First post here. Suggestions on PC audio?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, this is my first post on Head Fi.com and I am looking to get a starter pair of nicer headphones sometime soon.

However until I decide whether or not I want open vs closed back headphones(worth noting that I do like to listen to music on the go, but usually prefer buds for that) I am wondering which sound card to get with my computer, as it is the device that I will primarily be using with my headphones.

I do like to game and have really been looking to try a card that supports virtual surround sound. Does anyone have a rig like that that they could recommend? :)
