Complex programs, such as audacity, are not the right tools to
troubleshoot hardware and driver problems (in my opinion). What happens

the same noisy something as skype does.

What do you mean by "strange"? Over-amplified and distorted maybe?
Turning down "Digital" results in having nothing recorded. Also strange
is that all "Capture" levels have to be quite high in addition to
"Digital" that you can hear something.
Try to adjust "Capture" levels with alsamixer until you get a clean
recording with arecord, then you can start to worry about the additional
problems involving skype. I would begin by turning down "Digtal" (that
control is very touchy for my Intel ICH8 card).
