Alright, i'm looking at returning the STX. I bought a new motherboard, a Asus P8Z77 WS. I am putting in four Video cards in SLI. Therefore, I will not have any pcie slots to put the card in.

So, I am looking at options again.

For the record, you can REALLY hear the difference without the sound card. The headphones drivers vibrate on your ears with the Xonar STX, I'm talking about base so loud it moves the headphones. without it, even having volume at 100% with loudness on, and bass boost enabled; you can barely hear the base.,

I am assuming you are looking for USB sound cards? In that case the Asus Essence One is pretty good, although somewhat pricey.

I was thinking the reviews are buy speakers good for something like this.


ASUS Xonar DGX 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Gaming Audio Card for $40.

Or the Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty Professional (70SB135600000) 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card is on sale for $80.

However, i do not like to waste money, unless it is a noticeable difference, I find it hard to justify the cost.


Thanks!
These on board sound cards will make some difference. It will depend on the quality of sound card but still you should not expect huge improvement in sound quality.
