Looking for a sound card better than my onboard sound Tags: Sound Cards Headsets Components Product Last response: January 27, 2009 7:45 PM in Components Share billin30 January 27, 2009 5:06:15 PM I want to get a cheap but decent sound card that is better than the onboard sound of my XFX 680i LT mobo. I was looking that Creative card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Since it is rather old, I dont know if its going to be a huge improvement. Not set on that, just an example and am open to all suggestions. I am really just looking for a good gaming card for sound and mic, since my onboard is terrible with the mic. I play COD4 and other FPS's. I nice headset to go with it would be great too if anyone has any ideas. Would like to keep a headset + sound card around 100 bucks.

Other options include the ASUS Xonar D2/D2x and the Razer Barracuda. Creative simply has too many driver issues for me to recommend them, period. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
