What sound recording i need to for high quality records with my pc?

How can i record sound at studio quality with my pc?
Im interested in sound recording, but as you know i cant make high quality records with a normal pc and microphone. So i bought a microphone thats better in this job. But when i try it i saw that its not working as it should. Now i want to know what i need to for high quality records with my pc (maybe a sound card, amp, etc).
Thanks for any help.

It depends on your budget, but here are a couple of combinations that might work from least expensive to most expensive:

— Blue Yeti: $100 http://www.bluemic.com/yeti/
— Shure SM58 x2u $200 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?sku=598412&Q=&O=&is=REG&A=details
— XLR to USB Interface $100 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/685448-REG/Alesis_IO2_EXPRESS_iO2_Express_USB_Audio.html
— with Heil PR 40 $305 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=NavBar&A=getItemDetail&Q=&sku=608326&is=REG&si=rev#costumerReview

As for recording software, Audacity is a good free choice. There are excellent paid options available like Adobe audition, but it is only available as part of a $50/month package or $1900 software package. Well worth the price if you are going to be doing a lot of recording.

Depending on your room setup, you might hear a lot of echos that you don’t want. To reduce these, you can put a heavy blanket over your head an the microphone, or put some pillows or couch cushions in a V shape behind the microphone
