Hello, this is my first time on these forums and I would like some help.
I am currently looking for a new soundcard to go with my computer. I have stumbled apon a few cheap ones. I am currently using an onboard soundcard on my ASUS P7P55D PRO.
These are the sound cards:
ASUS Xonar DG: ($35 CAN new) - I have heard great things about this card. Is it comparable to the Bravura and the Forte?
Auzentech X-fi Bravura: ($35 CAN new) - Is this more reliable than the Forte and is it better than the DG?
Auzentech X-fi Forte: ($45 CAN new or $30 second hand) - Many people have reported that this card is very unreliable and will break down quickly (static, etc). I also heard that there is a new model that prevents this?
I dont know too much about them and I would appreciate some help. I always play games and barley listen to music or watch movies. It is like 95% gaming and 5% other. I currently have Steelseries Siberia v2 Headset and I am most likely going to upgrade to the popular Audio Technika ATH-AD700 Headphones. I mostly play FPS games like BF3, COD, Counter Strike Global Offensive and other competitive FPS games. Which one of these sound cards will give me an edge in audio by me able to hear footsteps, etc. and all those little things.
I would greatly appreciate your opinions on these cards and help me out.
