hi im just about to join skype and need some suggestions as to which "webcam" and head set to use ,also,will a built in mike be ok,or is it better to use a head set thanks

I have used both and they both worked fine. I think it is a matter of personal preference. Even a cheap webcam worked OK for me although someone else may be able to offer specific advice.

I find the Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 is excellent. It has a built in micro and some clever electronics that (almost) prevent echo when using the PC's speakers - better if the speaker volume is kept to a lowish level. I never use a headset
