     Hey, I have read the other posts in this thread and there are some great suggestions. But, since my HD-202s got stolen out of my car (my fault) im looking to upgrade to something a bit nicer.   I was impressed with my  202's  and considering they are a 20 dollar pair, im sure the sound in a newer pair of cans has a lot of room for improvement and im interesred in looking into a higher quality pair. This time im mainly going to keep them at my PC for some gaming and mostly music.  Right now im thinking it's only right to pair a new set of cans with a new soundcard also (still running off onboard audio). Im trying to get the best bang for my buck and make this purchase last me for a while.

Im kind of a Sennheiser fanboy but am open to new brands too. Im not wanting to spend much more then 100 for the phones and unsure about the sound card budget for now.

Heres what im considering for now:

Top end of the budget and the best sound quality for my budget imo.

More of a mid range but I think it is a significant decrease in quality

 

Still open to suggestions here but those are what im considering atm.

 

As for sound cards.. I havent really researched much into this department but for money sake I might try and find a cheap Audigy card unless the X-Fi are that much better.

 

Any advice or suggestions are welcome :D

 So I looked at some X-Fi cards today and im really not sure what to go with.. they range from $45-$170 and im not sure that there is much difference other than the X-Ram or w/e.
