I used a mouse/board 'cause I played mainly RTS and FPS (much more accurate to shoot with a mouse) but you can buy controllers that are exactly like the Xbox 360's or PS3's.
I had a joystick for IL-2 Sturmovik but it was really the only flight sim I ever owned. It made BF1942/BF2 more fun, though.
I'm planning on doing a triple-monitor set-up and getting a racing wheel with medals for some of the awesome racing sims you can get on PC.
As for pricing, it's all over the board. You can get a decent gaming rig for under $500 if you do your research and aren't obsessed with maxing out your settings on all the new titles. Top of the line rigs can flirt with $2000 or more. My old one crapped out right before Crysis hit the scene, but it was built to max out Half-Life 2. I think it cost me right around $1400, but I wasn't investing in dual-GPUs, which were brand new at the time.
You can actually use a Xbox controller.
I am using mouse and keyboard.
I just recently built mine for $1,400, it maxes out Guildwars 2, Borderlands 2, and it maxed out Skyrim. It's all running butter smooth too, BL2 looks amazing on the PC. Especially with the extra PhysX capabilities.
Contemplating getting another 670GTX so I can max out Crysis 3 when it comes out.
Torchlight is a blast. It has the same makers of Diablo 2. So prepare for insane loot and crazy skills, combat and gore. A lot of fun.
My home! The outside of it anyway.
Cave system I found. It wraps around a pretty long way. made some stairs down. Found some iron and coal, but no diamond yet. No red stone either. My hunger has my health bar all the way down, but I can't for the life of me find any food. The trees really aren't dropping any apples, and there are no animals on this island.
You playing solo or on a server? The one I normally play on has become... boring, so I'm looking to branch out.
Some shots of my house:

Just playing by myself. I've never played on a server. I would really like to get maybe a 2 or 3 person server going. i wouldn't even know how to do that.
The inside of that cobblestone is actually pretty big. It digs down into the earth. I'll probably start working on a surface house here soon.
Very nice. What texture pack is that? I'm using one called "Heaven" I think. Not sure if I'll be able to create anything like that on this tiny island that I'm on. I love the creation in the bigger seeds, but I like the challenge of a survival island as well. I flip back and forth between the two.
I'm on a Mac at the moment, so setting up a server is a bit of a PitA. I think all you have to do is download an .exe for Windows to run a server. I've never operated one either, just played in them.
I think our server is just using the stock texture pack, but I'm not sure (it's been so long since I've played not on that server I don't remember what Minecraft actually looks like anywhere else ). I remember really enjoying the "HD" texture pack a while back, but it was a bit buggy.
Yeah, my house is 3 stories and has a mine beneath it that goes all the way to the bedrock, but it's been tapped out. I've since opened another outside the castle walls. This server is nice 'cause you can put signs on things and make them "Private," meaning only I can open my chests, use my work stations, open my house door, etc.
Part 1 of 4 of Forward Unto Dawn aired today... and now I'm super stoked for Halo 4.
Lol, how to steal in Skryim

Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
First review for Dishonored that I have seen. IGN gives it a 9.2.
Can't wait to play this tomorrow night.
Open-ended gameplay, a memorable world and incredible aesthetics make Dishonored one of the years most refreshing experiences.
I rented NBA 2K13 from Redbox. Fun game. Game play is really good, and MyCareer is addicting.
What the hell does this mean?
Dishonored has the looks of a game that I will be picking up once the price goes down. It's single player so it's bound to drop like a rock after a month or so.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
Probably so and that is what I should do but patience has never been a strength of mine.

Anybody play xbox, I'm in the mood to throw down on some video games tomorrow.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
I wont be getting this for a while. I'm addicted to Guildwars 2, BL2 and Torchlight 2. I barely have enough time to play those games as it is.
There are a few that pop in and out of here but for the most part the same guys end up dominating this thread and they are all PS3 players (myself included).
Just so you guys know.. Dishonored is set to come out on red box.
Can rent that ishh for $2.00
Our redbox two minutes away gets new games on day 1. Love it. That is where I got NBA 2K13.
Currently, all of my games are on my POD since I moved out of my apartment. The only games I have are Red Dead Redemption (with Undead Nightmare), NCAA 13, and Madden 13, with Borderlands being installed on my 360.
