I'm not a complete moron (just part) but I can't seem to fix this.  It
seems like it should be easy, but I've spent a few hours a few
different times and can't fix it.

Basically, my problem is on my newish computer, (Dell XPS 600) ever
since I bought it, I plug my mic into the front microphone jack, and
when I use chat utilities for games (like Teamspeak or Ventrillo) when
I talk, I sound like im in a fish bowl, or a borg, and the game sound
also feeds in through the mic..

Any ideas for this noob?  Much appreciated.

   use a headset, you can't use speakers because it has no echo
   cancellation in it. And the threshold is very twiddly. Once
   you get it set up well it works great."
