Will I need a preamp for this setup?

I've decided to get rid of most of my setup which consisted of samplers, effects, recorders, mics, etc. I'm gonna go back to just a simple setup and see where I go from there.

 

I'm just gonna get an RE-20 maybe a Verbzilla and into that I'll just be using a guitar and a few synths/keyboards. Out of the RE-20 the signal will be going into my computers line in input. The question is, I've been away from guitar for awhile, will I need a preamp before the effects? I already have one that I'm selling, but I could keep it.

 

Thanks

You'll need something. The levels aren't going to be right. There are Guitar to Computer DI boxes that go through a USB port that would probably be your best bet, to be honest. The sound quality will be better than your soundcard most likely.

 

Something like this:
