If you don't need force feedback.
Maybe the X-52 or X-52 pro. I own a X-52 myself.

or something from CH Products, but I don't think they have a HOTAS setup for that money.

If you have $150 to spend then I recommend you do this..... Go to this site (http://saitekusa.stores.yahoo.net/recprod.html) and get a reconditioned X-52 for $70.... then go to this site (http://www.provantage.com/ch%7E110CHPU.htm) and grab yourself a set of CH pedals for $90.

The Saitek pedals are nice as well but they go for $40-$60 more.. the CHs are good sturdy pedals and a great buy at that price.

X-52 will suit you well for all the games you just mentioned.
