Good Sound Card for Under $50?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well I got some new headphones(sennheiser HD205) which are a HUGE improvement over my old ones. But I think that my onboard sound is holding back some of what my headphones have to offer. So I was wondering if you guys could give me some recommendations/input on what card to get for under $50.

I have also never had anything but onboard sound, but from what I have heard there is a world of difference. I also use headphones/mic almost exclusively for gaming/music(while gaming) if that info helps any.

Thanks all,

Ed

Absolutley nothing else will touch it for that price. $41 shipped for an Xtreme Music is a steal, and Geeks.com is a reputable reseller. It is an OEM version from HP, but should function identically to the "normal" version.

Agreed. That is a great deal. I got mine for $69 a few months ago (OEM as well)
