Windows 7: Need help with audio devices! (Video Game Recording Setup)

Need help with audio devices! (Video Game Recording Setup)

Ok, so atm I'm using a USB Logitech G35 headset with microphone. I don't have any external speakers plugged into my computer and my monitor doesn't have any speakers. The G35 is my only source for listening to sound on my comp.

So if I was to record footage of video games for instance, how would I record the sound from the game and skype/mumble chat, whilst still being able to hear both the game and chat on my headset?

To simplify it, I want to know if the following is achievable:

Headset - Play Game Sound & Chat (via Skype/Mumble)
Fraps/Dxtory - Record Game Sound & Chat (via Skype/Mumble)

at the same time

When I've recorded little clips in the past, 'Stereo Mix' seems to be playing game audio on the recordings, but I can't hear it via my headset at the same time

Would I need to buy a splitter cable for instance?
