What is a good microphone and overall setup for family video chat through Skype? [closed]

I have the main TV in the family room hooked up to web camera and a microphone, which allows the whole family at once to video chat. I'm happy with the setup, with the exception of the microphone - it is over-the-year (so it is difficult to pass it around) and it works poorly for higher frequences.

"The Snowflake is a portable professional USB microphone. It is recommended for use in Podcasting, voice recognition software, iChat, VoIP software (such as Skype and Vonage), dictation, field recording, lecture recording, narration, presentations, and music recording -- so it is more than able to pick up multiple people/sounds at once.

Whether you're recording your newest
podcast, talking business on the web,
or just narrating your latest great
family movie, the Snowflake can
capture it with amazing clarity and
depth that's head and shoulders above
any comparable portable USB on the
market!

The Snowflake works on both Mac and PC
with no complicated drivers to
install: just connect it to your
computer's USB port, follow the
prompts and you'll have high-fidelity
sound in no time. It's perfect for
podcasting, voice recognition
software, iChat, and VoIP software
such as Skype and Vonage. Or use it
for dictation, field recording,
lecture recording, and narration for
slideshows and PowerPoint
presentations. The sky's the limit.
It's even great for recording music
via GarageBand and other multitrack
recording software."
