The SM57 might be suitable for your voice too.
That one seems nice! Pretty good reviews! I might go for it but not sure about the interface. What should i get for the XLR input? Some sort of an amp?

Plus if you connect it via USB you can use it as either a SD card reader or a USB mic. Although at an MSRP of $400 it is definitely out of your budget. just something to consider. Unfortunately your limit of $200 is going to limit how many of those features you can get and still keep the quality up.
I've seen that mic and i was considering it, but i want to directly connect it to my comp and record in Adobe Audition. I'm not sure if the H4N allows that, well it has the USB interface, but does the computer detect it as a live mic?
