Could any of you recommend a PCI sound card for around £40 that's compatible with the motherboard listed above?

Thanks :)

  1. Realtek® ALC 892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC
    - Supports : Jack-detection, Multi-streaming, Front Panel Jack-retasking
    Audio Feature :
    - Absolute Pitch 192kHz/ 24-bit True BD Lossless Sound
    - Blu-ray audio layer Content Protection
    - ASUS Noise Filter
    - Optical S/PDIF out port(s) at back panel

    The board already has great audio.
  2. 1 x PCI < It will fit in the PCI slot on the board
  3. Basically I'm making some let's play YT vids and I have a Roccat Kave 5.1 SS headset. I can't get any volume that's acceptable on the mic unless it's at 30 decibels, but that's just feedback heaven.

    I used to use the same mic as Tobuscus the Yt'er but still I got feedback at 30 decicels.

    I'll list what I've already tried..

    - Turning the Decibels (Making mic recording output louder but creates unnecessary feedback)
    - Recording externally in a different software like Audacity and trying to turn it up (Annoying feedback because of decibels)
    - Checked for driver updates etc.
    - Same difference in both stereo/5.1 headsets.
    - CLEAN install of windows!

    The only solution I can think of is a sound card. But how will that guarantee it will work?

    Thanks.

    EDIT: And on my sound mixer my headphones are controlled by the overall speakers. Even when I turn the sound down via my head set the sound on the system follows which shouldn't happen.
  4. Even on Skype. my friends tell me I'm really quite and if I turn mic boost to 30 decibels it fixes it but gives insane unbearable feedback.

    I take it you installed your headset drivers and software already? There are a ton of settings in my headset software and had to turn my mic volume full in there as people were saying the same thing (too quiet) But i never experienced any feedback from doing this.

    I've researched it extensively and my headset, doesn't actually have any drivers.
