The Creative Titanium HD seems to be the most recommended sound card here on OCN for strictly headphones and stereo sound. You'll hear a noticeable with that from your integrated motherboard audio. It should have CMSS-3D (which most consider superior to Dolby Headphone found on some ASUS sound cards) as well for improved positional audio for gaming.

The ASUS Xonar DG is a cheap, awesome card for headphones as well, but lacks any positional audio processing.

Finally the Audio-Technica ATH-AD700s are considered the best headphones for gaming. I own a pair and they are wonderful!

I stated that the ASUS Xonar DG lacks positional audio. I'm wrong, it does have Dolby Headphone.

I can recommend a Titanium HD. Installed one yesterday, and it is a LOT better than my Xonar DG for gaming. Great postional audio in CSS, and probably in other games. Music is better than my DG, but I wouldn't say I was blown away. I am noticing new details, but it's not "like listening to a song for the first time" as some would have you believe.

However, the drivers are a pain in the ass. I got them working now, but you'll probably need to spend quite a while tweaking them. I'm using a pair or Sennheiser 598's
