Buying a new gaming headset and soundcard!!

I want to buy an gaming Headset and a sound card. I want a good gaming headset that has good sound and microphone.For the sound card, I want an audio interface sound card that is durable and good. BTW, my motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA78LMT-S2P, so we will need a PCI sound card because my GPU is covering the PCI-e x1 slot :(. My budget is between $50-$100 combined. Is the budget a problem? If it isn't, then go find a good sound card for me! Oh! and don't forgot about the headset too :D.

    If you're getting a soundcard, why waste your money on a headset instead of actual headphones and just a clip-on mic?

    Headphones would still provide better upfront sound, with even more potential if you do buy one down the road. But, since your OP mentioned what you wanted out of a sound card, it seemed like a safe guess that it was relevant.
