Default Headphones for gaming.

OK, now that I got this new Auzentech Forte audio card (Audio card for gaming.) I am now thinking about my audio output options. I have a set of Logitec X-530 5.1 speakers, but I would like to get recommendations on headphones. I'm not sure what I am looking for, so I don't know what to expect.

This was a great help to me when I first started looking at headphones.
