The mic jack on my asus p5n sli doesn't work, and I don't want to RMA it, and the only soundcard i could afford if I was buying a headset would be like a 30 dollar soundblaster audigy SE.

the SE is not a bad soundcard at all. I own one and it is a noticeable difference than my Onboard that came with my Biostar 965PT.

is this a good headset, and is it USB or not? I can't find that anywhere, if it's USB i wont' get it, but this + the soundcard price is the right ammount for me after spending 2 gs on my computer.
