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:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826106931

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.

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.
