Probably your mic. Get a line in to allow you to plug your guitar/amp to your computer. You'll need a 1/4" to 1/8" converter. It will cost about 5 or 6 bucks at most.

I'm probably going to go with the 1/4 to 1/8 converter... how did you fry your sound card? turning your amp up too loud?

I don't know what your set-up is or what you plan on recording but everyone screaming praise of the Shure SM57's says wonders on how Shure has taken over the market on Mics.

SM57's are not the worlds only/best mic. The best mic is the mic that is made for your application. If you're wanting to record a nice guitar cabinet, [which I advise against. If you're recording electric guitar, you'll want to get a small 30-15 watt practice amp. They have better tone without having to crank the volume and overpower the mic.] you'll want to get an AKG C 414 B-XL II Cond. Mic. It's got a steep price for a reason. It's the best for recording mic'd amps and vocals. The freq. response on this "bad-boy" is amazingly wide. It's 20Hz-20k. That's plenty. Even a bit more than you'd normally need.

It's got even more features then you'd find on a Shure 57.
-High sensitivity and extremely low noise
-High-sound pressure level capability and wide dynamic range
-5 switchable polar patterns
-Completely immune to electrostatic and electromagnetic interference from digital -gear, computer monitors, etc.
-2-color LEDs provide quick visual monitoring of polar pattern and output overload
-3 switchable bass cut filters and 3 pre-attenuation pads with LEDs
-All switchable components operate in low-impedance circuits
-Elastic capsule suspension greatly minimizes structurally transmitted noise
[Thanks to Musicansfriend.com ;-)]

This mic is built to please, and please it does.

If you want to sound cheap, you can get the cheap 57's that everyone seems to fall to their knees for.

That's my opinion and I'm Shure everyone else will have theirs as people tend to do.

Great response, that should be placed in every thread that covers the topic of mic's and Shures. But I wouldnt call the sm57's "cheap"
