    Game Controller for my PC

    I have a Cyberpower PC and I like to play World of Tanks on it. I'm not great at using the keyboard and mouse to control my tank. Would there be a good low cost controller to use with my PC? And would it happen to be a usb to hook directly into my puter? TIA

    World of Tanks on the PC does not support a controller natively. You would need to use a remapper for the controls.

    With that said, I would recommend you use an Xbox controller for the comfort and support of those remapping tools.

    I use a Power A X-Box style controller and I'm very happy with it. It wouldn't have been my choice, but it was a gift from a family member.

    My all time favourite gamepad is the Logitech F310. It was only 25 on Amazon and it's great.

    I would recommend the Logitech over the Power A because the Logitech has a better D pad on it.

    I have zero problems with either of these controllers. I just plug them in and Windows 10 installed the drivers and they work perfect with Steam with no other configuration on my part.

    g41851 you mean those controllers are "plug n play" with Windows 10? On one of my "WAY OLD" computers I needed a game card to get a controller to work with games.

    Yes, they are plug n play, Windows takes care of all the drivers.

    That's right. For simplicity sake, whatever you decide just make sure it's Xinput, as other controllers - like the DS4 - is Dinput and will need software or wrappers to run properly in most games. Steam has a built-in feature for controller compatibility which is neat for Dinput devices. Xinput controllers are plug and play and will be recognized automatically by Windows 10. Personally I use the latest Xbox One Controller (Slim/white) by Microsoft and it's perfect for games. Got it on sale so can't complain.
