Need some sound card advisement.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Heya guys...

Very recently I've been exploring sound on the PC and my first real attempt was with an Xi-Fi fatality...Needless to say, it ended horribly.

I actually still cannot get the drivers to work...So, I will be selling it asap.

That being said, my new build features an EVGA Z68 FTW and the PCIEx1 slot, is blocked.

Is there a card not made by creative that you guys would recommend?

Ty.

I am really enjoying my Auzentech X-Fi Forte 7.1 card. I am using it with some HPA2's and I have no issues with it. I use it mainly for gaming.

It plays movies pretty good, although some of the treble with brass is a little harsher than an Asus Xonar.

The recording ability of it is awesome though, really good.
