Webcam for Gaming Usage

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently own a Microsoft HD-5000, which I sincerely regret. The autofocus is a mess and the screen quality is mediocre at best. I primarily use this webcam as a mic to chat ingame, while my family uses it to Skype. I currently have a budget of $50 max and was wondering the best option particularly in the sound department. The only restriction I have is that the webcam can't be one of those clip onto the monitor types. I'd prefer a more flexible range of positions. Thanks.

Edit: Only two source of noise in my room are my mechanical keyboard and a fan the runs in the background.

Why wouldn't you just get a better mic?

Trying to knock out two birds with one stone since I need to change my webcam at the very least.

i dont think you are going to find much superior audio quality in a webcam in that budget.

if anything i would go for another of what you had or go for the Logitech equivalent
