Looking for a pair of gaming headsets with a decent mic for around $60 - $100. Mainly for just playing counter strike. Don't give a care about listening to music with it.

This and a Zalman MIC1

Also you may want to get a cheap sound card (Asus DG/DGX sort of thing)

Logitech G930 if you can find it on sale. The regular going price is roughly $150. I'd never pay that much for it but at $100 it's a fantastic value. Wireless, simulated 7.1 sound, decent software to control advanced features, etc

Newegg and Best Buy have it on sale occasionally.

Pretty much this. Aurvana are nice, I got a pair of Samson SR850 with an Asus DGX sound card. Pretty sweet. It's just that Zalman mic was pretty bad. I bought that initially and it picked up wayyy too much background noise. You get what you pay for pretty much. So maybe try it and see if it works. I ended up getting a Blue Snowball mic and have been happy.

I'm looking for a headset. I'd rather just have the headphones and mic combined in one. What do you guys think of the corsair vengeance?
