The Creative HS Fatal1ty "just works" as it plugs into the mic and
audio out sockets on your soundcard - £30 though which may be more
than you're willing to spend. You might just need to fiddle with the
mic gain a bit in the audio panel but thats about it.

I'd be careful with some of the USB solutions however - I'd imagine
that, given that they bypass your soundcard altogether, some of them
will have driver issues...

Hope that helps
