Do I need a soundcard?

  1. Feb 12, 2008 #1
    I want to get a microphone for my computer, but I'm not sure if I need to buy a soundcard first.

    I took as best of a picture as I could.


    Where the pink colored input is there's a microphone icon above it. So I'm assuming all I need to do is buy the microphone and input it into that slot? Or do I still need to buy a soundcard?

    Yes you'll need a soundcard. Most current motherboards have onboard sound "cards".
