 Delivering power to headphones is cheap and easy, delivering power to headphones in the right way is what a dedicated headphone amplifier will do.
Check out the EHP-02 headphone amplifier, 77 GBP (106 Euros) http://epiphany-acoustics.co.uk/products-page/headphone-amplifiers/ehp-o2-portable-headphone-amplifier/   Maybe get a Hifimediy USB DAC, with what would be leftover in your audio budget. http://hifimediy.com/sabre-dac-uae23
I say get the FiiO X1.
 I think I'm missing what point your trying to make?Or the real purpose of why your asking this question? All headphones usually improve, to some degree, when used with a decent headphone amplifier. You have a DAC and you have a headphone amplifier and have headphones you plug into the headphone amplifier.Are you looking to change something in your audio setup?
 Nothing wrong with getting the E10K.The E10K is external, so will not be effected by any electrical noise that might be inside the computer caseand it's headphone amplifier has a much lower output impedance :)The >1-Ohm output impedance of the E10K's headphone jack is more desirable then the SB-Z's 22-Ohm impedance of it's headphone jack.So go for the E10K.
 Here are some used Sound Blaster Z sound cards, current bids are around $30 (shipping is $8-$12).http://www.ebay.com/itm/291546965408?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIThttp://www.ebay.com/itm/171905789861?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT They come with the CS4398 DAC chip, should be better then the Gigabyte's DAC feature.and they have a separate amplified headphone jack, as well as the line-output jack for the speakers.
You might might be the first at trying to use both the Astro Mix-amp and DSS2 at the same time.
 What model and revision # is your gigabyte motherboard?
Did you get a DAC?
 I think Kingwa is offering the safest advice and you do not have to use the cheapest shipping option.You do realize you might have to make up your own mind about what choices you make in life and what value you place on your belongings.You can always ship the NFB-15 to Hong Kong with tracking and confirmation and insurance, I do not think Kingwa would stop you if you decided you want to get tracking and confirmation and insurance.
