itx for gaming? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
The Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe looks to be pretty epic.

The upcoming bitfenix prodigy is supposed to support 2 240 radiators, so if you want to wait for that you should have no problem putting an H100 in there.

EDIT: Being itx you sacrifice a GPU by adding a Sound Card. I think most people are disappointed by the asus board only have 5.1 surround side.

USB DACs are ok..

A good one that is relatively cheap is the Creative SB1090 (Avoid the SB1095 at all costs).

A popular one from China is the Zero DAC. Just be careful with fakes. It is considered really good.

NuForce's uDAC was recommended.

I am not to familiar with them myself but there are plenty of threads on head-fi.org about it.

The Fiio E10 is a good USB DAC, i use one and like it alot, and theyre only about 70$ new, could maybe find one used or something for cheap. It produces pretty good sound quality for the money, recommended quite a bit on headfi.org. I like that its external so I can have it right in front of me to plug in headphones or speakers and use the volume knob, and it doesnt use a pci-e slot i just plug into usb. It also has a pretty good bass boost switch.
