothing else, I can play Fallout: New Vegas with it.

I use a Nostromo + Naga for most of my gaming but i have a 360 and a Wii U pro controller for games where a real gamepad is better.

I don't personally play it, but I do believe I've heard that people still do. You should check out the forums on Steam and see.

I had a bit of trouble claiming it, but I got my Fallout 2 & Tactics, having owned Falout 1.
The servers are probably under a lot of stress, so you may encounter page errors.

Want to know the funny thing? Another part of the [GOG] sale is picking a mystery box that coincides with a special deal. Mine was Fallout 2 :/
