Well, besides the fact the megolodon stinks (get the Logitech G35 if you go that route), it must be pointed out that USB headphones ignore the soundcard.

I generally recommend a soundcard (Xonar DX makes more sense then the D1 at this point) and a decent set of 5.1 speakers, but to each his own.

The DX is a newer model compared to the D1, but after looking at the spcs again, it looks like they are essentially the same otherwise, so both should be fine.
