Mainly for F1 2010

Logitech 963292-0403 Dual Action Gamepad, with dual analog and rumble function

Are there many issues these days with games only supporting certain controllers(and gaming mice, like an almost no name gaming mouse I might get)

I know logitech is a big name, but is it taken care through windows 7 and mostly all just plug and play, with windows 7 telling the modern game whats what

You're going to want something else if compatibility is of concern. The old Rumblepad series was replaced with the F series (F310, F510, and F710). They're essentially the same thing, but the new ones support X-Input and Direct Input, whereas the older ones only support Direct Input. It all comes down to X-Input. That's why the older ones don't work in games that only support the Xbox 360 controller. They use just X-Input (call it laziness on the part of developers), but if you get a Logitech F series, it'll work in those games.

I have a Rumblepad II, which still works in some games, but of the some it does, some need some fiddling with, and others outright need tricks/emulation hacks applied, which are no guarantee (in my experience, they almost never work perfectly). If you're looking at buying one now, just get the Logitech F series. You're going to spend a hefty bit more than $8 though, but it'll be worth it.

The F310 is the equivalent of the Dual Action (no vibration)
The F510 is the equivalent of the Rumblepad II (vibration, and perhaps better quality)
The F710 is the equivalent of the Rumblepad II cordless (same as above but wireless)

They're all different colors too. Otherwise, they're all mostly the same. It's basically vibration and wireless options that makes them differ.

Get an Xbox 360 controller if you want plug and play. They work with almost EVERY game on the pc thats newer than 2007.

That controller does not have vibration. I had one.

Look at my description above.

Dual Action (no vibration, wired)
Rumblepad II (same thing as except, but vibration, and perhaps better quality)
Rumblepad II wireless (same thing as above, but wireless)

The F310, F510, and F710 replaced the three of them, respectively.

If you want a controller that have vibration AND works with modern PC games, you want the Logitech F510. It's the X-Input version of the Rumblpad II (which I have).
