i just purchased the G51 speakers from logitect. Plug it in and it works fine and all, but the sound is pretty muddy, even when its in matrix mode. So i'm planning on buying a new sound card, i'm new to this sound card stuff, so i would appreicate any help or tip.. thanks in advaned everyone. My price range would probably be around $50-40 range.
Before you buy a sound card try adjusting your audio settings first, and remember all speakers require break-in. So your speakers may sound awful for a month or two but if you can wait until you got the components optimize, you may not need a sound card.
Some speakers requires longer to break-in than others.
Note that Logitech speakers tend to be muddy and the Creative speakers sounds more crisp than Logitech.
