    Best/ideal sound card to use with Roccat Kave 5.1 USB headphones ?

    Hi I am after a sound card for 100% gaming only. It cant be a creative card tho as dont want to use them any more.

    I will be using it with some Roccat Kave heaphones which connect via USB.

    Do sound cards have any bearing on audio transmitted over USB ?
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    afaict the USB is only for power and the headphones actually use 4 3.5mm jacks to carry the sound signal. In which case any 5.1 soundcard should do it - or just use your motherboard's onboard sound (which should be more than acceptable for gaming, frankly).

    Not sure... The Roccat kave headphones have 5 pins which I am guessing you can attach to your sound card for 5.1.
