I have an MSI 870A-G54 mobo which uses Realtek® ALC892 w/ win 7. I've connected my creative fatal1ty gaming headset to that so I was wondering for any of those that have the headset and use the default Realtek HD audio manager, what are your equalizer settings?
Also, should I just chip in a $50 for a sound card or does the potential of the headset maximize at motherboard's audio chipsets?
you will not get audiophile grade sound out of a $35 headset so adjust your equilizer to your liking as it will not happen automatically. Adding in a $50 soundcard wont change the picture much becuase you're still not at audiophile grade components.
