Hello there, I have quite a few questions and it's all over the shop but bare with me, hopefully by the end of my list of questions you can see what I'm trying to ask. Keep in mind a have a budget of £50 but the lower the better. Thank you very much!

Well basically I'm getting a gaming pc together (first build) and so far it's been decided that I don't need a sound card (like a lot of people on-line YouTube/forums are saying you don't need one). But I want to be able to plug in a gaming headset and a mic in. With my As Rock extreme3 motherboard will i be able to plug them both in? does not having a sound card effect me being able to plug in a head set and a mic recorder?

At the moment i have the Turtle Beech X12, they are OK but I need a good mic more than anything. I would like to get a better headset so that i have a good mic to record my voice (sound quality from the head set doesn't really matter to me).

So is it cheaper to get a Good mic recorder and keep my turtle beeches x12 (used for listening in game) or is it better to just get a good gaming headset that has a good mic for voice recording and good sound in game?

Can i get a good headset for £50 that my requirements? OR should i just by a separate mic e.g the snowball mic is £48 and keep my turtle beech X12?

Can you plug in a microphone (snowball) and a gaming headset (X12) at the same time and use them both in game?

Wow, sorry about this very unstructured series of questions, answer what you can, thank you!

Best solution

You can plug both your headset and a mic in at the same time no problem, as for your mic, I would upgrade from the headset mic to something like the snowball. Supposing you are getting into youtube and what not, you want your viewers to have the best experience, this includes good sound quality. So again, keep the headset, you can use the headset and a mic separately plugged into your PC, get something like the snowball. And you will be fine, hope this helps!
