You should probably be more specific as to what cards you're interested in.

Is it the Tascam US-144 and the M-Audio Fast Track Pro?

These are fairly expensive soundcards, both with XLR mic preamp and phantom power. Is that a must?

REW will operate with very inexpensive cards and an SPL meter if you're not looking for high end...

I thought about Tascam US-122 PRO
Looks like that card would work fine.... Note the only calibration files we offer for mics is for the Behringer ECM8000.

when we use laptop and Mac OS X
I have read a few things JohnM (author REW) has said about OS-X and feel you should ensure REW will work OK on your machine first before spending a bunch on a soundcard.

See here where he says: Please note that there is a separate bug that seems to afflict the PPC under Mac OSX with audio data ending up byte-swapped (despite the Java classes explicitly defining the endian-ness of the requested data) so a Leopard update may not resolve things.

I'm a bit confused, because I'm a newbie forum user and seems to be impossible to buy any calibrated mic from Cross Spectrum, special offer.
See here for the reason behind having to be a member since August 1st to qualify for the present 'special offer'.

You can certainly purchase a calibrated ECM8000 from Cross Spectrum though..... just not the present deal..
