In Need of High Quality Sound Set Up!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello,

I decided to build myself a new computer this month. I chose the ASUS Maximus VI Hero motherboard which comes with integrated SupremeFX sound. However, I'm looking for something better. I would like to purchase both a soundcard/amp and a pair of headphones that will suit me well. For a budget, I'm looking at no more than $700 (possibly flexible). 
For the most part, I play games, listen to lots of music, and watch tons of videos/films. I would like top notch audio quality for this. For gaming, I would like to have the ability to "sound whore" with a very comfortable headphone that I can wear for several hours at a time. I was looking into the AKG K702 Annies, or possibly the AKG Q701s, but wanted to get another opinion. As for a sound card/amp, I'm really not sure what to look for from a hardware standpoint.

Thanks!

Audio-GD NFB-15.32 DAC/Amp, $255+shipping.

Comes with USB/optical/coaxial inputs, so can be use with more then just your Win PC.

Should drive any headphones you get.

I've been using my new 15.32 for a few weeks, zero regrets.
