I believe that with programs like Teamspeak, you can make the voice output only go through your headset speaker, and all the other sounds come out your pc speakers like they are supposed to.

I use these:

They're $14.99 and they are better than a $50 pair I had once.

I don't know about the Guild wars thing though, I never play it.
You read my entire post, then read my sig? What tremendous effort! You win an internet!

Here\'s a quote I saw once on a /b/ forum a while back, I think it\'s funny:

I\'ve been thinking of \"Heck\" lately. If it even exists, it\'s got to be a much nicer place than \"Heaven\". I mean... all the gay men are down there. You KNOW it\'s well decorated.

Note that I do not in any way condone homophobia or am in any way homophobic. I merely thought that it was clever.
