looking to plug my guitar into my pc for some recording
looking to do this cheap to see if it works. then if it does spend a little more on better kit

i was going to use amplitube 3, so do i need any kind of pre amp or just a jack to usb converter http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004AF7T1Y/ref=s9_simh_gw_p267_d0_g267_i4?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=17CDTA6GC9X4HKM50CNM&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=467128533&pf_rd_i=468294
somthing along the lines of that.
my amp dosnt have a line out so that out of the question
sorry if this is a stupid question but ive never done anything like this so its all very new

You don't want one of those. They sound like balls.

Go for an Audio Interface like a Line 6 Pod Studio
Derpy Derp Derp Herp Derp
if your on a budget check out the m audio fast track, then you can plug your guitar into the interface and use amp sims
@jecox ssssoooo ssweeeet that whole set up is so sweet. If I had any distortion/delay setup it would be the akai headrush and BM. Awesome set up.
