Need some input

I'm thinking about getting the Turtle Beach Santa Cruz for my new comp. I'm not to terribly interested in any Sound Blaster card because i haven't had the best experience w/ them. Also, i've heard there are other sound cards w/ the santa cruz sound chip: are these any better than the one made by Turtle Beach? Thanks

  1. The Hercules Game Theater XP uses the same chip, but has more features on the external rack.

  2. yeah, i would narrow it down to either the Turtle beach or the GTXP, get the Game Theater if you want an external rack with LOADS of Features, or get the turtle for great sound without an external rack!

  3. so does the gtxp have a lower sound quality than the santa cruz?

  4. No, they use the same chip and they sound virtually the same.

  5. thanks for the info on the gtxp. I don't really know if i should buy it because i don't really need all the extra cords and stuff. Is it really worth all that fancy stuff?

  6. Well, if you're not going to be plugging in a fancy sound system to your computer then the Santa Cruz is fine.
