Seems like you went over budget to me.
Yes it is $5, but the OP is on a budget that doesn't mean disregard it, he put a budget there for a reason.
Plus if you factor in a sound card the total would be around $200 dollars.
Ugh. First of all, some people have Amazon prime, which allows free shipping. Second, $92 is the suggested new price. You can get it for $80 refurb'd. Third, 99% of people can go $5 over budget.
You don't need a sound card for the AD700s to be night and day better than any gaming headset, but if you do get one, the Xonar DG is perfect and only $25.
No one here needs your contradictory non-advice.
