If i were you, i would had gone with the Crucial C300 64GB SSD. It's on sale on NE atm for $99 and you can bring it down to $90 by using $10 of $50 coupon for new customer. It'd be a huge improvement for you over your HDDs instead of a meh sound card.

I say go for the sound card. Then you will convert all of your audio into FLACs to really let it shine. Then youll say, oh, i need more high quality headphones. Then youll want to convert your main setup into a really nice one with some epic studio speakers.

So you'll end up with no hard drive space and massive debt.

On second thought, maybe just save a bit longer and get a 128 gig SSD

Saving 5-10 seconds at boot isn't what an SSD is known for. A good RAID 0 array can do the same. What an SSD brings is crazy access time, which helps across the board. And it's silent. And you can duct tape it to the roof of your case and never see it again I PERSONALLY would go 1) SSD. 2) Xonar. 3) Replace all of my fans with something other then CM R4's.

Nice pick though, but I would have definitely went with a Xonar DX 7.1 for just a few bones more. You won't be disappointing either way though!

I will gladly take your R4s off your hands.

Why don't you just save the money and spend it later?

I'd rather wait until I have $200 to buy a quality SSD as opposed to a cheap 32gb one.

Even better, save it and not spend it at all.

I love these kinda threads. They always help me decide more of what I want. If you have a decent audio setup I would go with this audio card. It is low priced and the performance is great.

Sound card:


20 bucks more:
Hopefully that will help you make up your mind
