Recording Microphone

Hi All,
We want to make some speech recordings in an anechoic chamber (or a sound booth) and are looking for recommendations for a reasonably priced recording microphone for the task (or do we really need to spend a good bit of money for quality recordings?). Given we will be recording in quiet any thoughts on the microphone polar pattern (omni seems to make more sense)? Something with a flat frequency response and low mic noise seems like a good start. We will likely be using commercial software for the recording process (e.g. Adobe Audition, or SoundForge) in conjunction with an Echo DARLA 8-channel sound card. Any thing else I should be thinking about? Any specific suggestions? I appreciate any thoughts you might share.
