good sound card

Recommended Posts

Most onboard sound is good enough.

Sure if you like muffled/distorted sound.

 

I'm hearing good things about Asus Xonar D1 it's around $90 give or take.

But if you're a hardcore gamer, you might want to go for an X-fi for the EAX effects.

onboard is not that bad with a current motherboard

they typically hav 7 channels, hdmi out, and optical out

 

I personally have the HT omega which I bought a few years ago

asus has come out with a bunch of new cards you should check those out too

Might have been true for older on board sound, but not so much anymore..

 

My suggestion is to listen to the onboard first, for a few days, then you can decide if a sound card is needed.

Today you will hardly find a PC which can't emit sound. The sound accompanies you everywhere - starting from a greeting in the Windows to MP3 compositions, different games and animation on the Internet (Macromedia Flash) followed by outcries of the ICQ.

 

During the last years computers much improved their quality. It is not only CPU which evolved, but all other components also. The user's requirements are also increasing. If 10-15 years ago you could be satisfied with hoarse sounds from a small speaker built in the case, today's attribute of a personal computer is a specialized sound subsystem.
