Hey everyone! I have some general questions about headphones, because I don't know much about the audio side of computers and technology.
First of all, I want a full-size pair of headphones that will suffice for gaming and music mainly, but something that could work for movies and web-surfing as well. I really don't want to spend more than $100, so I understand if I can't get the "top of the line" product of 2012. I have actually been recommended the Samson SR850.
I also want to know if my on-board sound from my motherboard will be good enough to get decent use out of something like the SR850 headphones. I have the Asus M5A97 motherboard, if that even matters. The Asus website says that the chipset is: "Realtek® ALC887 8-Channel High Definition Audio". It also supports 7.1 surround sound, but I am sure that doesn't mean that the sound will be decent quality.
I am experienced with computers, so installing a new sound card would be a breeze, but I would rather not do that if possible. If there are any recommended headphones that sound okay with onboard sound, then please mention those as well.
Any and all help is very much appreciated.
