What I'm trying to do is perhaps get a dedicated sound card for my PC so that I can broadcast my sound better on a stream site. My biggest issue right now is my current microphone which just pumps out static like crazy because I have it boosted to +30 dBs with full record because otherwise I can't be heard. Someone recommended getting a sound card but didn't mention what type or kind I should be looking for. I've never bought sound cards before so it's completely foreign territory for me. Atm I use a Plantronics headset that comes with a mic.
