Little help with selecting sound cards.

Recommended Posts

Alright, so I'm in the market for getting a spiffy new sound card (under $120) to go with the Roccat Kave 5.1 headset.

 

A friend recommended the HT | Omega Striker 7.1.

 

I've also heard that the Creative 70SB088000004 7.1 is also good.

 

Which would you choose? Any other suggestions?

I agree that the Omega would be a very good choice, but also check into the Asus Xonar series. The Asus DX is a great little card and if you can find one, the Asus D2X is even better. I have had nothing but good luck with my D2X!

Thanks for the help, guys. I went with the Omega, as it has an 85% approval rating (including 4/5 eggs), and it'll do what I need it to do.

Because pci vs pci-e means jack when it comes to soundcards having the name omega however means alot.
