New Gaming headset + sound card

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey, first off, thanks for viewing my topic

Ok, I play allot of CS:S and as all of you source players now, good sound is a must. I currentlyonly have some basic speakers, but now I want to upgrade. The only problem is, I do not know what is good/ what is not.

My sound card is currently my onboard from my gigabyte motherboard (sig rig). And I do not have a headset. I was thinking of buying the Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D Sigma, but I do not know wether some of its wuality will be wasted with my sound card.

My budget is 50-80 euro's for the sound upgrade.

Any suggestions on a good soundcard / headset?

sound cards arent that necesary, you wont feel any difference as long as the headset is fine, id go for the corsair hs1, read some great reviews about it.

Looks like a nice Headset, but if I was to upgrade to a ASUS XONAR DG soundcard from my onboard, would it improve my sound, even if it is just a bit.
