Any way to get game chat through a headset and audio through speakers?

Like how game chat works on the consoles?

Is the only way to get an audio card and split the two in control panel?

Yeah. Just plug the speakers into the speaker input and plug the headset mic into the headset input. If your headset doesn't have a separate mic input, go to playback and recording devices and you can set it there.

Some say that his voice can only be heard by cats, and that he has two sets of knees... all we know is, he's called the Stig.

If you're using skype or teamspeak you can generally tell it to use a particular output/input, so set that to your headset and then set the speakers as your default audio device.

In Windows you need to set the headset and headset mic as the default communication devices in their respective tabs under the Sound control panel.
