if you have the money, get both.

If CS is more important then get the HD555, if Music is more important, get the new soundcard and a new set of speakers.

As in HD555, you are refering to headphones, correct? Get both. Get the X-fi XtremeMusic sound card off newegg for $117, it is an excellent gaming card and it's really good for music too.
so, umm, err yeah
