I know nothing about Skype, what do i need to look at or buy to use this? Any good websites?

Thanks in advance!

If you have a laptop thats all you need as the built in mic and speakers will suffice. That said you can get a line mic for a fiver and a pair of ear phones for the same price.

What spikeychris says is good for a start but if you use it with any regularity, a comfortable headset will pay dividends..

Give a mic and cans any day. I find that wrap around options pop and rattle. At work I have devised a matchbox installation where a radio mic and radio earphones can be fed through a mixing desk allowing gain options as well as mini disc, MP3 and any input device to be played through Skype.
