    Question Steering wheel for PC

    Having just invested in Test Drive Unlimited - my first PC game for many years - I'm looking to buy a steering wheel. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Desirables:

    £50 tops (if poss)
    Force feedback
    Pedals

    Cheers!

    So it's not for driving down the Information SuperHighway?

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrroan, that was bad, but gave me a chuckle :-)

    It's to stop me crashing all the time, using the damn keys it's either flat out and crash into the nearest tree or stop!

    On a more serious note... keep an eye on Aldi, they have had some interesting bits and pieces of late including joypads.

    Ordered a Saitek R660 Force Feedback Wheel from Aria in the end, seemed the best price and spec

    Cheers for tips on Aldi, there was nothing on offer this week unfortunately

    AARRGGH! I sent it back as it makes a horrid squeak when using the paddles, but they've just contacted me to say there's no fault I shall be e-mailing them back to remind them of the fault and ask how they tested it - i.e. in a noisy workshop, and was it just a case of take it out of the box pull the paddles once and put it back away!

    Anyone any suggestion what else to say, at the monet I've paid £10 to send it back, and will have to pay to have it returned
