Thread Starter 
Which one should i go for? I currently have Plantronics GameCom 377 Headset i am using, but using onboard audio.

Are you going to buy better headphones in the near future? If not, get Xonar DGX or stick with onboard.

E: If it's not clear for you, the headset is too low quality to justify buying better soundcard.

This Essence STX is one of my favorite sound cards ever! The Phoebus is one of the poorest I have ever used. Terrible drivers and software that simply adds nothing to my gaming experience.
