I am considering a new sound card to go with my new HD 555s. I've narrowed my choices to both the Auzentech Bravura and the Auzentech Forte. I will use these 70/30 music to gaming. I am preferring the Forte, but after reading several user reviews, there seems to be a driver/EMI issue with popping and static in the outputs.
why dont you go for the xonar ST -STX cards? i hear that there rock the crap out of any machine...plus i seen one with a console hooked up to studio monitors, i was really pleased with my pals setup after all i suggested to get the console/mixer to complement his Alesis monitors.
