I would go for a soundcard with a built in headphone AMP..

ASUS Xonar Essence STX

Just a thought, so you dont have to worry about getting an amplifier down the road.

Kind of on the expensive side for me which is why i wanted to choose between the creative sound blaster Z or the titanium HD

Xonar Essence STX is a fantastic soundcard, although the drivers for it are pretty old.

Good choice. The AD700x is just an updated version of the AD700, with a slightly tweaked sound. My advice is to get the Xonar Essence STX.
