Which Mic and Sound Card for voice recording?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My friend is planning on implementing voice into a ((extremely) huge) Skyrim mod he's making, so we were wondering which mic and sound card to purchase to achieve virtually the same quality as the official voices in Skyrim. Please help!

edit: our budget is around $250

There are many options available, so my opinion is not the only one. I use a Blue Snowball which I find to work great and sound great. It will run you around ~80-90 dollars. You could also try the Blue Yeti which I have heard is better for ~110 dollars. For a sound card, I would use ones like the Asus Xonar, Auzentech, and Omega (names are from memory so it should be close). You should be able to find one for ~150 easily. Also, try looking around the marketplace as they are bound to have a good deal.
