Long story short, I started looking around for a new gaming headset about a month ago and ended up, well, here. I've lurked quite a bit and tried to gather as much as I could. To get started, I had a tight budget (sub $200) and ended up with the HD555 (arriving tomorrow) and this sound card. These choices were based on both my current and future situations as well as a ton of advice and research. Really, based on my current hobbies, I'm surprised it took me this long to get here.
That aside, I would have loved an internal sound card but ASUS decided it would be a great idea to disable my PCI slot when I'm running in SLI mode. But I just got this thing today and I've been messing around with things. Currently, I have the Logitech X-540 (yes, I'm aware of the abysmal quality) and even with these things, I notice a rather large difference. However, once the HD 555 arrives, I'm going to be using those primarily.
TL;DR, I need help getting them set up. Any advice?
