    It depends what you're looking for. You could get a cheap little headset from a local store that has electronics, or you could order something like Turtle Beaches, it depends.

    I use the Antlion ModMic. It attaches onto any headset using adhesive and magnets. I've been using it for half a year and the adhesive is showing no signs of wearing off. The quality is superb and it is bendable to basically any extent. However, it's a bit expensive ($30) and it looks kinda ugly. Check it out at modmic.com.

    it all depends on your budget for the microphone.

    I currently use the blue microphone yeti http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Microphon...icrophone+yeti

    I then run the audio through a multiband compressor where I can better tailor the audio for the different voice chats I use (for each I have a profile for when the mic is close and for when the mic is far since due to it's size I have to keep it at the far corner of the desk. but it works better than any headset that I have used (especially since unlike headsets, the mic does not break from repeated adjustment.

    here is a review of the yeti https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91stf3gw-4Q

    if you need to go cheaper eg th $50 range, then the Audio-Technica ATR2500 is an extremely good microphone for the price (it is still able to get that radio style voice)

    unless you just won the lottery, I recommend not going with a top end videocard now.

    When at a time of conesole generation transition (because like it or not, game engines are more expensive to make than any game so they tent to make them compatible with both PC and consoles, thus you wont find the most advanced and demanding rendering styles used.

    the last time this happened you ended up with insanely expensive videocards that were overkill for current games (at the time) but when the xbox 360 and PS3 came out, previous flagship hogh end GPU's became obsolete very quickly and their performance was quickly exceeded by cheap mid range newer gen cards.

    with the new xbox and the PS4 both supporting x86 and the latest rendering technologies supported by current GPU's any game that is released to take advantage of a next gen console and also run on the PC, will be able to take advantage of the full potential of the PC's GPU and since with any render method can usually be pushed to a higher level (eg where you may see 2xAA on the PS3, the same game on the PC will allow you to force 16xAA or higher, or where 256x textures will be used on the console 2048x textures will be used on the PC.

    I advise against a new card until the first of the next gen games for the PC come out.

    if you look at current major PC releases, (with the exception of games likecrysis and others in it's range)
    most of the render methods used are what are supported by the xbox 360 and PS3, everything else is generally not used unless the company puts extra work into implementing 1 or 2 additional PC specific features and that are usually dx11 lighting and tessellation

    everything esle is what is used by the console, just pushed further in terms of texture resolution and view distance.

    I use a sony headset and it is very very nice. It has a volume slider for more voices or game sound. Also NVIDIA is excellent

    The mic on the razor is pretty poor quality. audio is flay and lacks bass. (very poor for a voice over)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwgUf1fQpdc


    The meteor mic is significantly better than the razor

    If you do not mund the size, the ATR2500 has similar quality for much less money (currently the best low cost mic that I have found so far)

    I have only one main suggestion for you and that is that you buy a mediocre pair of Turtle Beach headphones, for example I'm running a pair of X12 headphones that you can get for like $30 and they are light, comfortable, and have a pretty good mic. Then one side suggestion is the SteelSeries Siberia V2 as a more expensive pair, you can usually find them for around $70 and they are some of the best headphones and the best mic I've ever owned the only downside is the price.
