I'm buying a new computer, and am also wavering whether to buy a dedicated sound card or not. I have these Phillips MMS171 2.1 speakers and will have this Asus P8P67-M motherboard. With these two pieces of hardware, am I even going to hear any difference if I buy the Sound Blaster rather than just stick with the plain old onboard sound card?
Yeah, I guess that would be the most sensible option, the only "problem" is someone else is building the system for me, as I just don't know how to do it myself. Therefore I was hoping to make that decision prior to getting that done.
Yeah, I guess, although I always seem to just get used to the sound, whatever it is. I listen to music all the time, though, so that's why I was thinking of maybe actually trying to get used to a better quality of sound, if that makes sense.
And as for adding a sound card, I don't know, I've never done it before, and am a bit apprehensive of my skills. I guess I could do it, but then, since I live in Canada, shipping costs are going to amount to a third of the final price.
