You can plug that preamp right into your sound card in the PC, just be aware of the limitations of that card (and eMachines in general) in terms of power and performance...you won't be able to get away with very many tracks in a song or it will start choking.

You will also want to make sure you can run the eMachines sound card in Full Duplex Mode as well. If you cant, that means you will not be able to hear previously recorded tracks playing back while you record a new one.

not the brightest spark...
