USB headset recommendations for old iBook

Heya guys - need some specific help here. I have a G3 600MHz (dual USB) iBook, and I wnt to use Skype. The built-in mic doesn't cut it for me - I just get reverb hrough my speakers and I create my own "infinite loop" of sound. So I need a headset for my iBook, but without a "mic" port, it has to be a USB (or Firewire I guess) headset. Any ideas?

I have a Logitech as well, it was slightly more expensive than the one PlaceofDis linked to (think it was around 40/45 USD). It's great.

No problems with drivers then? Drivers are my main worry when it comes to these.

didn't install any with mine. just plugged it in and then went to system prefs to change the mic and output to it. simple as that.
