New sound card

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone!

I've bought a Gigabyte z97x SLI motherboard. Is not bad at all, but I've experience buzzing noise problems with his integrated audio chipset connecting the audio by jack (front/back panel). I have no problems connecting by hdmi.
I've thinking to buy a new sound card but is the only part in the computer I have no idea at all :S

I got a sound bar 4.1, LG NB4540 and his use is for games and films (nothing professional I mean). I will not connect more audio devices to the computer.

Questions:
- This sound bar will be my device always (not TV, no more devices, just sound bar + computer), what kind of sound card would be better?
- The sound cards which say there are for 5.1 would be able to connect a 4.1 or should I buy a specific 4.1 card? Example1 and Example2


Thanks buddies!! thumb.gif

Honestly in personal opinion, I'd choose Creative, but some would disagree. http://us.creative.com/p/sound-blaster/sound-blaster-audigy-fx
Also the 4.1 will work fine on the 5.1 sound card perfectly fine, just select 4 speakers on the speaker set-up. You just won't have a center channel connection since your speaker system doesn't have a center channel, the output from the center channel will be redirected to your front left and right channels.

"the 4.1 will work fine on the 5.1 sound card".

My integrated sound card is able to reproduce 5.1 and 7.1 but I can't select the configuration for 4.1 so that's my fear about a non specific card for 4.1.
Maybe with sound cards this is different?

Cheers
