ASUS Xonar ST, it might be a little overpriced for what if offers but it still worth the $200

Do you want one ? It's up to personal preferences . If you use a receiver then not . If you don't , then everything over on-board sounds better . I recommend you Auzentech . They have great sound cards . Expensive but great !!

Here.

X = Cost of Speakers
Y = Money you should spend on a sound card.

Y = X / 2.5

If Y < 50
{
UseOnBoardSound();
}
else
{
BuySoundCard();
}

Never heard of that . What is that ? A receiver ? If so , definately don't buy one as no matter how high the quality of the sound that enters a receiver , the output one is different = waste .

It they're speakers then you could buy a sound card .

P.S.:Sorry for my english / i'm romanian .

If you venture to the Head-Fi forums you can pick up an X-Fi Titanium HD for less than $100.

Great card and definitely worth the price.

This card is on sale for almost half off and from what I understand, it is a great deal.
