ASUS P6T Onboard has died..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Stereo port only throws out Right channel now. Alll the others work fine but I'm sick of the noise that the Realtek chipset throws out.
So I'm looking to pick up a discrete sound card to replace it.

I have my eyes on this Xonar
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-...o-presentation

I'd like to keep it around £50 max. I'd say it'll get used 40/40/20 Games, music and movies. I have it running into a 5.1 set so I need a minimum of those channels.

Any thoughts or suggestions on this card, and maybe another e-tailer with better prices etc?
Or maybe a different card altogether?
Thanks

The DS is a pretty good card for the money, it's what I'm looking at to replace the licensed fake x-fi that came with my Asus CrossHairIII...

Picked up the ASUS Xonar DS.

Highly recommend it. Anything I throw at it sounds amazing. After getting this, I really can't see myself ever having the ability to put up with Onboard again. I couldn't go back to it.
