I just purchased a new home theatre system (Yamaha RX-V673 receiver, Klipsch RF-82's and Klipsch RC62) as well as purchased a new computer which I had built (Asus Z77 Deluxe, I7-3770k, GeForce GTX690) and am looking for a sound card to best suit my needs.

I would need it for Gaming, Music as well as movies. Looking for a all in one card. I'm pretty new to audio so any info would help greatly.

Thanks :)

You don't need a sound card. The motherboard already has everything on board.
Although IMHO, I would consider the quality of asus: "ho hum."
you just need some cables to hook it up...

Thanks for the response. I asked around and wanted to upgrade the onboard sound to a sound card and was told it does make quite a difference so I ended up going out and buying Creative Sound Blaster Z.

I installed the card and the drivers, but having troubles getting the sound to come through my receiver.
