Ok, you might want to buy a audio interface, it would make things 1000 times easier. I really dont know much about plugging in a guitar right into the soundcard... U cant plug in your guitar to the femal jack and send the 3.5 males into the input on ur sound card... I dont know if that would work though. i really don't know how you would hook up the drum kit this way either. U might wanna get an interface or maybe even a mixer to help u out here, maybe someone more experienced then me would know who to send these all inside the comp, but from my view u need something inbetween, to make this easier

I can help u out on mixers and interfaces, I have A toneport Ux2. There is also a toneport Ux1 the difference is its 70$ cheaper and has one input for guitar and one for mic while the other has 2 for mic and 2 for amp. This is a recording USB audio interface:
Ux1 ($130): http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Line6TonePortUX1USBRecordingModelingInterface?sku=249700

Ux2 (200$): http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Line6TonePortUX2USBRecordingModelingInterface?sku=249701

Now there are others out there, some cheaper, some more expensive, some MUCH more expensive, but I think these are excellent mid range ones and Line 6 has great reliability. It also comes with gera box(a computer softwar of every effect imaginable and it models vintage, punk, hard rock. etc... amplifiers) Also Ableton live which is a recording software, u might like it better than Guitar Tracks, but i really didnt like Ableton so its ur choice. Now lets say u wanna put all those drums in or record with u and a couple of ur buddies, u can get a mixer as an extra unit. Beringher mixers are good and cheap. U can hook it up to ur audio interface and add more mics, guitars, drums, bass's and more. So ur setup would work this way, and I will account for all instruments and all units,

guitar/bass --> audio interface (they can plug straight in with a standard guitar cable)
OR, Mic (in front of amp) --> Audio interface
So after u have decided how to plug ur guitars, worry about drums
Probably Drums --> Mixer and Mixer --> Interface
Wanna add more guitars or more mics, put em into the mixer, and plug the mixer into the interface. The interface plugs into your computer via USB and goves u good quality. let me know what other questions u got,

Steve
