Im trying to get a decent home recording sound with this setup:
Cheap USB mic in front of my guitar amp
Running that into my laptop
Recording with Audacity

As you could imagine, that gives me a pretty horrible sound. So, which one of these options would be better?

I would actually recommend this: http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Boss-MICRO-BR-Digital-Recorder?sku=241152

It may be out of your price range but it is essentially a 4 track recording studio in miniature form. It has a decent built in mic but also allows you to plug the guitar into the unit directly. I would caution you to read as many reviews as possible before buying anything, however this piece of equipment has gained a great deal of positives.

How much are you willing to dish out?
I'd say go with a Line 6 UX2 for an interface. Same as the GX + 2 line and mic in's, phantom power and a few other features.

Not sure about mics, I don't have any experience with them yet.

Avoid those mics you posted at all costs. You don't want crap. The Line 6 GX is the best you've posted up there but I highly suggest at least the UX1 so, down the road, you can record with a Mic for Vocals or whatever.

Also, when it comes to software, ditch Audacity. If you get any of the Pod Studios, the come with Alberton or you can use Reaper. Either way, ditch Audacity

Ok thanks for the replies I ordered the GX since its cheaper than the UX1 and UX2 and all I need it for is recording guitar im not doing vocals or anything. And I planned on using the Alberton software it comes with
