so the sound quality is good for games then, ive been told that because it doesnt have the effects of the creative card it can sound rather bad in some games

this one is the cheaper
and dont compare built in sound cards quality to 3d recon


BS. The Recon3D line is horrid.

Anyways, all soundcards use very cheap mic input ports, because there isn't any reason to bother with a HQ ADC as the audio is going to be horribly compressed anyways.

Farther, if you have a PC350, you need a soundcard with a headphone amp to properly drive it.
