I'm a first time PC builder and have went ahead and found some components I like. However, I'm not sure if they make sense or how to properly connect them. I was hoping thats where you all could come in at.
So one thing that was important to me was good quality audio recording. With the Audio Technica 20 SERIES AT20 I'm wondering if phantom power would be an issue; if instead of using the USB, I opted to use some kind of XLR connection to the back of my sound card (pictured). The reason for me trying to do this is that I've heard that the XLR has a slight audio advantage over USB.
Also, I'd love to hear a general critique of my Amazon shopping cart. lol
Thank you in advance for any and all responses.
PS, If any of this makes no sense or If I totally have the wrong idea, let me know.
