okay i just got the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi USB. I thought it would be cool to have a sound card on your desk that is easily accessible...untill i found out after i bought it, there is horrible sound delay. i followed what support told me and still nothing. so untill i know something that will work, and won't cause my system to crash i am giving up.

So these are two that i am thinking about, i wouldnt want to spend to much more than 50ish

how do you think recording will be? i am not looking for the best recording card just one that i know will sound okay and now give me much lag. the problem i had with the xfi usb is what i heard when i was recording was delayed to what was being recorded so much in fact notes would make it sound like there is subdivisions and such in the beat.

i just want to make sure i do my research and not have to deal with sending crap back and getting new products... again.

ASUS Supports higher sample rate and supports DTS decoding. We have a winner.

I also think Creative's stuff is over-rated most times.

ya, i am just worried about recording, i dont play games much as my computers graphic card isnt top notch, but i play trumpet and guitar and i just dont want as much lag from recording with a mic that i had with the creative usb. and it seams like creatives drivers and programs take a big toll out of your system.

You'll want to get a low-latency input device for that anyways. Sound cards in this echelon aren't really designed for professional recording. Not that they're bad, just not intended for that. M-Audio sells some good low-latency devices for this purpose. Check them out. :)
