I was looking at different things for my computer to get with some birthday/saved money. I have already decided that I want to spend it on a Klipsch Promedia 2.1 Speaker System . The question is whether I need a different soundcard. I currently have a generic onboard sound card,realtek high def, but I was wondering if I needed the additional card or not. If I do need one, what are some ideas for them. I was thinking HT | Omega Striker . Thanks for the help guys!

The speakers themselves do not need a dedicated sound card.. However, i've always advocated the need for a dedicated audio card for music enthusiasts.. The major advantage is cleaner audio.. The HT Omega Striker is a good card for the money..

right i phrased that incorrectly. I meant to say do you reccomend a diff sound card and i guess the answer is yes. I wasn't going to go with creative because their reviews are good and terrible.

alright, thanks for your help. I was afraid that it wouldnt sound great with onboard. Any other suggestions other than omega striker?

Not many options at that price.. However, i do recommend you to first listen to your speakers using the onboard audio.. The sound may be satisfying enough for you to consider getting a dedicated audio card as a waste of money..
