Default Re: Sound Card/Graphics Card/Mobo Mumbo Jumbo.

what's the difference in sound quality with PCIe and PCI sound cards?

I am looking at
Creative Fatal1ty (PCIe)
Creative X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Edition (PCI)
Asus Xonar D1 7.1 (PCI)
AuzenTech X-PLOSION Cinema 7.1 Sound Card DTS Connect Dolby Digital Live Sound Card PCI 32BIT


or any recommendations (mostly looking for PCI version so I don't have to mess with bios for my gfx SLI to work)?
budget: <$200 bucks, would like it lower, but shrugs - you get what you pay for
- needs 7.1, and depth recognition (basically if the enemy is behind me, I hear him behind me) and etc...
Don't need extreme features really lol, just enough to put me in the game.

Asus Xonar D1 definitely. there is not a diff in sound quality, but pci-e x1 is more future proof.


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D
