Your sound card is alright; should work well for your budget. As for your headphones i would recommend



They have an impedance of 50 ohms, a very nice level to use with an onboard sound card and they will be driven nicely as well by the sound card's drivers. The sound staging on the same pair is also excellent allowing for a strikingly reference sound, a sound that easily costs 2-300 dollars. You are fortunately getting it for close to a $100.

hope this helps.
