Hi, you don't plug the record deck to the back of the pc - you have your record deck connected to your Amp. Your Amp is then connected to your sound card - assuming you have a sound card. I use Soundblaster Audigy2, it has all the necessary connecting points and includes clear instruction on cennections. That is what I would advise you to get for a quick and easy setup.

You got it in one. You should of course have instructions on your soundcard cd.
