Good sound card for Logitech X-530's

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey. I recently bought a set of X-530's from eBay for $32.50 shipped. I currently use my onboard Realtek ALC883 sound, but I'm looking for something even better. What's a good sound card for these speakers? I was looking at X-Fi's, but they're quite expensive. I game, but not as often as I listen to music, so I'm just looking for the best bang-for-your-buck soundcard. Good EAX support isn't as important to me as affordability right now. Something $50 or less would be great. Thanks.

bluegears b-Enspirer 7.1 is one of the best but its a little bit pricy. You might find a good bargain at eBay.

Audigy 2 ZS would be a good card.

Thanks. Out of the three, which would sound the best: The Chaintech AV-710, Audigy SE 7.1, or the Audigy 2 ZS?

Well,I've had the Audigy SE 7.1 and have the ChainTech AV-710 currently in my rig.The AV-710 to me is the best sound for the buck!For a sound card under $30.00 it's pretty nice.

Audigy 2ZS is definitely an awesome card for its price. The Audigy 4 is using an identical platform that the 2ZS is but with different drivers. YouPax has modded drivers so that you can have your own Audigy 4 for a fraction of the cost. I actually did this prior to buying my X-Fi. I would not trade my X-Fi for nothing though.
