Hey guys not sure if this is the right thread or not, mods please move it to the correct one if its in the incorrect place.

Ok so lately I have been wanting a buy myself a condenser microphone and I have settled on the BM-800. Ive been reading into this mic and have discovered I need a phantom power supply and have also found one I want as well as mic arm ect...

My main concern is that I need other stuff, people have been talking about DACs, amps and all this other stuff, I just want to know, do I need them? If I plug my mic into the power supply and the power supply into my computer will I still get audio and will it be of higher quality like everyone has said getting a phantom power supply will provide?

Thanks if you need me to explain more or list all the products feel free to ask.
 
I don't think you need anything else but if you want better quality a mic preamp (with phantom power) will give you higher quality than the mic input on your mobo. If you have a soundcard then it would vary which would sound better.
A DAC would be for playback and have nothing directly to do with the mic.
