I just bought a penguinamp and a set of ath a700's and I have a creative x-fi extremegamer.

Do I really need to buy a DAC or can I just run a cord from my sound card to my amp to my headphones?

My x-fi has always had good sound with my triports, does an external DAC really outdo a soundcard?

You need a DAC.
Your Creative sound card have a built in DAC, so you already use one..
