The Asus ones are pretty popular for low budget systems:

That's what i've heard too. But would it be possible to have my headset and speakers plugged to the back and then i could switch between them via software. My front panel audio is a little messed up so i cant use it...

I'm afraid thats not possible. Though you could get speakers with a 3.5mm output? I think many of the 2.1 sets come with a 3.5mm output.

But it would still require plugging and unplugging all the time... But i ques that's better than my current set up. rolleyes.gif

i have car amp and 10" sub (that i like) plugged into it with old logitech tweeters, which used to have a subwoofer with them, but i replaced it. the thing with this setup is that i have to use y-connector to plug them to 3.5mm to the back and there is so much wires all over the place. Also the old "subwoofer" amp is sitting on the table useless...
I was thinking, i could buy something to replace the tweeters that i could plug into the car amp and then buy that soundcard.
Would this be a good idea?

So you already have a subwoofer and an amp that can be connected with a 3.5mm plug? Any nearly modern motherboard has at least 3 outputs, one of which is for subwoofer. I don't understand where the Y-splitter comes in?

Haha, glad you got that figured out tongue.gif What's wrong with your front panel BTW?

If my headset is plugged in, the sounds of games and Teamspeak are picked up by the mic and it annoys my friends biggrin.gif

And you're sure you have set up your mic right? There are two different mic input settings as well, one for rear and one for front input. If the mics are set up right then a new soundcard might fix it, but I'm not sure.

Check that both mic inputs have the same settings to see if that fixes it (you might have to plug the mic in to see the settings) smile.gif
