What's the best way to connect my microphone? They way I see it, I could either buy another 3.5mm to 6.3mm adapter that will hopefully let me send mic input from the headset to the sound card, or a "headset buddy" adapter that will let me plug the mic and the headphones into the same hole in the sound card. I don't know if either of these solutions will actually work, nor do I know which would provide better sound. HALP!

The Xonar Essence STX dosen't really have a "Microphone" input, just a "Line input" that may or may not provide the voltage to power the microphone. Just buy the two adapters ($3/ea or so) and try it and see.

Actually it's a 6.3mm (male) to 3.5mm (female) adapter.
