DON'T BUY ANY OF THOSE SOUND CARDS.

I'm looking at your mobo, and your audio is currently provided by the Realtek ALC892. If you buy any sound card worse than the Xonar DX / Omega Striker, you're wasting your money. But you'd still be wasting your money if you bought a DX, Striker or better UNLESS you have some very good headphones, which you don't.

So stick with the Realtek ALC892.

Lol.
Expensive being more than 30 bucks, right?

I'm thinking the Sennheiser HD555s, which are currently retailing on amazon for $80, would be the threshold. I edited my post anyway because I'm sure there are $100+ gaming headsets that couldn't justify anything better than the Realtek ALC892.

no, it'll be much lower than that, $30 I would say. Even possibly lower like $20 (Koss KSC-75)

That's one of the three laws of thought. Can you list the other two?
