as other said, you will need the Microsoft gaming reciever (USB dongle) or a working knockoff. The problem I have encountered with it, you can only use it with Microsoft certified Games for Windows. The drivers for the Gamepad and Wireless receiver doesn't include anyway to map key strokes. There was some third party apps, but I don't know if they still exists or supported.
The good thing about the Gaming receiver, it supports all of Microsofts gaming controllers including the Wireless racing wheel.
I don't know have one, so I can't say with certainty, but the USB wired Xbox 360 controller works on the PC. And I think it works with non-certified Games for Windows games.
I know it's not the answer you're looking for, but you're probably better off buying just a good PC gamepad from one of the third parties.
