I hear some people use a cheap mic like this. They also sell 50 mics for ~$50. I also recommend using your money on smile.amazon.com since they donate .5% of the cost of your purchase to a charity of your choice.

This $700 budget does put a bit of a squeeze on things, but given what we've got I think this is a solid compromise. Takes advantage of the fact you've got access to a Microcenter location for the CPU and motherboard combo, as well as the case. In the end I managed to come in only $1.15 over your $700 budget before any mail in rebates are factored in. All shipping costs for non-Microcenter items is already included.

You should absolutely make replacing that 720p TV with a good 1920x1080 monitor a priority, as that size and resolution will be a pain, and a solid 1920x1080 monitor will look like an absolute dream in comparison. Consider selling it if you need to get a little extra cash. I will offer some monitor suggestions at the bottom of this post.

Here's a part-by-part breakdown:

CPU

Because you've got access to a Microcenter, taking advantage of their CPU+Motherboard combos is the obvious choice here. While it does put soem strain on the budget, putting out the $190 on an i5-4670K is definitely a solid choice to make. This CPU will allow you to stream those games you mentioned without issue (either via direct CPU encoding, or ideally utilizing Intel's QuickSync tech to offload the video encoding to the integrated GPU), and will give you 4 years of solid performance quite easily.

Being unlocked you've got the option of adding on a nice CPU cooler later and doing some overclocking, but that's of course at your own leisure. Even at stock this thing is wicked fast.

Motherboard

A bit of a difficult choice on this one. Due to the budget constraints I decided to give up SLI compatibility (which saves money on both the motherboard and power supply), and instead settle on a solid but quite inexpensive Z87 board. If you click through to the PCPartPicker page you'll notice that the price on the motherboard was manually set. This is because the combo price PCPartPicker uses actually includes the mail in rebate Microcenter is offering on the board right now, which would lead to an inaccurate pre-rebate price. The $69.99 price is the cost of the board after the combo discount with the i5 is applied, but before the $15 mail in rebate which you'll get on top of that.

RAM


Standard 2x4GB kit. $1 more than the GeiL kit available right now, but I prefer the low profile heatspreaders on this G.Skill set, which just avoids potentially running into issues fitting a larger cooler on later.

Storage

Solid combo of a 120GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. Install your OS, applications, and a few of your commonly played games to the SSD, and everything else to the HDD.

GPU

Added the 770 to the build as already purchased just to give you an idea of the whole parts list together.

Case

Brand new, but solid Corsair SPEC-02 case. Solid stock airflow, good cable management, easy to build in, and some nice little features like a side panel window which you won't often find at this price point.

Power Supply

Tapped Rosewill's Capstone-M 550 here. The Corsair CX500M is definitely a decent alternative for $12 less, but I believe the few extra bucks for the higher efficiency, better internal components, and small wattage bump isn't a bad call. That said, Corsair's North American-based support is incredibly good, so the choice between the two kind of goes to you on that one.

OS

While you've definitely got the option of just swapping out to Windows 7, I always suggest new builds go with Windows 8.1. While there's of course a small learning curve to the new OS, overall it's the better choice. A bit faster overall, and some nice features and improvements here and there. Going with this also means you won't miss out on DirectX 12, and you'll get the full feature sets from DirectX 11.1 and 11.2.

Keyboard and Mouse

Went with Cooler Master's Storm Devastator keyboard and mouse set here. While I always like suggesting mechanical keyboards and full-featured gaming mice like Logitech's G400s, etc, getting stuck within a tight budget often prevents that, and taking the $100+ that kind of setup runs out of a budget like this means making performance-affecting sacrifices that aren't in the best interest of the build.

This setup here only costs you a reasonable $33 shipped, and for that you get a decent fully-backlit rubber dome keyboard and a reasonably solid gaming mouse. The keyboard appears to only be 2-key rollover, which is a pretty big pain for gaming, but given the games you're playing that shouldn't affect you too much.

Ideally these will mostly be a stop-gap while you save up and buy some higher quality replacements.

Monitor


As mentioned before, no monitor included in the budget here, but it's absolutely something you should be looking towards as the first upgrade to make. Good 23" IPS monitors like this Acer for example can be found floating around $130-150, depending on sales.

Webcam and Mic


Assuming here that both of these would be used for streaming, with the webcam acting as a face cam, and the mic for team communication or chatting with the stream. As a starter, I'd pick up this lapel mic set. You get 5 of them, which is a little ridiculous, but hey, it's less than $8, and the sound quality on them is quite decent for the price. Ideally eventually, like with the keyboard and mouse, this would get replaced by something higher quality. Streamers seem to love the Blue Microphones Snowball and Yeti mics, so I'd definitely be looking into those.

On the webcam front, if it's just going to be a facecam you can pretty much just pick up whatever cheap-ish one you want. Logitech, Creative Labs, and Microsoft all have relatively low priced HD options available.

Let me know if you have any questions.

u/ieatpizzadouches · 3 pointsr/battlefield3

One of these i currently mount it on a stand on my desk. greatest purchase i've made

u/KoboldCoterie · 2 pointsr/gaming

If you don't mind a desk mic, this has been working great for me. I use wireless headphones without a built in mic, so having a wired lapel mic or similar is just really inconvenient and negates the benefits of the wireless headphones.

Previously, I used these; they're surprisingly good for cheap mics. It's a 5-pack, so while they're not the most durable things, you have plenty of backups.

u/I_am_Nic · 2 pointsr/sonyactioncam

No, it has no bluetooth connectivity at all.

Is there any bluetooth to 3.5mm converter?

If not then I would recommend to get a cheap (they only cost around 8$) lavalier microphone like this one.

u/HybridCamRev · 1 pointr/videography

Sadly, none of these cameras seem to have mic inputs. You really really need a mic input and an external mic for talking head vlogs/reviews - otherwise the terrible audio from the built-in mics on these cameras will make your videos less watchable.

Here is why you need an external mic: http://wistia.com/learning/choosing-a-microphone

In this budget range, there are a couple of cameras with external mic jacks you might want to consider:

u/CoronerDonut · 1 pointr/buildapc

Is this not good enough?

Neewer lavalier mics are comparable in sound quality to the Zalman but you can get a 5-pack of them for the same price. (Review)

EDIT: Here's the same guy reviewing the HyperX Cloud Stinger mic. Laughable.

u/e60deluxe · 1 pointr/hometheater

oh and option 1 is probably going to be the cheapest, and still come out at more than $100.

here is an example:

Gaming headsets, Astro A40s and other 'high end' sets specifically. I understand why they're popular, they're a convenient way of getting clear game audio with a built in microphone, but for the money they're so incredibly ineffectual.

Why would you buy one expensive thing that sits at your desk and produces inferior quality audio when you can buy a pair of headphones at less or equal cost that destroy it (and are portable/useful outside the PC gaming world) and any number of microphones (like this or this or this or this) that offer greater quality and the ability to use your headphones as headphones?
