I'd quite like to upgrade my PC's sound a bit. I'm looking to achieve two things:
1. A better headset. I've got a 5.1 set that's ok, but getting a bit old now, not the greatest quality.
2. A setup where I can have 2 or 2.1 speakers, but just plug in a headset and have that override the speakers.
I value low signal to noise and a quality sound (though I'm no audiophile). I also value good directional sound in gaming, though I'm not sure if you need a 5.1 or 7.1 headset to do this, or if a regular stereo headphones produce a good surround effect with a decent sound card? Infact I don't know if you need the sound card these days, do the usb headsets do the job well?
I've got an x-fi fatality somthingorother sound card in pci-express, though I'd happily swap this for something else if it gives me the setup I want.
So yea, recommend me a headphone/speaker/sound card setup that fits the bill.
