My last beaf with it is merely cosmetic. It's orange; I hate orange.

Also, Striker, I feel it must be said. It is there, unless you are speaking possessively.
I'm sorry.
lol ok ill remember that. i dont care about the macro buttons or the screen that much as i used the number pad for my games any way and the 6 new ones are an upgrade and i never had a screen any way. i agree that the orange is kinda lame. but that can be fixed and as for the keys waring down easily. that happens with every keyboard occasionally maybe ill get lucky

Yes.

No software is needed; Windows will install the drivers for you.

The only time you will need extra software is if you're playing something that doesn't support controllers and then you'll need something that converts button presses to key presses so the game can understand them.

Most modern-ish games support controllers though.

It should work fine, although it depends on the game how well it works. Most FPS don't have very good support for controllers in my experience.

Another thing is that your triggers might function as a single axis, which is annoying in some games. There's an official driver/software from Microsoft that doesn't really do anything but may fix this, although I can't remember for certain.

That doesn't happen very often with new games though.

Oh yeah, good for you not using a controller for FPS games

Tried playing L4D2 the other day with one, it was terrible.

I can't think of any racing game that I've played which doesn't support controllers out of the box. I play a decent amount of them as well

Only one more rep away from the For Sale forum

Most games that are worth using the xbox controller for support it on the PC, Almost every racing game i have ever tried works with the controller, i use to have one before a roommate stole it. I have played grid, all of the NFS games, beat hazard, mass effect 2, GTAIV, and a few other games, which used the controller very well. Most of the racing games supported the triggers for throttle.
