Windows 7: Upgrading my headset w/ mic

Upgrading my headset w/ mic

I'm using a Plantronics headset w/mic that uses 3.5 male jack.

I have the mic cable plugged into the "mic" port on the back of the computer and the other cable on the headset I ran up to my desk. I can either listen threw the speakers or I can plug the cable into my speakers so I can listen threw the headset and cuts off the speakers.

I want to purchase a new USB headset like the following. Plantronics )) View Cart / Checkout

How can I set it up so I can still either listen threw the the speakers or the headset.

I heard that there is a right-click function on the speaker icon. Would that work.

I'm trying to anticipate the switch-over to Win 7 yet this year.
