Looking for sound card for only headset usage.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I had a Extreme Music for years now but new setup as in motherboard don't have a PCI slot only PCI express so I'm looking for a card. I really want it to play music the best it can biggest deal yes I would like it to game OK also but music is number one. I also only use head sets I have a stealseries siberia V2s and some monster DNAs that I got for free (someone lost them in my yard never came looking for them I would not buy them) So short story for free I use them. So I don't need a card that is like crazy going to be running crazy speakers I just want the best bang for headset usage as my on board is just not working for me can't change much and it does not get close to as loud as my old card. Anyways tried to look around but it seems most people don't really say they will use just a headset so looking for good info.

The best bang for buck will be the Asus Xonar DGX. It includes a headphone amplifier and costs approximately $30.

My vote also goes for Xonar DG(X). No need for more expensive card if the headset you are using is Plasticseries.
And remember to use Unixonar drivers. I cant understand ppl who install drivers from the product CD.
