Depends on what you are looking for. If you game a lot and use Asus's gaming software, even a DG is fine. If you have a lot of interference in your computer case, DAC/AMP combo might be the way to go for you. There are also varying opinions of just how much of a sound improvement you get. I personally feel the improvement going from DG to ODAC was huge. Others may disagree. I advise you to try and audition it first or purchase them used for cheap.

Well i dont live in any area able to test anything, i have to choose and cross my fingers, i dont play games that require "gaming" sound cards, i want 70% music 10% gaming, i only play League of legends and Indie games, which sound perfect with what i have now, (just a crappy razer headset) i would LIKE to have it INSIDE the case, but i dont know if ill get interferance or not, i have never had any issues with my old creative card or my current on board audio, Asus seems to do a great job.

Inside should be fine with one caveat:

If you can, use the rear ports on the card. As OC'ing Noob said, even the $30 DG (or $40 DGX) will be just fine for you (the only difference in ASUS cards is the *X versions are PCI-e). I use it, and I love it. I've considered getting an external DAC/AMP, but I think I want to get something portable first so I can comfortably listen while traveling.

Asus DG will work for you then. If you plan on purchasing more audiophile equipment in the future, you could consider a DAC/AMP combo. TBH, no one can answer that question for you. It really depends on what you hear and if you believe what you hear. It all comes down to budget and "perceived" audio quality difference. I love my ODAC because I can carry it around to use with any computer easily if necessary. If you do get a DAC, you HAVE TO get an amp, either as part of the DAC or an independent amp.

The K550's sound similar to the Q701's in that they are both really accurate, bass included. The K550 has a bit more bass, but smaller sound stage due to the closed design. It is however much more efficient than the Q701's.

Don't worry, they have a good home thumb.gif
