Soundcard and Headphones suggestions.

I know, I won't need a soundcard. The onboard audio on the MSI M5 is already great. But I am willing to spend money on one; what would be the best suggestion under 100 USD? And for Headphones, what would be the best under 100 USD? I would prefer a red and black theme or just black.

Thanks.

Soundcard and Headset.

If you'd like headphones without a mic then I'm not quite sure... I'd have to look around on Amazon or something for a bit to figure that one out.

Can i just take that as $200 total?

Dac (close enough) + headphones

I would suggest this dac, but it would be over budget

If you don't need a soundcard don't buy one lol.

Sennheiser HD 558 is $69.99 at Fry's and $89.99 at best buy, should be great for gaming and music.

Well, I don't need a 250$ case, but I want one and I am getting it. Same thing applies to this soundcard :P. And will those be compatible with the MSI M5 motherboard?

Yes. Any headphone that uses a 3.5mm jack will be compatible.

i wouldn't recommend getting a sound card get a amp such as the mayflower objective 2 as for headphones the cloud 2's

the mayflower amp is the amp youtubers such as barnacules nerdgasm and jayztwocents i think use and quote it beats amps worth more then $1000

The O2 is worse than the Schiit Magni 2 which is the same price and also not needed for the HyperX Cloud
