Hey, i'm going to be buying the "Audio Technica ATH-AD700" for my next gaming headphones and i was wondering if i would NEED a sound card to get full potential out of these headphones.

If so, can anyone point me in the direction of a good Sound Card for gaming?

After a quick search through the forums I found these, but there seems to be many conflicting views. As I said, I'm no audiophile but the one I mentioned earlier and these three seem to be popular.

or by searching the forums, just type "soundcard" in the search box, more links than you will want to read will come up.
Hope this helps, good luck.

lol, that part of the reason why I stopped using them. I'd rather put the money toward other components and I could never see the sense of buying a rubbish soundcard.
