    LOL, so much depends on your budget and what you desire!

    At the low end, stay away from Logitech because they're too weak (clipping) & the gear drive is too noisy with high update rates of modern sims. Thrustmaster is good, offers more power so clipping won't be a problem. Entry level is about $300 these days.

    Middle ground: Fanatec CSW if you don't want to tinker or a direct drive Open Sim Wheel kit if you do want to tinker. Europeans will say CSW isn't worth the money because they can get an OSW kit for very little more while Americans see more difference due to currency exchange rates. These are in the $800-1200 range.

    High end: if you can afford this much... you'll be over $1500 and likely $2500-$3000.
