USB sound anygood?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Due to having sli setup on my Asus P8P67 Pro I can't fit any PCI cards on my motherboard anymore. I use vent for gaming and ever since I went sli and took my audigy out everyone says my mic is full of noise and I'm not very clear now.

Are the USB soundcards anygood? Anyone got one?

USB DACs can often be better than sound cards, but they'll probably be more expensive.

It's just more cost effective to get an internal solution when you're roughly under $100. You don't need to pay for the power supply and whatnot, but USB sound cards over that price typically always give you better performance than internal components.

Can you link few as I am looking for some okay usb sound cards in 100 - $200 range, and if it is possible to have 4.1/5.1 output.

There really isn't any. After $100 they aren't really sound cards, they will be purpose built. Such as MIDI devices, studio recorders, or just purely a DAC. Plus they only tend support stereo most of the time.
