Thing is most "gaming hardware" is nothing but a marketing ploy.

You could get such good sound and results from using high end brand name audio equipment instead of overpriced so called "gaming hardware". I can understand the mouses, but headphones and speakers/soundcards....nah theres way better for around the same price.

Yes sp8's are studio monitors, but theyll blow you away with the sound they have. they output so much bass, a subwoofer isnt needed.

have you ever heard a set of $1000 plus speakers? when I heard them for the first time, I was blown away. the sound is completely different. If I had the money, I would buy speakers that cost several thousands. a pair of really nice speakers would totally change the way you heard your games, if you have an ear for high end sound.
