One thing you should know, is they will give a great impression of surround, and very good positional sound for gaming, but you NEED to have a soundcard that adjusts for that. That pretty much needs you need either an xfi soundcard (cmss 3d) or a dolby headphone card.

If you go with the xfi option, the titanium HD is a great choice, remember, if you get a receiver and surround speakers later, you can always use optical out for surround.

Also, to set your card up for surround gaming with headphones, follow the guide on the OP of this forum. http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=239405
