Any good headset will work better than the built-in mic in you iMac. It's a fine mic, but for Skype it's best to have the mic as close to you as possible. Pretty much any USB headset will be a big improvement. I have one of those collapsable Plantronics headsets, which I can't recommend. Loose connection somewhere, which makes the audio choppy at times.

The Skype site also has some recommendations.

Any good PC will work better than the OS in your iMac. It's a fine computer, but for computing it's best to have the OS as close to you as possible. Pretty much any OS will be a big improvement. I have one of those compatible Windows 7 OS's, which I do recommend. No loose connections so far, so computing is rarely choppy.

The Dell site also has some recommendations.
