My question then is other: What is the best headphone for that games to be driven by that audio card?
I am sorry for bad english. Google translation is a pain for me.
Don't worry, we can understand you just fine. If you're sticking to the sound card, I definitely wouldn't go as far as the D7000. Ultrasone 900 is a good bet, or D2000. As plus, both will sound great with music too. Sadly there aren't as many good options in the closed back market as compared to open back.
EDIT: Just saw your post. Like I said before, HD800 is the best you can find as far as soundstage goes. But you will NEED an amp. Nearly all higher priced headphones will require an amp to sound their best (or even sound good at all). The exceptions are the Denons which have very high sensitivity and 32 ohm impedance.Edited by Iceman23 - 4/29/11 at 9:11am
