I'm in the process of building a new computer, and for the first time I thought I would spend some "real money" on the sound part of the system. However, I'm not really up on technology terms and what all I will need.
I've read through many of the threads on the forums here, and so far this is what I'm tentatively purchasing.
Sound Card: http://www.amazon.com/PCI-Express-XONAR-ESSENCE-STX-90-YAA0C0-0UAN00Z/dp/B001OV789U - ASUS Xonar Essence STX PCI Express Sound card
Speakers: http://www.amazon.com/HIVI-ACOUSTICS-D1080-IV-Speaker-System/dp/B00G2DLOT0/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1385605885&sr=1-2&keywords=swans+d1080 Swans HiVi D1080-IV 2.0 Reference Monitors
Headphones: http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MDRMA900-Over-Style-Headphones/dp/B007DCCK60/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1385606148&sr=1-1&keywords=sony+mdr+ma900 Sony MDRMA900 Over the Head Style Headphones
As you can see it will all run about $570+ so I was prepared to spend quite a bit on it.
Basically my question is will all of this fit together and sound great? Or will there be some kind of component conflict or do I need to buy some additional equipment, or do the speakers/headphones work well with the soundcard? Etc. etc...
Basically just trying to make sure that I've made good choices before buying anything.
