    Soundblasters are not all that bad that some people might make you think, but I'd still go for, as you suggested, a M-Audio Audiophile or something like that. There's a couple of nasty things with the Soundblasters - mainly the sample rate locked at 48Khz and the completely ****ty mic preamps (or rather "preamps") on it.

    As far as mics go, I'd suggest either the Rode NT1-A, Studio Projects B1 or the Audio-Technica AT3035. They're all around $200 (the B1 is a bit cheaper I think).

    Don't really have much experience with preamps, but from what I know, the Presonus Eureka or the FMR ReallyNicePreamp seem like good stuff.

    There is a huge difference in sound between the sound blaster cards (or other consumer cards) and the bottom end of the pro market.
