IMO, first thing you should consider is

Resolution - You might want a good a high resolution so that people can see you clearly
Framerate - 30fps is good that however depends on your internet connection speed
Lens - glass lens is better in giving you clear picture rather than plastics lens
Lighting- This depends on the place where you're using your webcam.Poor lighting makes unclear shots
Money- that explains all,if you have more money,you can search for a better cam

and based on the link you gave

ill choose either
König WebCam 60 or MSI StarCam Clip

Ok, thanks for a great answer, but why the MSI? It only has 640x480 video
Why is Könis better than the rest, and why is the MSI better?

Konig Webcam 60 - the features tell much than others, white balance,high res,etc
Msi - i see the features of glass lens,that helps much in clarity
creative live - low res and i see no features that much
Microsoft livecam-same,not many features but high res
A4 tech - both not shown much features (if there's more,i might change my choices)

Nahh, I wanna keep it under 10.000, which is like 100$
So u mentioned 5 cams...U think I should go with König? The only problem with that one is that I got a pc, not laptop.
I used to have LifeCam VX5000, and I recken that the VX6000 is better
Do u think I will get clearer video freom König than LifeCam 6000?

I just think its weird that u would tell me to buy the cheapest cam
Let's make this easy....
If u were going to buy a cam, and u had to pick one of these, and all u used it for is for Skype, and all u were looking for in a cam was the video+mic quality.

What would u pick?

i thought you want somethings that affordable and i didn't know your budget at the first place . never mind. back to your question, if i were to buy it . Hurm, ill still go for konig. i like the design,along with driver cd(certain web cam tells you to download drivers in their website).plus its not that cheap nor expensive (beyond 5 under 10)

Alright, I know Im pushing this, but könig is better than LifeCam 6000? In quality video? And I can make this cam stand in a table right without it falling on the side?

(This is my last question)
