Cheapest: M-Audio Audio Buddy.

If you want better sound quality, the next steps up are:

* Mackie 1202 VLZ. Yes, it's a mixer, but the 4 mic inputs are good
bang for buck, worth considering if you think you'll ever need more than
2 channels.

* FMR RNP - "Really Nice Preamp" highly thought of by many of the folks in, a lot more expensive but way below the price of the real
golden channel stuff. Said to make an SM57 really shine.

I don't know about the sound cards you are using with them, but I doubt if
there's a problem with them and any of the above preamps. They all have
unbalanced outputs.
