Hey, I'm building a gaming computer for my dad and he asked me to get Bose speakers for him. Heres what I have so far. Would like to add a 64 or 128 SSD for OS and a few games if we have extra money, budget it 1700. Wondering what speaker/sound card would be best and if theres anything else that should be changed. Thanks.
I don't know if your dad makes or produces sound related things, like music, but I don't think he needs a sound card. The sound card is for professionals and audiophiles who want nothing but the best sound.
If he intends to play all games at ultra settings, I think a 7970 would be acceptable. But, if he is looking for good sound, don't buy Bose. While Bose markets themselves as the best, most of their speakers are pseudo-audiophile at best. If you want good sound, look at M-Audio AV40's, Audioengine A2, or Swan MKII's.
very nice build with no mistake for maximum performance!nice graphics card pick as the gigabyte seems to be doing well in gpus!
dont change anything!
only thing i have to say is that you havent put an ssd for faster windows data transferring!pick probably one 128gb and if the budget does not allow change the gpu to the gigabyte 7950 oc edition x3 windforce!
