Sound Card to go with the HD 598's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be purchasing the Sennheiser HD 598 headphones soon and would like to know which sound card I should get to complement it.

I have about $50 to spend on the sound card (that includes shipping). It has to be a PCI sound card.

I was reading reviews on the ASUS Xonar DG, and it seems like a good deal for only $30 shipped.

Any thoughts on that sound card, or other recommendations? Thanks.

You can check out OCN's Most Recommended Audio Products thread.I think you will find it very helpful.

Meanwhile,you can take a look at the Asus Xonar DG.

I plan on using them mainly for gaming and for some music/movies. I'd say the ratio would be 80:20.
