All you need, have the same setup and its great. I realize your post is just for headphones but looking at your rig i realize its absent of a dedicated soundcard.. I'd suggest you get one i've been playing around with mine as far as music goes and the settings u get are just amazing.. also for gaming the dolby / 7.1 is just awesome.

Yeah 900 is great as well.. but only reason why i would recommend the 700's over it is because i read that the 900's are a little bit more bassier and the 700's have better sound staging which is definetly where you want to be at for gaming... plus you can save that extra 20 and throw it towards the soundcard

False. The RX900 has a larger soundstage than the RX700. However, the RX900 also has this nasty echo/long decay that makes things sound a bit muddy. I can't recommend the RX900 over the RX700 because of that. It is true that the RX900 has bigger bass than the RX700. It's not necessarily better.

Hmm, yeah, for $60, the RX700's are a good buy. The Superlux HD668B's are also really good at that price point. The guys over at head-fi love these. The Samson SR850's are basically the same as the HD668B's (Superlux is an OEM for Samson), so if you can find those at a good price, they might be worth it for you, too.

Would go for these headphones. Everyone likes these. Superlux HD668B Pro Monitor Headphones $49.00
Also add Asus Xonar DG soundcard to give it good sound. Cost $20-30 depending where you live.
