Just bought Astro A40 2013 Edition headset. Using it with PC and 360. Tags: Sound Cards Astro Audio Components sktittles November 19, 2012 12:54:23 AM So i just bought the Astro A40 2013 edition with the pro mixamp. I was wondering If i can connect my Astro A40's to my computer and use optical audio without getting a sound card? If not, what sound card would you guys recommend? I've been looking at these: Creative Sound blaster recon 3d Fatalty: http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Blaster-Recon3D-Fatal1ty... Asus Xonar DGX: http://www.amazon.com/Xonar-DGX-PCI-E-GX2-5-Engine/dp/B... I dont wanna get a sound card unless it will give me better audio, and is really required for optical audio in my case. My budget would be 100-120$ including Shipping. My motherboard is an Asus P8z77-v pro. More about : bought astro a40 2013 edition headset 360 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
