Decent gaming sound card for use with a headset

Recommended Posts

Not looking for anything fancy or expensive but for a sound card that will take the audio's load off the cpu while giving me good sound through a mid-range headset. At most I'd like some stereo to Surround Sound emulation. Could any of you offer some suggestions?

What headset will you be using? What budget do you have in mind?

The Xonar seems like a perfect fit, thanks!

 

Gonna be using Turtle Beach X11's on it. Nothing fancy.

I have some turtle Beach X11 with the digital input thing. It is a really nice headset. Tho i think the bass response on them could be a bit better for the price they are getting for them.

Is it too late to go with the corsair 1300 headset? It has a pseudo sound card integrated into it, so it could fit your needs easily enough.

Yeah I've had the X-11's for a year now, it's a solid set. I also have the DSS or "digital input thing" but is currently and somewhat perma attached to my xbox. I totally agree with the bass response on the X-11's. They make the DSS's bass boost pretty pointless.

 

I am in the market for a second headset so I don't have to keep moving the spiders web of cords every time I switch between comp and Xbox. I'll look at the Corsair set you mentioned Angel.

 

Did I mention OCC rocks?
