I am trying to practice at night using a PC and my electric to play along with other music, jam tracks, and samples and want to hear everything through headphones. I don't think using my amp (Fender Deville 410) will be needed. Any suggestions for setup or programs would be greatly appreciated.

If you have a iphone / ipod, there's an app called Ampkit+ that can be used if you purchase Peavey's guitar adaptor. You can play to your itunes tracks, record and you have built in amps and effects

Get a Vox AMplug and then use a 1/8" cable to connect the headphones of your computer into the AUX of the plug.

im a bit of an audiophile. i always use my pc for practicing. what i am using is guitar rig 4 pro, and what ive done is i have my guitar inputting through a guitar rig mobile and ive run an audio splitter and have it outputting through a creative x-fi titanium out to my ad-900 headphones.

there are other programs though, amplitube is one and native instruments have a free i/o distortion/Cabinet program called guitar rig player:

i occasionally run my audio through several programs to get different sounds.

Audacity is good at what it's designed for: freeware recording. Sure it's simplistic by comparison but it gets the job done.

I use a Native Instruments Audio Kontrol 1 external soundcard connected to my PC through USB, it has two inputs (guitar/mic), two outputs for speakers and one for headphones. I use Guitar Rig 4 as an amp simulator. If you don't want to spend that much on an audio interface, there are cheaper options that are basically guitar-to-usb adaptors.

I use audacity. There is some difference plugging the guitar in straight to the line-in on my sound card, compared to using my amp's line out or headphone jack. One of my amps does not have line out so I used the headphone and the headphone output disconnects the speaker, which is handy for what you are doing, otherwise it would be too loud. When line out is used, on the other amp, the sound is much better, but the amp speaker is still 'on'.

amplitube or guitar rig if you want to drop the cash.....but there are alternate methods of obtaining these (not incouraging it, just sayin :P), or what got me through my nightime guitar ventures was my zoom g2.1u. sick pedal for the price, does a lot but its gonna sound REALLY digital

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

I use an iRig with Amplitube (for both iPad and iPhone, full paid version with just about all of the paid effects including the Fender pack). It works very well. Not perfect, but well.

I also use an older Tascam MP-GT1. That works and sounds great, but has its limitations too. Tascam replaced with the BT-10. It does more (amp sims, recording, etc.) but sounds worse IMHO.
