Yes, you can.

Have you tried using Google or wandering down to your local PC World?

What are you going to do with it? If its flight sims than there are some good ones designed for that purpose.

set yourself a budget as the more you look for a joystick the more you will see with extra bells and whistles and more money involved, and you may only want to use the basic functions.

Lots of joypads and joysticks out there the best way to pick one is first set a budget then go to pcworld or another pc shop and test it out on a game,
Get one that feels right to you when using it, make sure it feels comfortable in your hands.

Its always best to give the joystick a go before buying,
Im sure the staff at pcworld would be more than happy to let you test it out before buying.
