Hi everyone,

I just got a Razer Tiamat 7.1, but i heard that this headset need a dedicated sound card (for 7.1 of course). But my motherboard is the G1 Sniper M3 which has the Sound Blaster recon3Di on it.

So do i really need another 7.1 sound card? is the Sound Blaster Recon3Di on my mobo is good for my Tiamat 7.1? And if so, is it good as much as getting a dedicated sound card?

Thanks.

Sorry, but surround sound headsets/headphones are a joke. That said, the Razer Tiamat 7.1 has terrible audio quality. Adding a sound card won't fix that. If the Tiamat had good audio quality, then it may be worth buying a sound card. You can still buy a sound card and get a good speaker system instead of the headset.

I think you would be OK with the motherboards audio out as long as it supports 7.1 audio out you would have all of the audio ports you would need. In fact the setup guide on there own web site has all of the 3.5 jacts going right into the built in sound card so you will have no problem at all.

And even if you sound card only supports 5.1 the headset will still work just fine. You would set the sound card to 5.1 mode and plug in the correct colored jacks.

Oh, thanks man, because of you i checked my system, turn out my built-in sound card does support 5.1 surround, i'll settle with this, at least for a while.

Well, the best choice would be Asus Xonar Phoebus....
