How to Interface SM-58 Microphone With Computer?

I got a Shure SM-58 dynamic microphone recently. But when connected to the Realtek mic-in port of my computer, and used Audacity software for my audio recording, the sound level was too low.
Which interface should I use between my microphone and the computer to get my voice recordings proper?
Please remember, budget is a constraint. Shure XLR to USB Signal adapter costs around Rs. 8550 (US $159) at www.bajaao.com. I would like to go for the cheapest solution.
Hi Krishnadsas! Your problem could be written out as, "What kind of audio interface do I need?"
I looked at that page, and realized it could be clearer about the lower priced models. I'm not familiar with Shure's interfaces, so I can't comment there.
I went to bajaao.com and clicked on "Studio/Recording" in the sidebar, then on "Audio Interfaces." There is a list of many you can browse, but here are a few to consider:
Hope this helps. Leave a comment below for any clarification.
