Recommendations for powered hub?

I'm finding that my 2 wired Xbox 360 game controllers and usb (Keyrah interface) keyboard are simply drawing too much power from my 3amp supply to keep the Raspberry PI 3 from complaining. (the dreaded rainbow of despair).

Can someone recommend a good (and hopefully inexpensive) powered USB hub that will fit inside my current project? (A VIC20 case) Something that has treated you well?

Thanks!

I don't know about the "fit inside" part, nor do I know what level you consider to be "inexpensive", but this: http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/83-12399 is the model of hub I use with Pis when I need a powered hub.

Something to check on, though, is the quality of the cable you're using with your PSU. The problem may mot be the PSU at all.
