is there any reason to upgrade to the more expensive controller if I'm just using it for PC?

and, are there any alternatives under $100 with a large throttle control? I'd prefer a stick with more buttons on the actual stick. I'm disabled, so my left hand lacks the ability to press the buttons on the throttle with any accuracy, highly problematic in games. I've been juggling the idea of custom making a joystick, but I know that will quickly go over $100 :(

I used a SAITEK AV8R for FSX for years. No throttle buttons, most buttons are on the stick, there are some switches and what not at the front though.
