Hi im new to UG community and really wanna get some of my music on my laptop to upload but what do i need that wont cost me loads to record some simple guitar recordings? what equiptment is needed etc?

I'd get a Line 6 UX1/2 or GX. The UX2 goes for 190 euros (dunno about the dollar course ATM so I don't know the USD price). It comes with Pod FARM and I got the FX junkie pack with it for free so you're set for some time when you get it.

there are some decent beginner recording packages for around $200. you can get just an interface and use VST amp sims, and the interface will run you around $100. much less than that and you wont be getting good quality. so what is your budget for this?

Check out SHRED and all their heads are great too, but with teir separate heads you'll need a cab loader and impulse system (like KEFIR and IR's to load into it) - Shred is all-in-one - nothing else needed.

guitarampmodeling.com is a great place to learn about impulse if you're not familiar with them:

Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

The main piece of recording equipment you will need is a Audio Interface. This is what you will plug your guitar into or a microphone. These take the place of computer sound cards which are shit at producing audio. Most PC sound cards only replicate or reproduce audio well. Plugging straight into your laptop can be done but sound quality will suffer drastically. Hope that helps, you can get a good interface for 100-200 bucks and most come with software to record

I bought the smallest of the Pod Studios - the GX1

http://www.samedaymusic.com/product--LINPSGX

it comes with everything the bigger ones do just 1 input but it's fantastic - works and sounds great!! and $99.
