I really want to start a Youtube channel. I've really been enjoying watching the many Lets Play videos on Youtube and I'd love to do my own. The plan is to use FRAPS unless I find something better for around the same price. I've currently got the onboard sound from my Asus P5Q Deluxe, and a crappy little earpiece thing with a mic: http://www.keminmusiikki.fi/cat/product_details.php?p=753 I did some testing with the free version of FRAPS and while it captures the game's audio fine, my commentary sounds crap. Really quiet and there's some noise though its not as bad as some vids on Youtube. I'm thinking of the Razer Carcharias (http://www.scan.co.uk/products/razer-carcharias-professional-gaming-headset-51-with-mic) and the Asus Xonar DX (http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-xonar-dx-xd-71-pci-e-soundcard-low-profile). Would the above two items do what I'm after? I'm not just in the mood to fork out £100 to do Youtube video's - they'll improve my general gaming experience as well. But I am particularly interested in whether or not they're any good for what I'd like to achieve.
