I don't want to spend a gajillion dollars, but I'd like to use something other than my keyboard and mouse. Does any one have a good suggestion?

Xbox360 controllers are easily compatible with Windows. Some people I know have had success with 3rd party controllers, but I did not. I got one and could not get my Vista computer to recognize it, but it had no issue with a stock 360 controller.

Going along the lines of using home console controllers for PCs, if you look around there are also a few websites around that sell first party controllers (NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, GCN, PS2, etc.) that have been modified so that the original controller wire/console plug have been replaced with a USB port wire like what is used on a third party PC controller, keyboard, or mouse/trackball (thus making them PC compatible).

A buddy of mine has this one, says it's decent, and it's cheap: http://www.amazon.com/NYKO-TECHNOLOGIES-80650-Airflow-Controller/dp/B0006NGY9C/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1284874790&sr=8-7
