Good PC Gamepads (for fighting games)

What gamepads do you guys own that are ideal for fighting games? I'm more concerned with the directional pad -- the on eI have (Gravis Interact Pad) sucks becuase the directional pad doesn't recognize all 8 directions when I play fighting games like Streets Fighters and Mortal Kombat. (emulated, or course)

Give me some brand names so I know what to look for. thanks

Dunno if the new ones are better, but the d-pad on the older MS Sidewider model I tried was really really bad.

I use a Playstation controller, with a USB adapter. The quality of PC controlers is second rate at best. The game console controllers are meant to survive and are the most functional, and with rumble pack.

yes, your thread title in itself is an oxymoron
