Hi very new to the site and am looking for some advice about headphones, amps and soundcards.
Not sure where to start but I plan to mostly watch movies, play games and lastly listen to music.
I plan on purchasing a Creative Labs Soundblaster Z unless I am given a good reason not to, I really don't see a need to go with a ZXR or some of the high quality Asus products. I am building a new pc atm will post specs at the bottom. I plan on purchasing Cyberlink powerdvd ultra 13 for movie watching prefer blu-ray. Again any advice on this purchase would be nice too. I mostly want quality headphones for movie viewing, I appreciate good range and deep bass, but do not want it to drown other noised when watching movies also I am very tired of movies I have to turn up to hear dialog and I get deafened when action or music kicks in. I plan on using the SBZ for 5.1 while gaming and do not require a headset with a mic, just headphones max price $200 preferably $150. Lastly I listen to music occaisonally but am not overly concerned about super rich sounds though I listen to alot of classical. If I can get some headphones that cover all of that with out an amp that would be great but willing to get an amp so long as I don't lose the 5.1 surround I am okay with virtual surround as i don't think tru 5.1 headphones are much better.
Thanks for any help given.
