Hi godvalinchi  you have many choices some free some not.
MSN messenger uses the voice clips with just the f2 key pressed and you speak into a small mike...

If you are using windows inbuilt recorder you will need some appropriate audio card these come with some beauties of recording software inbuilt with the card, and allow you to record and alter tracks split them and add them.
you need to use the line in on rear of your tower.

yes camtasia should work all you need is a microphone, unless you have to turn off the sound on your speakers you wont really need head sets.
Yep please famialize yourself with the links above  they explain a lot and will help give you a complete picture.
Take your time.

The link you provided also has software, good price though  I dont think you really need that but its up to you, as I mentioned if you use msn messenger for example it has a voice record tester feature so you can setup a mike alone having a headset as well uses different settings.
Windows recorder has the same, I have linked that already.

 a couple of ideas..
I use this small white one.
