To be honest, you'd be better of some $100 headphones and a decent soundcard. There is no need for a soundcard that is that expensive to be used with monitor speakers.

As for the headphones - Grado SR80i. I used to use these and I thought they had a nice, warm sound. (upgraded to HD 558s) Amazon.com: Grado Prestige Series SR80i Stereo Headphone: Electronics
Soundcard - Xonar DGX. I think that for $40, this soundcard sets a whole new level for a value soundcard. Amazon.com: ASUS Xonar DGX PCI-E GX2.5 Audio Engine Sound Cards: Electronics

Ends up about the same price ($10 less, yeehaww), and will be much more satisfactory.
