Hey guys im upgrading my system for recording, and im in the market for a new sounds card what should i get? im using a pc with adobe audition right now

i also have a cabdenser mic thats sexy it uses phantom power my preamp mixer thingy (peavey PVi8B) doesn't say if it has it or not but the mic works fine, if it didn't have phantom would it work at all?or does it just use phantom to run the goodness?

If it's a condener mic, then without phantom power, you would get nothing at all. If you're hearing a signal, then it's obviously getting phantom power. Also, the majority of mixers have phantom on the preamps via a switch somewhere on the unit.
