Phantom power is a power supply that comes from the amp or soundcard that powers mics which have active circuitry. Typically a stage mic like an SM58 for vocals won't have active circuitry so you don't need phantom power, but condensor mics like the AT2035 you are getting will usually require either a battery, or can draw power from a Phantom Power source.

I checked though, and your soundcard unit does have a Phantom Power supply, so you should be all set. It looks like a nice piece of kit actually, and quite a reasonable price too!
