    Well, the Sennheiser RS 170s came this morning. I'm planning on setting them up tonight. One thing I'm wondering about though, is the fact that there is no specific port for the headphones. I'm wondering if it would suffice to plug the audio jack into the one dedicated to the front speakers. Or would it be better to buy an internal sound card. :confused:

    That board has RealTek Audio and an audio connector on the board for the use of a connection at the front of the box. Just plug the headphones in the port at the front and open the UI for the RealTek connections. You can then designate what it was you connected to that port. You can even split/separate/or combine certain types of devices there.

    My own setup is like this....
