    Alright, I believe I have decided to go with the Corsiar Vengeance 2000's because of how good the 1500/2000's look, but I would enjoy the benefits of a wireless headset.

    Thanks for the help guys. :D

    To my knowledge wireless headsets often disconnect a lot. I could be incorrect but I have read so many times.
    The Vengeance 1500's have a VERY long braided cable, long enough so I can actually move about my room (which is quite small) and usually not have to take them off.
    Also, while they aren't true 7.1 surround sound (I'm not even certain what they mean by that) it is still very surround sound-y. Especially when listening to electronic music.

    Must explain why my old ones were going out so often.
    A wired one seems nicer at the moment because my last one stopped holding a charge up until the battery fried today. Honestly, I don't have much of a preference for wired or wireless, just anything would be nice right now because I can't talk or hear audio without waking people up.

    Honestly, I would love to record videos -edit- I just don't have the software for it -edit-. What I am looking for is a headset that can get good sound quality and have a decent/good microphone on it.

    The headsets that I'm considering are:
    Corsiar Vengeance 2000
    Logitech G39/G930

    What is your budget though? The one I recommended is ~$100.

    Ah the budget! I forgot, I can go up to 200$ if necessary. :P

    Hello, my previous headset (SB WoW Wireless Headset) has kicked the bucket after two years of use. I do not plan on getting another as it was somewhat of bad quality (randomly turning off, distortion on audio, bad drivers... etc.) so I am stumped as I don't know much about headsets.

    So my questions are:
    1. What headset do you use and do you recommend it?
    2. What are the drivers like? Good or bad?
    3. Are they comfortable for gaming sessions of eight or more hours at a time?

    Thanks to everyone that can help. :D

    Just wait for the 8000 series that are coming soon, according to rumors.

    Sounds like I better plan than I originally devised. Thanks for talking some sense into me.

    Um really, here's my say on this. I agree with TheRacker. You already have one of the top tier cards at the moment. For this current time, getting another 7950 will give you more performance boost than any other card for a 380$ value. But in the future, around let's say 3 years, there might be a single GPU card that will trump both your 7950s for around 500$ (just guessing here though).
    So if you really want to, go ahead.
    I'm no expert on Micro-stuttering, but it just makes your games look really bad, and gives you lower fps. Not sure if it's permanent, but if a simple reboot is all it takes to fix the issue, then I'd get that extra 7950, if you really need it.

    Yeah, that's what I am thinking at the moment in terms of not needing it. I am just a thick skulled ******* I suppose. :P

    I quite frankly don't feel like dropping more for another card, considering I built this recently. I think what I should do is just wait one to two years when another powerhouse of a card comes along when I actually need it to play high end games, and then I should upgrade.

    Thanks for the help guys, and I am pretty sure that I will just not be too concerned with it. (I can just edit the video settings a bit so I get a few more fps anyway)

    If you want to play max at 60 FPS, you may look into upgrading into a GTX 680, which runs at around 72 FPS maxed on 1920x1080 IIRC. Microstuttering will be a big factor in your crossfire setup, while the 680 has zero microstuttering. I would personally go for the 680 over a 7970 or xFire 7950's. Just my 2c

    Hmm, seems to be well within my price range as well. I shall give it a look

    People on here way exaggerate micro stuttering and no one here has a cfx rig. Do it if you want, it isn't that bad, it depends more on the game.

    My situation is that the 7950 I am using is running BF3 on High [not Ultra] at around 50 fps. I was thinking if I were to CF with another it would allow me to play on Max at 60 fps. Frankly, I am not too sure what I should do with some people saying CF is bad and some say it is fine. I don't know if it would even be beneficial to upgrade or just to wait it out.

    Well, I can't really give any first hand example for this mouse as I have not received it yet, (I just ordered it :P) but it seems to be a generally good one. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6524874

    Again it is up to you to decide on it.

    no, but it would make it look like it was 30FPS due to microstuttering, Crossfire is NOT worth it, moreso when that card can already max BF3

    Ugh, I heard about micro stuttering but that is outrageous. :P
    I suppose if I decide to upgrade I will get a 7970 and overclock the thing. Thanks for the help.

    Hello, I am thinking about adding another 7950 to my rig, (overkill in most situations, but I like the best performance possible while being on the highest possible settings) and I was wondering if adding another card would cause any complications in my current build. [Not enough power, bottle necking, etc...]

    Here is my current computer http://pcpartpicker.com/p/9JD5.

    If anyone could get back to me relatively quickly it would be great.
    :D

    Yup, just go with what Xaanos suggested.

    Alright, I suppose I will order it some time in the next hour or so. Can't wait to actually have a good monitor for the rig I built.

    It is LED backlit.

    Asus VS247H-P 24" Class Widescreen 2ms LED Backlit Monitor

    I am assuming that is good. This is my first monitor purchase (the one I have now was given to me) and I don't really know much about the specs on a monitor.

    So it is good? I'm confused.
