I would buy this:
but this quote makes me hesitant:
"Performance-conscious gamers should keep in mind, however, that the Catalina does not include a dedicated digital signal processor (DSP), relying instead on the system CPU to convert the audio signal from digital to analog and vice versa. During especially demanding gameplay, and even sometimes while watching DVDs on lower-end PCs, this lack of a dedicated DSP chews up CPU power, which can lead to problems, such as dropped frames and general system-performance drag."
Stupid question time, will this not matter since my speakers are analog, I just want a sound card cuz I have expensive speakers and I don't want sound to suck power from the CPU, I want a good budget soundcard, NOT FROM CREATIVE, will this do the trick for my needs? Counterstrike, DVD's, music, without sucking?
