Astro A40 system, which sound card?
Jun 3, 2011, 7:42 PM
So, I've had my my Astro A40's (MixAmp as well) for about a year and a half now, and now I have finally built a gaming rig! However, I am bummed out because my onboard audio doesn't support DDL.
My question is this. Asus Xonar Essence STX or HT Omega Striker?
It is important that I retain the ability to use the mic. Would I be able to do this with either sound card?
Also, I mostly game and watch some Blu-Rays. I hardly ever listen to music on my rig.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I am, of course open to suggestions as well!
