    basically what DJX said. but since i'm such a nice guy...i hunted down some of the shit for you.
    your gonna need:
    http://img.musiciansfriend.com/dbase/pics/products/33/336360.jpg to go from the mic to the phantom power
    and then tell us what the ins and outs on ya phantom power is...but i'm guessing you'll need:
    http://img.musiciansfriend.com/dbase/pics/products/33/336121.jpg to go from the phantom to the computer, plus a little adapter for 1/4 to 1/8

    why didnt you get a preamp or mixer instead of just the phantom power?

    yeah..once u get into hi-end equiptment...they start being gay, and dont include wires...becuz...wires for that type of equiptment can easily range from 5$ to 50$ depending on adapters, length, brand, and the kind they are. monster is the best. but they are expensive, and its best to leave that until you are completley done with ur studio, so ur not looking for new cables in a month or so, when u move sum fernature around to accomidate new equiptment, and find out a certain cord isnt long enough, or that u need a different end on one cord to hook up to ur new unit. go with cheap ass wires for now (firewire, livewire, watever the fuck they called, decent shit, lil expensive, not as bad as monster though).

    microphone preamps have phantom power. that is part of the reason you get one, in addition to all its other features/advantages. if you can...return the phantom power and buy a mic preamp. thats what they're for.
