Hey. I have an ASRock Z77 Extreme6 motherboard, intel core i5 2500k cpu. I use it mostly for gaming. I am thinking about getting a sound card soon, but I have never had one before, so I have some questions. Her they go: Would a sound card make any difference at all? how much would it cost to hear a difference? Any recommendations around that price? And lastly, if you need more specs, I can gladly provide them.
sound cards are usually a subjective experience, totally dependant on your ears and speakers. If you going to buy a decent sound card (ie not some $30 card) and only have $20 speakers then dont expect any improvement. If you have $400 speakers then yeah, you should hear a better sound quality unless your hearing is as bad as mine.
