Well the reason I would prefer USB is because I can't use the line in inputs on my soundcard when I use 96khz output. A non-usb headset would require me to lower the sound quality.

Well, I'd personally recommend, if you can't find a good USB headset, to buy a set of Sennhieser PC151's...I had some PC150s for 2 years before they kicked the bucket (I'm pretty rough with my headsets...they get dropped alot inadvertently)

I had those GameCom headphones from Plantronics, and they died within 6 months, the speakers started getting flaky. Other than that it was a fine headset.

Wouldn't a USB headset bypass your soundcard and thus completely nullify the entire point of having a sound card?

If you change your mind, get the Koss SB45's/SB40's.

The specs favor the SB45, but I read somewhere that they actually sound pretty much the exact same. I'd get the SB40's since I like the look more (haven't seen them in person, but I have the SB45's and I think the SB40's would look a LOT better).

Compared to my AD700 ($100 MSRP, one of the most often recommended for gaming and general use in its price range), it's shockingly similar. There's more bass slam on the SB45s, and the mids are fairly similar to eachother. The high's are the only flaw when comparing the SB45's to the AD700; it's pretty below the quality of its mids and lows for some reason. Positional is about the same with both.
