For trying to improve headphone audio quality, for under $100.   Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z sound card. Schiit Fulla. FiiO E10K or Q1.
 Might trying reading up and asking on this thread.http://www.head-fi.org/t/534479/mad-lust-envys-headphone-gaming-guide-3-18-2016-mrspeakers-ether-c-1-1-added/36345
 Even if you uninstall the Realtek drivers, the Win PC will automatically download the Realtek drivers.Unless the on-board is disabled, in the BIOS. What is the make and model of your motherboard?
 Bravo Ocean hybrid headphone amp.http://www.ebay.com/itm/162180380229?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
 For headphone surround sound, the STX & STX II should be equal, they both use the same C-Media CMI8788 audio processor.Both use Dolby Headphone surround sound. While the Creative cards (Z, Zx, ZxR) use SBX Headphone surround sound. Might try asking here about Dolby vs SBX.http://www.head-fi.org/t/534479/mad-lust-envys-headphone-gaming-guide-3-18-2016-mrspeakers-ether-c-1-1-added My two cents is to just replace the three stock op-amps, on the STX, to improve audio...
With the 62-Ohm AKG 700 series (like the K7XX, K701, K702, etc), really might need a little more power, then the E10K, to bring out their best. The 32-Ohm AKG K553 would be good, if the price is right.   If you were to get a Bravo Ocean hybrid headphone amplifier, plug it into the E10K's line-output jack, then the AKG 700 series (like the K7XX) might be more worth it.   Might check out the 32-Ohm Soundmagic HP200 headphones.
 I'm guessing running a 3.5mm (1/8") to dual RCA cable, from the laptop to the RCA inputs on the sub.Then running a dual RCA to dual RCA from the sub to the studio monitors. You might also check out this 10" sub-woofer (only $220).http://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=115&cp_id=11504&cs_id=1150401&p_id=605999&seq=1&format=2
 Did you disable the motherboard's on-board audio, in the BIOS, when you installed the SB-ZxR. Might also try asking for help on this thread, about Sound blaster cards.http://forums.creative.com/forumdisplay.php?f=6
 So you mean you already own an add-on internal sound card?Asus Xonar Essence ST? If you already own the Essence ST, might as well just replace the three stock op-amps,Essence ST stock op-amps, one LM4562 (buffer slot) & two JRC2114 (I/V slots). For around $60 you could get three AD797BR or LME49990 op-amps.
 Check out the 32-ohm Soundmagic HP200 headphones, somewhat strong bass/treble and very easy to drive.
