So I'm sitting in front a computer with the Xonar DG, using the DT-770 80-Ohm cans, listening to the 1812 overture and Britney Spear I Wanta Go.

The DG has no problem powering the DT-770 Pro 80-Ohm cans. listening with volume control at 50%.

So save some money, get the DG.

At full volmue it was not loud enough to hurt my ears, but loud enough that it's not what any normal person would listen at.

I would not think anyone would run the volume at more then 60% for any long period of time.

I'm listening to 1812 Overture at 60% right now, most people would be more likely to be at around 45%-50% volume level.

Modern graphic cards use PCI-Express slots.

The Xonar DG uses the PCI slot, 95% of all motherboard made will have one or more PCI slots.

PCI-E is short for PCI-Express

PCI and PCI-E slots do look a lot like each other,
PCI has been around for longer, 10-15 years?

All PCI slot are the same length and sit 1/4 of an inch closer to the back of the case, compared to the PCI-E

The PCI have a notch in the slot opposite from the back of the case

PCI-E have been around for around 5-7 years?

PCI Express (X16) slots are usually a little longer then a PCI slot.

There are also very short PCI Express slots (X1 or X4)

The PCI-E slots have a notch in them closer to the back of the case.

So cards are not interchangeable.

I think the DX is about as low price you can get for a PCI-Express sound card.

The Xonar DX can drive 80-Ohm headphones just fine.

ok thanks :D. Does the DX require some kind of power cable inside the case or is it just connected to the PCIe slot?
