Hi, I'm new to home recording and this is a very basic question. I've just got Cubasis VST and want to start just by recording some audio tracks with vocal and acoustic guitar. My mike is a Realistic/Shure dynamic unidirectional. My pc doesn't have a separate soundcard but it's built into the motherboard.

I've also bought a B-Tech BT26 pre-amplifier - as I understand a pre-amp is essential to boost the power of the mike when recording. I'm about to try some test recordings, but can anyone please advise me whether I'm on the right lines in using a pre-amp as above e.g. this one's fairly cheap, so would there be a big difference in recording quality by using a more expensive one and similarly, if I bought a separate soundcard instead of using the built-in one? Any advice very welcome.
