Creative Sound Blaster 5.1 VX

Recommended Posts

Hi there. Yes it's me again.

 

Since the audio chip in my mobo sucks I'd like a sound card. I really just want the cheapest I can get, since everything will be an upgrade.

I've been looking at the really cheap Creative Sound Blaster 5.1 VX and wanted to know your opinion on this one?

It's so hard to find reviews on sound cards.

 

And then a little question; there are 4 mini jack in-/outputs on this card, but what do they do respectively?

I do know that the green one is for sound and the blue one is for the mic, but what about the rest?

I'm not sure how much the VX is, but have you considered the Asus Xonar DG? ($25)

As for the connectors on the back of the VX, I found this info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_card#Color_codes

+1 on the Xonar

 

Great sound, headphone amp very nice EQ. Also cheaper than anything else you can put in your computer.

Thanks for your replies. I guess the Xonar would be a good choice, but I've been looking around on used sound cards as well and found this Creative Sound Blaster X-fi Xtreme Audio lydkort. 7.1 very cheap.

Would that be a good deal?

If I am not mistaken the extreme audio has a limited set of features to it. It was either the extreme aduio or the extreme gamer.

 

It's the Xtreme Audio. That card is just a rebadged Audigy SE, totally not worth it.

 

I'd go for any of the ASUS Xonar cards personally.
