i am going to use guitar rig 3 and my computer speakers as my 1st amp.....my sound card is REALTEK HIGH DEFINITION and my speakers are creative inpire with 29 combined watts....so is it good enough or is the guitar going to damage my pc?
It'll work but I don't think you'll get the best sound from it. And I have no clue if it will damage your equipment or not. I tried playing a bass on my sub before and it sounded pretty awesome but stopped for fear of ruining/damaging speakers.

I got a toneport GX at home, going through my onboard Realtek HD sound, works great albeit a little quiet. I use the Toneport as my soundcard now, tends to have better SNR (lacks things like EAX and Directsound, not that it matters cause I'm running Vista)

That's a gaming soundcard, not suitable for recording at all. Thjose types of sound cards have great output but aren't especially good for recording through...

Get something like this: http://www.thomann.de/gb/pci_audio_interfaces.html


And that realtek is your onboard sound, if you got a half decent CPU and 1 - 2 gigs of ram you should be fine, and look into a stealth plugin, line6 port etc to plug your guitar into your comp, although a 1/ 4 to 1/8 jack should do fine
