I use a third party 'knock-off' "X360" USB wireless controller dongle and it works fine once you get the drivers installed correctly. It isn't plug-and-play though and the instructions it came with did not work for me. I had to find help online on how to install. Once setup it seems to work just fine with the Microsoft driver setup.
If you don't already have a controller, I suggest buying the MS package with controller+dongle. Otherwise you can save some bucks and get a generic one.
