  I would look into gramofile as a program to use.

Description: Transfer sound from gramophone records to CD
 GramoFile enables you to record audio from (for example) gramophone
 records, process the signal and listen to the results.  [...]
 One of the most important parts of GramoFile is the ability to process
 digital audio signals. Through the application of several filters it
 is possible to accomplish a significant reduction of disturbances like
 ticks and scratches. These filters have been programmed in such a fashion
 that they can be applied in any order (and multiple times) in a single
 run, thus avoiding the use of temporary files. It is possible to adjust
 the properties of each filter independently, so in every situation an
 optimal result can be achieved.
 Another interesting feature is the track splitting. Just make one .wav
 file of an entire side of an record and GramoFile will detect where
 the individual tracks are located. This happens fully automatically,
 without need to set any options. More experienced users may fine-tune
 the algorithm, or change the detected track starts and ends, but
 generally that will not be necessary. Track-times are saved in an
 editable (plaintext) .tracks file, that will be used during the signal
 processing to produce one processed .wav file for each individual track.

  As far as sound card, I imagine doing a test run with one of your=20
tapes on a few of your existing sound cards will give you an idea
if there is a noticeable difference in quality between cards.
