USB devices need software and controllers to manage data through the USB connection. This is the tricky bit, you want to use the insides from a PC controller (and wire-up the switches right) or do as yokozuna advises.

They sell converters like this that would leave your controllers intact for either system.

o thanks for the idea but would it work my idea beacause i have a ps3 now so the controller is no use to me
I'm sure it can be done, but don't have a pin readout for you to follow. The converter solves the problem too, and is cheap enough not to be cost prohibitive (and guaranteed to work when you're done).
