Mic preamps

Hi, -a general recording question. I'm using a condenser mic into an external soundcard (Focusrite Saffire 10/10). The card has phantom power. The phantom power seems to create a lot of hum compared to the low signal input livel. I'm having to turn up the soundcard input volume but the hum is drowning out the input signal. For best practice, would I be better off pre-amping the mic before the soundcard?
