Yes, I'm running the latest version of Windows 10. I bought just a cheap pop filter for £1 so that doesn't really matter, but the mic arm I got is by Neewer.

You can pick one up for £14 or so.

But if you need a cheaper option then this racksoy is a decent quality arm as well!

A mic arm isn't needed and will ever so slightly be in your peripheral vision but you will sound louder due to the mic being next to your mouth and I think it makes your setup look a lot cooler!

Nope, I have a blue snowball and it's the best investment to my setup, I terms of audio, for a couple of years now. YouTube recordings are crisp and clear and talking to people over Skype I can be understood super clear. I advise getting a pop filter for it to reduce the harshness in your 'S's' but there really cheap anyway so it won't break the bank.

I have mine on a cheap mic arm which is another thing worth looking at.

Awesome! So you are using Windows 10, and the microphone? Also, any specific pop filter, or mic arm I should get?

I did, I had to contact customer support and download a driver for the Snowball to be used in Windows 10 but now it works great. It even says on their website that it's not compatible on windows 10 but I didn't know that before buying it but it's an easy fix.
