What Sound Card?
hey i just built my new rig a few months ago and i opted out of getting a sound card since figured my integrated sound would suffice...well either it crapped out or i started to realize how bad it sucks i really don't know which. Anyways i'm gonna get a soundcard around X-mas time and i was hoping you guys could help me out here cuz i'm clueless as to what to go for. here's an idea on my pickiness/uses/whatever...haha
1. i'm a very avid music listener and gamer
2. i'm also in college AKA poor (haha) so i'm looking in the <$40 range
3. I want a mic input in my card and will use it for recording a crappy demo for myself and my band (i'm kinda the techie in my rock band.)
*for the above statement know that I don't expect a $40 card to get me any ligit recordings anyways, it's mostly just so we have something to go off of and to practice with while we're at college cuz we don't all go to school together.*
Thanks guys, Any suggestions are welcome.
