    Soundcard or headset?

    Assuming you had $200 to spend on audio. Here's the dilemma: I have a set of Icemat Siberia's. They sound pretty good. I'm using on board sound right now. Would you spend $200 on a new sound card or $200 on a new headset? Which would give you the greatest improvement?

    Logitech G35 Headset Review

    Ahhh, headset reviews, these are difficult at best because it's sort of like reviewing food. Not everyone likes the same thing. Some people like flat sound, some people like bass heavy, others, like a bit more midrange...it's all a matter of taste. Now, with that said, there is such a thing...
