Hello,

If I don't have the original cable that comes with the X-Box 360 controller, which other cable could I use to connect the X-Box 360 controller to my pc? Is it a very specific cable that only comes with the X-Box or is there other cable I could use?

no other cable. get another off amazon or something. if you actually want to use the controller to play, then you either need a wired one, or a plugin device that connects wireless ones

If all else fails there is a Microsoft Xbox 360 controller for windows, both wired and wireless. I use the wireless one with my Steam games and love it, however it goes through a lot of AA batteries.

I got myself an XBOX One controller off amazon back in march for my PC. Though you are right having to go through AA batteries is lame but luckily you can easily get rechargeable battery packs for them. I got myself this battery pack as I only got myself a single controller and it came with a massively long USB cable (10' or longer, didn't measure) that will allow me to charge it while in use in case the battery dies while gaming. We are human after all so forgetting to charge the controller is something that can happen lol.
