  1. Keep in mind it doesn't have to be a pc related manufacteror, I think some of the professional audio companies make much more quality gear then people like Creative and Asus.

    I've dabbled in sound editing on my pc, and I've had nice reference monitors, M-Audio interfaces/headphone amps. They are all dedicated components and work just as well if not better than those 2 boxes you listed.
  2. The Creative Sound Blaster X is a decent sound card.
