Asus Sabertooth z77 on board audio vs Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty sound card

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey as it says in the title which is better, by the way i have a razer kraken chroma 7.1 headphone which connects through a USB will its sound also have a boost as it would not connect to this sound card obviously. i know both my motherboard and this sound card is old, but this is only the decent sound card available in like 35$ used in my country's gamer forum market place.

this is the link of the headphones : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102019
this is my motherboards specs link : https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/SABERTOOTH_Z77/specifications/

If your using a usb headset you will see zero change at all. Its usb it doesnt touch the sound card in your system at all. if thats all your using with it, its completely useless. unless you are running a high powered set of speakers sound cards are generally useless, there are some select situations that dictate otherwise but if your only using a usb headset you would be better off setting your money on fire and watching it burn xD hope this helps.

Using USB headset bypass any soundcard. No reason even to buy one.
