Default best game controller

i just really got into pc games after building my new computer and right now i play everything with the mouse and keyboard. im used to playing games on the ps2 and i would like to know what is the best game control out there. so far ive been playing farcry, ut2004, quake 3, diablo games like that, and im planning on getting battlefield vietnam, half life 2 maybe some racing games and sports games, and some rpgs. i would like the best control for overall gaming since some games are a real pain with keyboard and mouse.

Ya. Xbox controller no question!!! That is the best one.
Check some of these out:

you could plug an xbox controller into one of those and then plug it in your USB port
