Hey all. Right now I'm using 7.1 sound of off my motherboard with a set of wireless Logitech 930s. I'm not impressed and I want sound that is gonna be awesome. I play games and listen to music. The headphones also have distortion with high bass from games and music.

I want to replace the headphones and find a great sound card that perfectly compliments to create a sound in both games and music that makes u drool. Not worried about cost within reason (thousands is out of the question).

So that said? Any suggestions????

Sound is a subjective matter that's why I suggest you buy a tunable card
both Creative and Asus sell cards that you can switch out parts to better suit your tastes. Though they sell for approximately $190.
If you want better sound you'll need good speakers,a cheap set of speakers or headphones won't allow the better cards to shine.

For a 7.1 system, the best options from each manufacturer [that I can recommend]:

ASUS Xonar D2(x)
ASUS Xonar Xense

Auzentech Meridian 2G
Auzentech Bravura
Auzentech Home Theatre HD

HT Omega:
HT Omega Claro+
HT Omega Claro Halo
HT Omega Claro Halo XT

A lot comes down to price and features.
