Headphone question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a logitech headset g35 and using it on motherboad sc. Would it sound louder and way better if I purchase a soundcard? And which one would you recommend for it under 100 to get the full potential 7.1 sound that would blow me away.

It will sound a lot better with a dedicated sound card. Only if I could express that through words.

I'm honestly not too educated on sound equipment but the Xonar DX seems fitting for your situation.

As the G35 is USB powered, it will not benefit from a soundcard as it bypasses the analog stage of it. the G35 is a poor purshase value wise tbh.

chinesekiwi is right GoTMaXPoWeR, G35's use software to emulate 5.1/7.1.

Xonar DX would be a good fit though.
