Hi redamiga, and welcome to EAB.

As you already have an Amiga joystick, it would be an unnecessary expense to get another. Have a look at this thread
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=40768
for a way to use it with your PC.

just a note that amiga joysticks and mice are not serial devices
http://pinouts.ru/Inputs/AmigaMouseJoy_pinout.shtml
as compared to 9 pin D-SUB serial http://pinouts.ru/SerialPorts/Serial9_pinout.shtml

Amiga's use 25 pin D-SUB connectors for their serial needs
