I bought a new mobod from gigabyte. GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Audio ChipsetRealtek ALC889Audio Channels8 ChannelsI have a sound card already from HT Omega Claro 7.1 I venture to guess that the Omega is a better route than the onboard? Anyone care to comment?
More aboutsound card
Install the soundcard. You can do a comparative test before you install it though. But it will be pretty clear once you install it = much better. I have 2 mobos with ALC889 both now have cards in them.
If you have the sound card already then you should use it as it will be better than the onboard chip that comes with the motherboard. There is no comparison the Clario is going to give better sound and more options.
Yeah, the origional Claro is still better then onboard.
