Ideally, before you think about a sound card and amp, you want to go out and buy the best headphones/speakers you can afford.


I was going to say the exact thing, but OCN acted up on my end.

I finally decided to get a sound card! But I don't know which one... thinking.gif I need help deciding.

I am going to be mostly gaming/listening to music and need a sound card that will be the best for this under $100.

I will be also using headphones mostly if that helps. smile.gif But still haven't decided what headphones either but I won't be getting anything very expensive like Sennheiser.

I am the exact same boat as you, except, I plan on getting the JVC RX700s.

Xonar DG/DGX is a great card and it's well supported under Win 7. 5.1 sound for speakers, dolby headphone (if that's your thing) and a headphone amp means it will be able to work with a much higher variety of headphones.

Plus at $30 ($40 for the pci-e DGX) you can't beat the price.

I used it exclusively with headphones until I moved to a Fiio E09K/E17 combo recently.
