Looking for a sound card better than my onboard sound
Jan 27, 2009, 5:06 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
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.

Disclaimer: I hate Creative
I would recommend the ASUS Xonar D1 as a cheap option. 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.
