I brought the sound card because on my previous build Asus p67p evo the onboard was crap I wanted slightly more amplification and an equalizer for my CM Storm 5.1 analogue headphones as poor bass response. I did look at a USB sound interface but at the time they were too expensive and only the creative Sound Blaster was available in NZ and the driver issues put me off I had a spare PCIE slot spare so it made sense at the time.

I'm not actually using the on-board sound but I wouldn't use a sound card either unless there was a reason I absolutely had to... I would however, be using the onboard sound for digital output if ASUS hadn't seen fit to sell me a board with a dead TOSLINK transmitter...mad.gif never use analog output from anything if I can help it... that's better handled away from the computer (or any large power supply for that matter IMO).

So, the ALC898 is definitely superior in some aspects to the ALC892 that you had on the P8P67EVO - but it's certainly nothing to write home about. On the other hand - I still consider it no better or worse than most ~$100 sound cards. I like the XONAR ST in cases where it truly shines - as a very capable headphone amp in a system with no other ASIO-capable output options. On the other hand when the TOSLINK is used from the ALC898 to a capable DAC... it's all you would ever need. For that matter, the exact same applies to the ALC892 - I always run speakers or headphones from an AVR or DAC+Amp combo.

This is my current "sound card":


There are definitely cheaper versions - but I already had a 650C and 650A combo from Cambridge Audio... for 'general listening' in my home office... so why not keep with the same aesthetic I figured. biggrin.gif

Note that I didn't say it was a 'reasonable alternative' economically... depending on whether you count the 650A and the speakers connected to them... I probably have a $1500 'sound card' on my rig. However, even a mid-range AVR should be able to drive any set of headphones or consumer-grade passive monitors with ease and will cost about the same as a higher-end sound card if you buy it used or get a close-out deal and they will all have optical inputs and a good 24bit 96kHz capable DAC section.

for the upgrade what card are u thinking to buy and what is the budget a Gtx 690 solve ur problem biggrin.gif but expinsive

Most likely a 7950, then another one some weeks later, unless I can find a GTX 670 at a decent price.

The only issue is that I can't seem to find a blower style 7950 anywhere, because of this I'm leaning towards 7970.

I'm sorry but the on board sound quality compared my Creative Z sound card is crap.

Sorry to hear about the broken TOSLINK but Nice DAC
I guess it comes down to what you use you rig for. I only use mine 99% of the time for gaming and a youtube that's why I have 5.1 analogue headphones more for enemy directional position finding it is ok but not as good as advertised.
I looked at the time for a 5.1 DAC but price and availability again put me off.
I couldn't justify more than a few hundred dollars for pc audio when I use my home stereo for music and movies. I have a friend that's an audiophile
I have had a listen to his set up I am not sure what his DAC is I remember he said it was 1w output. But the headphones OMG I couldn't believe the price I think they cost twice same of what I paid for my whole home theatre system.
The clarity was there it did sound good but it was not for me I would not appreciate them, here is a pic of them.

I wasn't too happy with the on board audio from my MVG, just recently gotten a Schiit Magni and I think it works great with my Beyerdynamic DT 770's.

You don't need to spend >$150 on a sound card to get better audio quality then the Suprerme FX IV. Heck, even a $50 card will sound better.
