I used to have one, it was amazing. I am going to order another one fairly soon.
I could definitely notice a huuuuuuuge difference when I used the Musiland over other soundcards/onboard. It was one of the best things I ever bought for my PC after the SSD. It really does make a huge difference in sound quality.
(PC360 headset) - therefore a USB DAC won't swing it for surround sound in games or movies (Razer Surround software could be used via USB, but it isn't that good at all). An external DAC/Amp with optical in would work though, in conjunction with his existing DG.
OP - go with the STX. There won't be a great difference in games, but music will sound superb.
