New card

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I need a new sound card. Mainly for gaming, but sometimes also for music and movies.
I'm thinking about:

X-Fi Gamer
Asus Xonar ST
Asus Xonar D2



Did ASUS really causes problems in new games?

You mean onboard. Anyways, the Asus Xonar DX is good. The Asus Xonar Essence ST (the pci version) and the STX (the pcie version but some say the pci version sounds better because of I think it was called the clocking circuit or something. I'm not a pro at this stuff. I'm still a noobish person). Asus also has the Xonar Xense which comes with a PC350 headset. I also heard the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD was a good card because it has a better onboard DAC than other cards.

What headset/speakers do you use?
What's your price limit?

There is no limit, headphones do not have - I'm going to buy them. Maybe Hd555?

Unfortunately, I can only those cards, because I have to quickly buy and do not have time to bring such as Audiotrak / Auzentech

Speakers - Creative 5300 5.1 - I use rarely, so please do not look at them
