Well the more i am looking for reviews about products the more confused i get it seems.
I seen a lot of benchmarks that state that the NZXT kraken x61 beats the Cooler master nepton 280L and others claim the other way around..
So as for sound cards, i seen a lot of ridiculous claims on youtube and one channel called Tek Syndicate even said that an onboard sound card is just as good as an dedicated card that is designed for it... and that is coming from a guy that actually works with audio so he claims..
I think some people who do reviews are from another reality lol
but anyway, i heard some good things about the Asus cards and the x-Fi cards as well.. so it all comes down to what kind of sound i like the most and to test that i need to actually buy one of them and find out i guess.
I do want a sound card that has an DAC inside so that is why i looked for the Creative x-Fi elite pro. And yes, for only 40 euro's i suppose you are right that i can't go wrong.
