I realize I'm not directly answering your question, but I use a wireless XBox360 controller on my computer. (Granted I had to buy an additional receiver since it's wireless.) I imagine the wired controller should work if the wireless one does.

I quite happily use the XBox 360 wired controller on my Windows 7 Enterprise (64Bit) machine, so I would say yes!

Since it has a USB plug you can use it for the PC as well.

It's a basic USB game controller. I use it with some of my emulators and don't have to configure a thing!

Windows 7 should recognize the need for any drivers and grab them from Windows Update (at least it did with the adapter I had to buy).

XBox 360 games though will not work in your computer. The controller will be used for controlling PC games.

You are correct it will work on pc games and your Xbox. Windows 7 installs it straight away. Windows live pc games work brilliantly with the controller and most pc games will see the controller. I do this myself with a hori turbo wired xbox 360 controller with no problems at all.
