If you're hoping to start a podcast or stream your gameplay, you'll need a decent mic. While the one your headset includes might be alright, the one that's built into your computer certainly won't cut it. If you want to sound great, a standalone mic like the Blue Yeti USB microphone is the way to go. Today it's on sale at Amazon for just $89.99 in multiple styles as part of a one-day sale on Logitech gaming accessories. That saves you $40 off its usual cost of $130.

The mic works with Windows XP and up or Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher. It requires a minimum of 64MB of RAM, which is a really basic requirement.

If the Yeti is too much mic for you, you could also go for the Blue Snowball. It's also a USB-powered condenser mic, but it doesn't cost quite as much. Either option would be good for an aspiring video maker or podcast recorder. That's totally up to you, though.
