So I got a 100$ gift card from best buy and I want to purchase a noisegate pedal with it.

here are the choices available that I can order from their website :

Dunlop - MXR Smart Gate Pedal
Boss Noise Suppressor NS-2
Rocktron Hush
Rocktron Reaction Hush
Behringer Ultimate Noise Reducer (23$... i'm assuming not as good)
Boss Compression Sustainer NS-3

the main problem I have with my distortion is that there's a ton of hissing when I stop playing and there is generally a very high level of noise going on which is pain to work with when recording.

Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.
The MXR Smart Gate is one of the best pedal noise gates out there. Thats the one I'd get out of your list

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.

Behringer Ultimate Noise Reducer (23$... i'm assuming not as good)

But its the ULTIMATE noise reducer!

Anyways, the compression sustainer isn't a noise reducer or noise gate. In fact, it kinda creates more fuzz. At least for me.

Go with the Boss NS-2 and/or MXR Smart Gate, but definitely Smart Gate if anything.
NS-2 gets my vote. I like that pedal very much, all things considered.
