I've read the last few pages here and it seems that getting something like the Asus Xonar DG would be a relatively cheap and good solution to help with CS. Even the audiophile section/thread here says so pretty much. Is this case or do I need to spend some more dosh on something of better value? I'd honestly prefer not to buy an Asus soundcard but if that's the best option I'll do it.

DG/DGX are good budget options, in that case if you don't like it you haven't lost much, but you'll see an improvement over onboard with them. Otherwise a DX or a Creative Sound Blaster Z would be good options if you want to spend more.
Stupid question, but explain to me what you mean by "if I dont like it".

If a soundcard is suppose to be an improvement, why would I not like it? Plus I'm sure it comes with some software to set it up nicely, and as long as I have EQ settings I'll be happy.

Oh, I don't like asus because I've had terrible experience with them. Mostly motherboards and laptops.

Soundcards are a totally different department so that's why I'm willing to try them out.

The Asus drivers aren't that great, but there are community options out there - I think they've improved the official ones recently though. The cards themselves are really good, a huge amount of people recommend them and people I usually play games with own Asus cards. Not sure what Creative drivers are like for their newer cards, they're still bad as ever for my old X-Fi. I haven't read about a lot of issues though, so should be alright.

@ dmasteR

Get_Right said he was going away for a couple of days, but earlier on said he was going to be playing. Hopefully we'll see the proper NiP come out. k1ck up 13-2 on Dust2 at the moment too, wow.

I haven't had any issues with the Asus drivers but some have and said the Uni Xonar drivers took care of it. Here is a link in case someone ends up needing it:

Also the Xonar switch software that lets you hotkey different profiles is really handy. I do use it and I love it:

http://maxedtech.com/xonarswitch-beta-testing/

I have the Xonar DGX and really for $25 you can't go wrong.

Also, I tossed a small bet on HR in the HR vs. NiP match. Fingers crossed even if Get_right is playing they haven't fared that well against HR in the past.

I had a DG, I would definitely recommend the Uni Xonar Drivers over the Asus ones. If you run into install troubles with the driver you'll probably just have to go into test mode.

Ya, I can't believe how good k1ck was doing on dust2. k1ck had fantastic teamwork and the AWP shots through DD.

Then Nuke has been a shambles really, they seemed to keep playing really aggressive when it wasn't working for them. Few simple mistakes causing them to lose out too.
