What is the average price of a microphone & software suitable to record an audio clip onto my iMac computer?

I need to record an audio clip to submit as part of an application for a job doing introductions for audio books. No prior voice over or acting experience is necessary, and consequently I have never needed to record audio onto my computer. I'm not even sure that my older iMac (from 2002) has a jack for a mic. I'm using Mac OS X, v 10.3.9. If it is possible I'd like to know how much I'll need to spend on a mic and any necessary software, and where is the best place to buy one, perhaps Radio Shack or Best Buy?

    My iMac has a built-in microphone.

    I use a free program called Dictate.

    Good luck!
