So I just recently purchased the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium sound card, and Sennheiser PC 360, mainly for gaming but also to enjoy media files. I hooked up my front panel audio connectors from my HAF X to the sound card. My questions is, will I lose audio quality using the front panel inputs, or should I use the connectors directly on the card? I have my Klipsch 2.1s connected to the sound card, so I would hate to physically switch connections between speakers and headset. Thoughts?

You should have the same quality from the front panel using the 3.5mm Connectors. The only time it would change in quality would be if your headset was usb and used its own audio chipset to process the sound.
