The gaming difference is minimal in most new or very old games but there was a period of time where developers really favored the x-fi cards and sometimes a game comes out that still does.
Anyway, looking at your sig -
the AD700 is a good headphone as you seem to have decided yourself. You can stick a zalman clip on mic on it virtually free and it works well. If you need closed headphones, the A700 (no d) is similar. Sennheiser also makes some great headphones for similar prices, and some of them have mics attached.
Most keyboard guys here will suggest a mechanical board and I would have to agree, if you can afford it and can find one that suits your style. If not, the sidewinder x4 is one of the best gaming rubber dome boards.
One last thing - not that I personally care about this but the mods do - your sig is too long by one line. I suggest you knock out the empty line before "playing only counter strike 1.6" to avoid having a mod yell at yuh for it. Id know.. they've done it to me
Thanks for the Detailed replie - appericiate it.
As Far As my reading ability in english goes - I read that the AD700 is one of the best audiophilies headphone beacause of sound stage, Actually, I'm thinking about buy it moded with boom-mic somehow/where..any idea who is selling it moded?
About keyboard - Actually, I never tried mechanical one, in israel there is only normal switch like lycosa, and there is some mechincal [7G and 6Gv2] - thats all.
I really like the lycosa, and also I'd like to try mechnical keyboard.
about the end of sign - sorry to hear that you got modder yell at you, but it seems like I'm ok and your the first that tell me that..its against the rules of the site or something like this?

In comparison to my Soundblaster Audigy SE, I am far happier with asus. No compatibility issues whatsoever, where I did suffer some with the creative card.
Thanks for the input m8!
I'd like to hear more about when gaming with both - accurate sound, 3d pos and etc.

When I meanning sound card for gaming I was meant about accurate sound, not too much / Exaggerated bass, great treble and such things.
this thing looks intersting, its not the oldschool creative cards?
how this compered to newer/"modren" cards?

I've owned my Xonar ST for 6 months now. I wouldn't listen to music without it. Paired with my DT770/pros, it causes eargasms for any music with even the slightest hint of bass, and gaming. Bad Company 2 sounds so real with the combo I have. The booms from the tanks and explosions make you feel like they are going on outside your house.
Even more so when you enable the Dolby Headphone option in the driver software, along with the 7.1 Virtual speaker shifters.
Thanks for the input M8.
I thinks that the example you said is pretty bad, I mean..usualy when saying me music I always think about alot and over-over-normal bass and less terble [which if I dont wrong is reverse from gaming]
but I care less about the quality if I can get more accurate/pinpointing enemys/fire better..
