I am looking to purchase a USB interface so I can connect my guitar to my computer and record. Is there anything that costs less than $100 that's good?

I got a factory re-furbed 2i2 from ebay for $105 shipped. Look for the listings to make an offer instead of a bid or buy it now. Low ball and wait for counter offer.

PM sent because I can't remember if ebay listings are frowned on and I don't feel like looking, lol.

What kind of recording are you going to be doing? Are you trying to mic a cab or use guitar sims on your computer?

That doesn't help. You can't just plug a guitar into a computer and make it sound good. There needs to be amp and cab sims if you're not micing. Your method determines what you need. So how do you plan on recording? Will you be doing the tone-shaping externally or with the computer?

I will be using it to record through GarageBand on my Mac. I will be doing everything within GarageBand.

If you just want something simple and cheap you could get an Apogee Jam.
It'll let you interface with your mac and ios.
The downside is that it doesn't have a headphone monitoring output, but seeing as you'll be running your clean guitar into it, it might not matter if you are monitoring through the headphone out from your mac?

If you could extend your budget you could get a used Apogee One (older version should be fairly easy to find?), and with that you'd be all set if you wanted to use microphones at a later point.
