Windows 7: Microphone Background Noise Annoyance

Microphone Background Noise Annoyance

I'm trying to record a video in game with commentary, however the background noise on the mic is ridiculous (This isn't just in the video)

I'm using the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion PCI-E sound card. I'm using my front panel mic and I do not use the onboard sound at all and have it disabled.

I want to get the background noise removed but I don't know how to get this done

Can anyone help? it'll be much appreciated

Staic background noise. Win7x64
First off, I know for a fact that the constant static is not due to hardware faults, this is due to regally using Linux, without the need for music playing to remove the background noise. So how would I fix windows from causing me to have static? Looking at most of the threads, it says that...
