Sound card recommendations

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, just a quick question, looking for a simple sound card with an optical output. I recently bought a turtle beach dx12 for the Xbox and PC, in order to use the headset with the "5.1" I need an optical connection which I currently don't have on my PC.

I'm just looking for something for gaming. Any recommendation will be greatly appreciated.thumb.gif

Asus DGX. It is cheap, simple, sound great, and works well.

From what I saw or read, I think the only main difference, the DX12 has the dss2 sound processor while the X12 is only the headset
