I have $250 usd to spend on audio setup.

 

Which gives the best quality? should i use the onboard audio , or buy another sound card/usb to dac?

 

My current mobo is asus m5a99x (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131874)

 

Also will headphones like ath m50 in general sound a lot better than speakers? If it doesnt.. then maybe ill have $150 more to spend on speakers and sound card/usb to dac

 

 

any good 2.1 speakers recommendations?

Or should i save up some money and buy something better later?
