Sorry but I have to point out that this is more blatant misinformation. A DAC is excellent for gaming. Unless you like all sorts of filters and brand names screwing with your signal path, there is no reason to use a sound card.
BTW, ditch the Promedias. These are so, so, so, so much better for the price
(cheaper, actually.) You will scratch your head wondering what the hell you were thinking if you buy any more "computer speakers".
EDIT2: I wouldn't be so quick to say that The ProMedia are better than the Infinity. You can bet the house that any "multimedia computer speakers" will sound like total arse, and the same is mostly true for infinity, but they're probably close to the same level of performance.Edited by LingLing1337 - 3/1/11 at 3:03pm
