Sound card/headset/speaker upgrade

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok, this is what I'm looking at getting.

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 $41.99 after mail in rebate

Logitech USB Stereo Headset 350 $16.95

Logitech X-530 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers & Subwoofer $39.95

What is the difference between the 250 and 350 version of the Logitech USB headset? I'm guessing it's just the quality?

I want to get a usb headset so I don't have to plug the headset into the sound card which is at the back of my computer. If I get a usb headset then I can easily plug it in, and unplug it.

If you have any suggestions, please post them.

Thanks

Alright...I was kinda thinking that would be the case. I'll have to re-think what headset I'll get.

Before I buy, I just want to make sure everything will work together. The Logitech X-530 speakers will work with the Audigy 4 sound card, right?

Thanks

yeah, they'll work... I wouldn't spend money on an audigy 4 though... it's old technology. get an x-fi. you can get cheaper x-fi's now so take a look at those before you buy
