One more quick thing any subs you'd recommend?

That's a problem with this one. NHT has a sub woofer that is made to be paired up with the Super Zero 2.0, but it's almost twice as much than the loudspeakers themselves. Another sub woofer that should be fine to use is the Dayton Audio SUB-800, but I'm not sure if it is available in Australia. It might be through Amazon, but I'm not quite frankly positive.

I personally haven't heard of SkyTec. I would post a new thread concerning a possible sub woofer for you. Unfortunately, I'm not as knowledgeable in sub woofers than I am in loudspeakers. My apologies. I know a few good brands to be Dayton Audio, NHT, BIC, and B&W, but I am not that helpful in that matter.

This may help. See the budget subwoofer list at AVS forum, and their budget subwoofer discussion thread to ask questions or to get recommendations.

I will recommend the swan monitors. Any model that fits your budget.

You should look at the Cambridge Soundworks 2.1 Super Computer speakers. After burn in, these speakers sound great.

Best 2.1 system I have heard to date. And I have heard a lot in my compter/gaming career. Including the usual higher end, as

far as computer speakers go, like Swan , Audioengine 5+. Using an Asus Zonar card and foobar.

 

Not very well know 2.1 system, but very sweet sounding speakers. And when I hooked up my iBasso DX100>Woo Audio Wa2 "preamp

out" to them, the sound was astounding! I was in shock that a 2.1 Computer speaker system could sound this good. Even my wife

noticed the change. and asked if I had "upgraded" my system again!

 

Sometimes Cambridge has a refurb deal on them, and you can get them for around 325.00 or so. That's how I got mine.

Asus Xonar and Creative Titanium are the sound card lines to look at. Roughly in their budget ranges, the Asus cards typically get the extra nod for music, Creative for gaming.

Depends on your budget and what is available to you. Even the lowest models are an improvement over most motherboard audio.

 

Serious gamers go for the Creative because of the better gaming audio support. But if your gaming headset is USB such that it acts as it's own sound card, you don't have to worry about that for the headset. If that's not a concern, I'd see which Asus Xonar models fit your budget.

Budget is lets say... $200 - $250 i can get my sound cards from here http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=211 and my headset is the Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 :D so normal 3mm jack with the 6mm adapter thingy, i think it would be maybe 60% gaming and 40%

I didn't see the Creative Titaniums listed. See if you can find this Titanium HD card from an Australian Internet vendor. From looking here, seems like it ought to be available for a reasonable price, as opposed to Creative's Australian online store where they want $299 eek.gif

I had a look at the Titanium HD but iv read that it dies in about a year so im kinda worried about that. what about the ASUS Xonar Essence STX?
