Hi,

I bought a pair of Creative Aurvana Live! for gaming and music. How do I set up Dolby Headphone or Creative CMSS3D so that I can play with virtual surround sound in my games?

What sound card do you have?

It's the integrated sound card on my laptop (Dell Latitude XT3, if that matters)

Then you can't implement either of them. You need a Creative/Auzentech (for CMSS-3D) or ASUS/HT Omega (for Dolby Headphone) sound card in order to get those DSP's.

Okay, thanks. Are there cheap external sound card options?

This is the cheapest external soundcard with a amplifer and dolby headphone.
