I have just ordered a Goldring NS1000 headphone and looking for a soundcard with an integrated headphone amp. I am currently just using onboard sound and will be using it mainly for gaming, and occasionally movies, so ideally looking for an X-Fi card of some sort. I know the Auzentech X-Fi Forte fits the bill, but are there any cheaper alternatives? Also, if I had a sound card, would I still be able to have it outputting the sound via HDMI to the TV, or would it only be able to use the ATI HDMI sound? Thanks.
