EVGA/XFX 780i onboard audio quality? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
You 100% sure? The FXII uses a normal PCI-E 1x slot unlike the FX I. And the 8800GTS's I am using take up two slots, which leaves me with the middle PCI-E 16x and PCI slot.

Just do what Killa said, get a new Wifi card and use your sound card. The onboard sound is mediocre just like any other mobo's onboard sound.

And what's using one of your PCIe x16 slots? The 780i has two PCIe x16 slots and one PCIe x1 slot

I'd personally just use the onboard audio unless you're an audiophile. It's not *that* bad.

Major difference between the two.

The 780i has 3 PCI E 16x slots....

I have two GTX's and the only slot I have free is the normal PCI between the two.

Alright, the onboard on this board in some aspects, is better than the Audigy SE...and by some I mean one. The highs sound a LITTLE richer. Other than that it is god awful

The 780i onboard isn't that bad actually is it guys!

But even still I just want a sound card to balance my rig and experience more quality sound.

Oh yes, yes it is. The Audugy SE is a low end card to begin with, and the fact that it beats onboard makes the onboard 100% crap, which it is. I'm actually listening to music on my iPod when I'm at home now instead of my PC because it sounds a million times better
