If you're interested in going with something better than Logitech desktop mics and the like, pick up one or two of these: Behringer XM8500. I've actually heard a lot about these mics from fellow amateur recording friends; the performance and sound is on par with Sure SM58's, which I have used quite frequently. Versus the $100 Sure mic, the Behringer is a bargain and definitely sounds just as good. You will need a preamp for the mic however, as you can't go directly from mic to soundcard unless you have a soundcard that can drive the mic properly. Preamps can get very pricey, but if you want to stay low and in the introductory range, take a look at something like the Audio Art Tube MP or the Behringer MIC200. Then, all you will need is some cables from mic to preamp/preamp to computer, and some mic stands.

 

Of course though, this is all just random stuff off the top of my head. I have no idea what your budget really is, what equipment you have, or how much you want to invest into this hobby. In light of this, I would say you should read up before you make any big purchases, like anything else.
