Post Using virtual amps for electric guitar

Greetings everyone,
I am fairly new to the community, so I'm sorry if I am already asking a well known question, but I don't know where to ask other than here. Up until now I was using a small practice amp (Fender 10G) and I've been playing for nearly 9 years now only on that amp (I am on a pretty tight budget). I'm now looking for a way to use virtual amps. I bought an adapter (for a guitar cable to 3.5mm jack) and simply plugged it in my PC as a microphone, I know this is a very bad idea, because the latency is unplayable. I really need some sort of a interface with nearly no latency, but I am on a budget of about 125$, maybe 150$. Where I live, a Focusrite Scarlet is out of my budget, what I found acceptable is the Behringer UMC22 U-Phoria, Zoom U-24, or Power Dynamics PDM-D301. What other equipment do I need in order to use the interface. Any recommendations would be very appreciated, as I have no one to talk to.
Thank you to the community in advance!

Hi and welcome

I'm using the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 together with ampLion Free.
If you can get the smallest Scarlett second-hand on Ebay, it should be within your budget.
The combination works fine for me, unfortunately I cannot say anything about the other audio interfaces.
