If I simply run a line from the sound out jack on my computer and plug the other end into the computer mic, I get too much distortion and computer noise, not to mention low quality sound. This is also true if the audio is coming from an external source, like my Playstation or TV.

You need a attenuator cable for that, Radio Shack used to sell them. You overloading the microphone input and clipping the audio. A microphone is a low level and the sound out is high level. A Attenuator cable reduces the level.

Many sound cards have a line input that would work OK.
