Gaming headset for ~200$ - Page 11

post #101 of 116
I dunno if anybody's recommended this, but I HIGHLY recommend the Logitech G930's. They're USB, so no soundcard required. Super sound quality (as long as your not a real audiophile) great gaming performance, great mic, last but not least great sound isolation...amazing for immersion into gaming. Obviously you know the quality of G35's, the G930 is that and more, plus its wireless.
The Megalodons have great sound, I had them for a while but I prefer the closed back design of the G930 so I can cancel out background noises. If you want a sound card though, Seinheisser PC360 are the best I've ever used.

Good luck picking!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829132006 + M50's I would think.

I'm in the process of getting a new card myself so doing research on my own to figure out which is better nowadays. I would honestly get a good sound card with a 5.1-7.1 setup, then a set of headphones later, but that's just me.

EDIT: If you go the route of a good card, headphones later, then here are the best choices from what I have read.

For gaming: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102033
For music: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829132010

Obviously those both work really good for games and music, but each of them have their problems with the other side.

X-Fi Titanium, X-FI Titanium HD, Xonar DX, Xonar STX - take your pick. X-Fi Titanium doesn't get much love because they used to be a problem child with Windows 7. Maybe they fixed it or I'm just lucky because I was using one until a couple weeks ago without any issues. Other then that you can't really go wrong with any of them.

Price to see how the Ultrasones are priced for you in Norway compared to the M50's.

Sound card + m50, mainly so you can get a good setup later on. G930 is basically a wireless version of the G35 with some enhancements.

And $200 for that card.. really? That is insane, what about the other 2 cards I linked?

and can i connect a pci x1 to the big slot? isnt that slot bigger than the thing you plug in there?
post #109 of 116
Well that's all up to you then, nothing is gonna be a sound card with a good setup in the end. Could get the $100 card, then a good set of headphones and that Zalman mic, should be pretty good. Alternatively, you could get one of the $200 cards and a good setup, then get a mic/headphone set later on.

EDIT: Yes you can, as long as the spacer is in the right spot it, the x1 slot cards will work in x4 and even x16 slots.

Yes, you can. Meaning you can place a PCI-E x1 sound card in a PCI-E x4 slot.
