just had a thought would it be better to connect the mic to a better sound card rather than a not so good usb device? I could do with some suggestions

No because even the not great interfaces have a sound card designed for music. Look into the E-u 0202 it is actually a very good device. What is your actual budget?

havnt really considored a budget not too expensive but relatively good recording quality, i looked in to the sm57 and apparently being a dynamic mic it doesnt perform as well in studio conditions compared to condenser mics?

i could do with some suggetsions here!

Different tools for different jobs. Dynamic mics *tend* to be better for very loud sources without a lot of dynamics... like snare drums and guitar cabs. Condensors are not necessarily better than dynamics. It just depends on the application.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?
