Unless you play BC2 religiously, I'd avoid all of those Creative cards.

So, I'll recommend ASUS cards.
The STX is better than the DX is better than the DG. Get whichever you are comfortable with spending money on. All are great options. The STX might be more "future proof" since it'll allow you to use most higher-impedance headphones without a seperate amp.
Okay thanks. I just didn't know between the STX or the DX because I heard the DX is more for gaming and STX is for movies/music. If the STX is best for gaming, movies, and music, I'll surely get it and try to future proof myself, even though you can't really future proof yourself. Thanks again.

Yeah, the STX will be better in music and gaming compared to the DX. Enjoy your new build!
