Is the Astro A30 a good headset for PC and c------s?

I'm thinking of buying an Astro A30 Audio System (http://www.astrogaming.com/a30-audio-system/A30-AUDIO-SYSTEM-ASTRO.html) to replace a Turtle Beach XC1 for my X*** *** (what I do wrong?). Is it a good headset? If not, what's a good alternative that uses 2.5mm optical, 3.5mm optical and USB under $150?
