Hey all. I don't know anything about audio, so my apologizes if this all sounds very stupid which it could. I have an Asus G74sx running Win7. Can't find much about my soundcard in Device manage. It says online that I should have EAX Advanced HD 5.0 but all I get in the Device manage is "Realtek High definition audio" and like 5 "Nvidia High definition audio". So not sure what soundcard I have Anyway I've had the Planetronics Gamecom 777. The plastic is starting to break and I want a new headset and I think I've decided on the Razer Tiamat 2.2 (not sure if its out? I can't find it anywhere online instock except for the actual razer site.) So, to my understanding it won't work will with my laptop if I don't get an outboard soundcard. Lurking online I've found This: http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Soundblaster-Surround-Sy... and this: http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Soundblaster-Audio-Syste... not sure which would work well/best to run a good headset. Basically how can I get a good headset (something like the tiamat 2.2, etc.) on my Asus G74sx? Really sorry if this all sounds very stupid, I'm very confused and don't know much about audio. Thanks
EDIT: Also, very sorry if this is in the wrong section.
Try the tiamats with what you have. Your system should be bright enough to switch to 2channel mode when you plug in a headset.If not, set it manually.
Alright, Thanks. How would I set it manually? Also, would either of those work on my pc? What about if I get a 5.1/7.1 surround sound headset? I have a 5.1 usb plugin (I think) that came with my Gamecom 777 I think. Thank you!
