Help me pick a sound card

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am planning to get a set of these and would like to know what sound card I could get with these so it sounds even better. And I want something good but not ridiculously expensive.

Why not just go digital out to your amp? (You do know you need an amp for those, right?)

No the inputs on the back are for like a mic cable (not the little pink one) and gutiar input and a rca so you can put red into one and white into the other. Then I could plug thoes into a soud card or adapt it to a 3.5mm jack

From the specs: Recommended Amplifier Power:50-150 W (8 Ohms)

A sound card will not drive those speakers.
