    ^NO.

    Rs 300 Soundcard is will be similar to your intel motherboard's sound card.
    Infact if your Intel Mboard is genuine then maybe the built in soundcard is better.

    Are you really getting latency problems wiht motherboard soundcard?

    I have creative SB Live! 5.1.
    It is decent enuff but i guess it was for 4-5K two years back.
    Now it should be cheapr.

    Check out soundcards by Creative.
    They are generaely cheaper and better.

    Ofcourse if you want a better set-up then some thing of this sort is necesary:

    On if the good thing is that it has 1/4" jacks/sockets.

    ^ LOL to all of you.
    Creative makes soundcards for a differnet purpose (which is = genereal home threatre listening).
    Of course Creative soundcard can handle the Digital Audio Workstation demands.

    However the Soundcards I mentioned are built specially for doing the mixing and recording work.
    Have very low latency and superioir SnR, and resolution.

    Yes.
    Plug your guitar to Line-in port.
    And your microphone to microphone port (duh!)

    When you record - record either the wave signal (check if you get both sounds - mic as well as guitar), or usually there is some option like "record what I am hearing"


    That will do your job.
