well, your choises are huge ..

have a look on diy-audio and head-fi forums for discussions of different
options ..

if it's a totaly cheap mic - you can just plug it into
soundcards like soundblester ..

i myself have an alen&heath 14 desk (zed-14) ..
it's good for most of the stuff i do here at the moment.
i got a funny '70s AKAI mic which is good enuf to shout into
and make beatbox trought pd effects that i build.

but i'm planning to get a few SM-58's and some concer mic at some point
.. but now i haven't got cash for that.

you see ..i cannot recomend you a preamp to your mic cause it's to
complicated to answer such question - all depends how much cash you are
willing to invest ..

may be, if you are after a cheap&cheerful option you could look at some usb-mics ??

but yeah ..check out the two formus i meantioned,
they are populated by loats of decent audio gear diyers ;)

also sound-on-sound magazine may be ..for reviews on new gear.

but i have a feeling that a usb-mic is the right gadgd for you!
