Hi,

Am planning to upgrade my sound card from the stock realtek card.

Just wanted to find out if

ASUS Xonar Essence STX

will be too much of an overkill for my current 2.1 Creative speakers.

Many thanks!

There should be less distortion on higher volumes, overall quality will improve and it might even be louder.

Thanks for your reply. I guess my main concern would be will the difference in sound quality be significant enough to justify the price of the sound card as I am not using a set of 7.1.

If not. Any other cards to recommend?
