Budget Headphone + Sound Card Combo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone. I'm looking for an Headphone + Sound Card combo for about 100$, do you know any? I'm going to use it mostly for gaming, but I do like some rock n roll sometimes... hehehe 

I thought about the Audio Technica ATH-M30 (42$) and the Asus Xonar DS 7.1 (43$) and saving the rest for a good mic.

OBS: If you could post links from Amazon it would make it a lot easier for me ;)

OBS2: I don't know if this is the correct area for my post. If it's not, I'm sorry :P

Thanks.

Heya,

 

Asus Xonar DG (PCI) or DGX (PCI-E) or X-Fi Titanium (used; PCI-E) with a Samson SR850.

 

Very best,

Thank you for answering already! I think I'll go with the Xonar DG, because my video card air flow would be obstructed by the DGX. Is the DGX so far superior?

Creative WOW ears cushions ($15) seem to be well like for adding to the SR850
