My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H revision 2.0. Will these sound cards work on my MB? Would I notice a difference in sound qualify if I'm using sound through http://steelseries.com/products/audio/steelseries-siberia-v2 ?

  1. i would go with the cheaper one if your not planning on doing any video or sound editing. is there no integrated sound on your Motherboard?

    I don't like the DSX that much; reviews actually preferred the slighter cheaper DGX over the DSX, and it probably doesn't justify the extra price (all of $10 or so).

    The DX is the superior card though, as the jump in quality from the DGX/DSX to the DX is significant.

    Regardless, you should hear a significant increase in audio quality using any of the above mentioned cards with any decent headset.
