I checked out the Logitech Rumble Gamepad F510 with Dual Vibration Motors
$30.99 USD at Amazon.
and the comment,
The three new gamepads support Microsoft's XInput or "Common Controller"
technology, which is a completely different way of communicating with the PC
than our older pads. This makes them more compatible with newer games, which
generally do not support the older "DirectInput" communication standard if
support gamepads at all. The F310, F510, and F710 are still compatible with
DirectInput, however, so older games that support gamepads will still work
correctly. Additionally, the minijoystick apertures have been changed from
squares to circles, and the Cordless F710 has been given rubber grips (where
the Cordless RumblePad 2 had none).
The only real differences between the F510 and F710 are wirelessness of the
F710 (and the associated batteries and receiver that come with that feature)
