All depends on budget but don't stress about getting an internal card, if you want akg q701's you should be spending some money on a dac.

That was essentially my question, whether to get a DAC or get an internal sound card. So DAC it is, I guess thumb.gif

I would suggest asking here to see what people think would be the best dac and or amp for you.

Will be a gaming/folding rig, so I won't be hooking it up to a receiver.
