I like listening to music and was thinking of updating my soundcard, but I haven't been keeping up with computer components for the past few years. What is a good recommendation for a soundcard upgrade? My current soundcard is an Audigy 2 ZS and preferably want to spend less than $100. For the most part, I listen with my Promedia 5.1 Ultras and occassionaly with Sennheiser HD558s as headphones. Thanks!
Yep. Even with a crazy speaker system like that, you won't notice any difference. Sound cards have not improved recently, to my knowledge. You can only deliver a given sound signal so accurately. You certainly don't need to upgrade one like you would a graphics card - as often as possible, that is.
