Major 7ths are an easy way. If you feel like it, take an ordinary chord progression and throw in some 7ths(of course the ones that are in key) and see if it works.

How can you have a Minor Sus chord?

And Nick I get what your saying now, kind of...
Just messing around with that C chord now and came up with a lil chord thingy that seems to make it sound sadder than it usually is: Am - C/G - Em With the C/G try only playing the bottom 4 strings as well as this takes away your major 3rd and root so giving the chord less of a happy feel

dudes, a single chord does not sound depressing, maybe meloncholy or dischordant but its the combination of chords and rhythm that gives that effect, try this
Emaj / E? / Emaj / Fmaj / Emin
e|--------------------11-1-1-11
B|--------------------11-1-1-11
G|1h3-3-3-33-11-22-2-2-22-0
D|2h2-2-2-22-22-33-3-3-33-2
A|2h2-2-2-22-22---------------2
E|0h0-0-0-00-00---------------0

slow droning rhythm, sounds dischordant, psycadelic, mystical, just wonderful

A lot of the times its not the single chord itself that makes a sad sound, but the chord that leads up to it, or whatever comes after the chord.

Half Diminished chords: 1 - b3 - b5 - b7, if used right. Look up the so-called "Tristan chord".

A bunch of minors and majors mixed together with a few sus chords all played in the key of X minor sound good.

I'd say minor-major7 chords.
Code:
--3-- --4-- --4-- --5-- --3-- --x--


or anything with some mad tensions.

Thirteenth chords are good too.

Code:
--5-- --3-- --3-- --2-- --3-- --X--


but using sad sounding chords isn't all that's neccesary, you have to utilize a sad chord progression, which you can change in various ways, i.e. adding suspended chords, other tensions, diminished chords, half-diminished chords, etc. I also say look into some jazz and look at the chord progressions, because some of them will blow your mind.
