What would you change in my rig? - Page 2

post #11 of 31
You will notice a great change with a nice sound card if you use headphones for sure. I personally found it just sounds better overall. More crisp then HD onboard sound.

I am intrigued now, if I will notice a nice difference I think i'd be willing to put $50-80 towards a sound card. Any recommendations?

My friend has this sound card and I tired it out because I plan on buying it. I like it and the sound it produces. I would check out this card;

Creative 30SB088200000 7.1 Channels 24-bit 24 bit 96 kHz ADC

When the prices drop a little more I may end up another SSD or two.

Also I'll be willing to trade my 6970 + 450 for one of your 580's

So upgrades I may get soon:

Sound Card
2nd 6970 (price drops)

Any brand recommendations you guys suggest?

For sound card, Get Creative. Like the one I posted above. Although, there are other good companies out there, But Creative is what I've been using for like ever now and never had any problems.

For graphics card, SAPPHIRE or XFX.

I haven't heard too much on the XFX, I think they just had a really good warranty? Also MSI I heard was really good for cooling. I don't know what is so special about the Sapphire, I know people liked the Toxic 6950 series because it had a high chance to go to a 6970.

I said SAPPHIRE because of a personal preference. Yes, MSI is really good for cooling I've heard since the card comes equipped with two fans compared to your normal one fan.
