Please write down the full name of the amp or give me its link and what if i used portable amp like fiio E07k or something
As for the headset i was thinking about the byerdynamic mmx 300 , is it a good choice and does it have surround sound ?
The Creative X-Fi Titanium HD (the HD model, not the regular model) has both a high quality DAC and components, as well as having hardware support for EAX, OpenAL and positional cue improvement algorithms provided by the X-Fi chip, features that aren't available on the Z series. It's the best soundcard for gaming, and due to the very high quality parts used, it's also great for music and movies.
Look into the JDS Labs O2.
The E7 is a DAC-amp unit, and when used as a DAC, it defeats the purpose of having a higher quality soundcard (the Titanium HD has a superior DAC).
If you intend on doing gaming, along with having good quality audio for music and movies, and you're looking for an integrated mic + headphones set, then the PC360 is what you should be looking for. Alternatively, you can get higher quality headphones and add a clip-on mic or a boom mic.
