Slowly building my gaming rig - haven't played in almost 2 years :(
2900XT is on it's way (hopefully), just waiting for aftermarket coolers.
I was at Circuit City a couple of days ago, saw their gaming room, boy, those G15 look good:banghead: Decided to buy one, but then got Belkin Nostromo N52 - it's AWESOME!!!


Anyway, was really impressed with their earphones setup. I want some for myself.
Due to lil kids ...oh...and wifey too:respect: can't go with a "normal" setup: subwoofer etc.
So what kind of setup: earphones (preferably wireless, if possible) and do I need a sound blaster as well?
Something good, but not BOSE good ;)

My motherboard Asus M2R32-MVP: Onboard Audio

Thanks

You don't need a Soundblaster, but one couldn't hurt. My old Asus board had damn good integrated audio. As far as headphones go, I use Logitech, simply because they were cheap lol...but they are surprisingly good...
