Audio Solution for hardcore gaming

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So for the past few days I've been looking into audio options for an upcoming build in January but 30 minutes in my head starts to spin from all the talk of ohms, dacs, and amps. I'm looking for an audio solution that will be used mainly (We're talking like 95%) for gaming, with an emphasis on FPS (potentially competitive). I'll list the details below to make this a tad easier to read.


Budget: $180ish, may be willing to go higher but it would have to be worth it
Purpose: Hardcore Gaming(FPS) Positional Audio is key here, gamechanger.
Current Equipment: No audio hardware other than my headphones, Audio Technica ATH AD700's and a modmic.



Positional Audio is a big one here, as anyone who has played an FPS game knows that sound can be a huge advantage.
Also worth noting, a soundcard would be installed between two video cards, not sure if this has an effect on interference or not.

Any help would be appreciated and any additional info can be provided, hoping to get some info sorted out so this audio stuff is a tad less confusing.

Creative Z, Zx, or ZxR

Their surround sound is better than dolby headphone imo.
