Need help from you audiophiles

I am looking for a sound card and a a set of 2.1 speakers. I use my computer for listening to music(mostly FLAC), watching movies(DVDs and Blu-Ray), and playing games. I am looking to spend no more than $300 total, but spending less could be nice. Actually, could I get for under 200 and for under 300? Thanks.


For the sound card...it can be PCI or PCIe x1, doesn't really matter to me.


The speakers...all I know is that I want them to be 2.1 and sound great.

New egg dude.

I don't know what to look for in sound cards and speakers. I also am pretty sure Logan will be able to show me exactly what I want, as this is up his alley.

I think skull candy look 100x cooler than they sound... my brother in law sold his logitech noise canceling headphones that I got him for these... and the logitech sounded 100x better...


he doesn't care.. he just wants to wear the skull candy around miami and look cool.


for sound... get a creative x-fi based card... don't get the xtreme audio. Get one of these cards:

there is SO much money in headphones... they cost the company about $5-$7 to make an awesome pair like that... then they sell them from $50 - $200+!!


we should make RTW headphones with a glowing logo...

$5-7 for a pair that retails for $200?


tell me when to stop crying.

they also probably cost a lot to develop. same with mobo's, cpu's, and graphics cards, most of the money goes to the development. Although i do not know if there is a huge development process behind headphones.
