looking to get sound card for my 2.1 speaker

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
http://www.overclock.net/audio/95861...eme-gamer.html i've been looking for sound card at the for sale section and i saw this one. is this any good sound card? will i hear any difference since im using a 2.1 speaker and im wont be able to use this for my headset since mine is usb.

is it ok to put audio card on the top of psu fan? they're almost close together if i added this card

BTW.
and also this card is pci slot and my card is in crossfire mode.
is pci slot for sound card nad pci-e is for gpu card?
im just confused with pci and pci-e slot

That card is a hella ripoff. 55 dollars used? You can buy it on ebay for 30 bucks new.

For 50 dollars, I would be a Xonar DS. Much better card for the money.

Would help knowing what kind of 2.1 speakers you have though. Still, the Xonar DS would still be recommended either way. It's PCI as well. Sound cards can be PCI or PCI-e. They're pretty much both the same so doesn't matter which you use.
