Well, I'm gonna make a PC for gaming and I want to play games in 1900 x 1200, so I'm thinking 8800 GT (or should I up to the GTS for that high of resolution?). Anyways, on the audio side of things, what type of hardware am I going to need to connect my guitars and mics to the computer?

There are many options, it all depends on your budget for the recording side of things. for Guitar and MIC you'd need one 1/4" input and one XLR input, so the e-mu 0202 might be a good option, I got the 0404 myself, more input options.

Here are some USB 2.0 options from m-audio, creative/e-mu:

this is the one I got to replace my creative audigy 2zs platinum:

there are also a bunch of PCI/internal options too, which come with frontpanels to plug into.

if budget isn't an issue, maybe look for a firewire 800 interface, with onboard DSP or something? :bounce:

GTS512, not just GTS. If you want to max things out in games, go with the faster card.
