130$ is a rip off considering it's an old socket. Should have sold cpu\mobo\ram and get something new instead

I think you need to check yourself before you start making such remarks. That is not only inappropriate, but you were the one who posted random dribble in the incorrect board. So feel free to take that crap someplace else.

In case you haven't noticed, this isn't SW. And yea I saw that you posted your PC the first time, then you started attacking, leave that in SW where it belongs.

The head phones are Samson SR850's. I love them. Nice and balanced. http://www.amazon.com/Samson-Semi-Open-Studio-Reference-Headphones/dp/B002LBSEQS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1334515280&sr=8-1 You can see in the bottom right corner, I have a Line 6 UX1 for recording guitar with, and is also my audio output device too. The speakers around my monitor are just generic logitech speakers I use when console gaming.

Samson huh? Never heard of them before but people keep recommending them on these boards. What other brand would they be comparable in its class?

I really couldn't tell ya. These are my first pair of studio headphones, but they were recommended to me by a friend who has used Sennheisers and other high end headphones. He said they were the best bang per buck, so I just went with them.

That has to be the worst setup I've seen on GS in a while. Seriously, the components are good, but do they not sell cases over there in Hungary? WTF bro? LOL.
