Basically right now im using onboard sound with a 3.5mm headest. I want to be able to hear enemies coming up behind me in games like CS:S & Modern Warfare 2. Will i get better performance and these results out of a plug in usb headset with its own soundcard? or a standalone soundcard coupled with a good 3.5mm headset?

Any links to recommended gaming headsets/soundcards would also be much appreciated! Thanks in advance guys.
