Speakers:

Logitech Z506. Will buy a good headset later.

 

My initial choices:

or

Please suggest me an optimum solution inside $100.

I have a Xonar D2, and love it!

So based on that, I would recommend the DX.

I have had no end of head aches with drivers from Creative and Razer (Barracuda AC-1), so it was very refreshing when I got hold of my D2 to find the drivers completely painless.

Oooo tough choice. I would go with the Omega sound card though. They will probably be very similar, but I think the Omega has slightly better sound quality by like .02% IMO.

What is with you and making up figures hahaha :lol:

That is why I added IMO this time. I am just a very number oriented person. I make up numbers so I can somewhat assess their value. For instance if someone came up to you and said the omega card was slightly better, your very next question would probably be what is your idea of slightly. I simply to to cut out the middle man by giving my opinion in a number format to give a quantitative aspect to my personal (and usually misguided) experience.

Something that should be considered is you gear is only going to sound as good as the worst part the Z506 so unless your mobo sound is noisy I wouldn't bother.

 

By good headset what do you mean? My definition and yours could be very different so what sort of headset would you be thinking of?
