Hey there!

I was wondering, if I would benefit from a soundcard. I'm currently just using the onboard audio on my Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H (VIA VT2021 codec).
Headset I use for gaming: Steelseries Siberia V2 (non-USB) (
Speakers I use for music listening (might upgrade soon, please come with some suggestions): Edifier M3300 (
If I would benefit from a soundcard, then please list some different cards in different price ranges.



The rest of my specs are just beneath.

Well, if you could just list some cards in different price ranges, that would be great.

Hah with that budget, you can pretty much buy the best sound card. You will get better sound, but most people don't think its worth it to get a dedicated card as integrated sound cards are pretty good nowadays.

I said "Max. 100-150 euros". I would rather buy something around 50 euro.
