Hi, I have a Logitech Z-5500 and a SteelSeries Siberia V2 and I am looking for the best sound card or setup for both of them. I use the Z-5500 for music and movies and the headphones for gaming. From all the reviews I have read (a lot) the Asus Xonar STX is the best for music and the Auzen Forte is the best for gaming. The problem is that most reviews for those cards are for headphones and that's because those cards are made for headphones. My question is, which one of those OR other should I get to make it work perfectly with both my headphones and speakers? And what would be the pros and cos for each one?
I am pretty sure I'm not the only one that has this problem. I just cant find a solution : / I have found these forums very good, so if someone can help me with this or direct me to the right site/forum please tell me.
If there is any other detail I should write down please let me know. I am using onboard at the moment, my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-EX58-DS4.
Asus Xonar Essence STX
X-Fi Forte 7.1
SteelSeries Siberia V2
I have read some good things about the HT Omega Claro plus +, but there are not enough reviews that can compare it to the STX or Forte to see which one is better. Same with the Strike and Halo. If someone knows anything about this cards which I believe are very close to the STX and Forte in quality let me know too.
