Blue Microphones - Snowball USB Condenser Microphone 100USD
MXL - Studio Condenser Microphone - Nickel 200USD
You're still going to need an AD converter if you go for the MXL.
I'm by no means an MXL fan... But if you're willing to go up to $200, the Audio Technica AT2020 or the studio pack (AT2020 and AT2021) is a pretty sweet deal.
Keeping in mind that you'll still need an AD converter.
Audio Technica does have a USB model of the AT2020.
It's built like a tank, too.
The blue mic I don't have any experience with, but I have some colleagues who have used *some* Blue mic. They say they prefer it over an MXL.
It'll also be ready to use right out of the box.
Side note: if you're just starting or are mainly doing work for flash animation I can't see it being much of a problem.
The Blue's AD inside the mic is 16 bit / 44.1K.
You could do better. But it's not a big issue at all.
