i figured as much, but sound cards range from 15_20 all the way to 300+. it would literally only be used to connect my headset to my pc, for gaming. so im assuming that the cheapest option possible would work just fine? headset has a DAC so i dont believe i would need any sort of audio processing...especially for gaming

Question: Does your headset support 5.1? If so, then you likely need a soundcard that supports either Dolby Digital Live or DTS Connect to support getting 5.1 audio out over Optical.
