Would I benefit from a soundcard? Tags: Sound Cards Components Last response: February 18, 2013 1:08 AM in Components Share casparolesen February 16, 2013 6:13:03 PM 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) (http://steelseries.com/products/audio/steelseries-siber...). Speakers I use for music listening (might upgrade soon, please come with some suggestions): Edifier M3300 (http://www.edifier.com/eng2005/product/s0050_01.htm). If I would benefit from a soundcard, then please list some different cards in different price ranges. Thanks! /Caspar The rest of my specs are just beneath.
