Best speakers for music /gaming? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
As far as sound cards go, I have an Auzentech X-Fi Prelude and an Asus Xonar Essence STX. The X-Fi is better for gaming due to better positional audio and the Xonar is better for music/movies.

Don't. If your gonna get creative, the only good card is Titanium HD. Fatal1ty is a marketing gimmick. It just has XRAM which is 100% useless (gives you an extra 1 fps). The Xonar DX will definitely be good enough for your setup. Otherwise get a Auzentech Forte (under $100 refurbed) or a Titanium HD.

I don't think sound cards make that much of a difference unless your working with pro-tools etc. As far as speakers go i do like the JBL creature III, but i've been hearing some nice things about SWAN M10's(they just look so elegant i've been tempted to buy them)
