I'm new to head-fi and I was looking into getting a nice set up for my computer. I was thinking of getting the X-Fi Xtreme Music soundcard because I have read good reviews. For the actual cans I was thinking of Senn HD580s, AKG K501s, or if you have any other ideas let me know. I will be using this for gaming as well as music so I need a good all around setup. I don't know anything when it comes to amps. What would be a good amp to use hooked up to my computer? What about an amp for my iAudio Cowon A2? I've been looking at the Pa2v2, MINT, and CMOY amps but I am pretty clueless so let me know what you think. My last question might be a dumb one, but I havn't seen it discussed too much. Will a good setup like this give me great sound for gaming, like a 5.1 speaker set? Thanks for all the help!
