Greetings, :D 
i am bettween Asus Xonar DG or DX and Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty..and also i want some good headphones or headset that combine with them good...
so basically i am looking for good 5.1(headset) or 3D sound(Headphones)..have done some reasearch and here's what i liked:

Audio technica m50
Audio technica ad700
Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO
CM storm sirus (not for the usb connection)
Corsair vengeance 1300

i want it for good gaming experience (fps,mmo etc), not so much for music (i prefer loud speakers for music).
what should i do? any other suggestions?
thanks ^^

ok considering buying the STX... what do i need to have surround sound for gaming? headphones/headset? or is it neccesary to have an amp like Astro Mixamp?

The Mixamp is mostly used to virtualize surround sound with headphones (and it also acts as an amp, obviously). The soundcard supports DolbyHeadphone which does the same job and it has an headphone amplifier too.
