for that matter, its even possible to use M.2->PCI-E adapter instead, saves some troubles as even ITX could do it, but you lose a perfect SSD slot instead.
if all you can think of DTX is dual GPUs, then thats just so wrong, not creative enough, and not everything can benefit from dual GPUs.

sadly i'm short on things i can choose from, the only ones available are Xonar cards, already bought DX.
and the only available USB Xonar is U5 and U7 which are both inferior to Xonar DX.Edited by epic1337 - 6/10/16 at 6:51pm
