Im considering getting a sound card for my pc, Ive been looking at the Asus Xonar DGX 5.1, mainly because its the one which has came up in most searches, and its relatively cheap!
At the minute, for gaming the sound is really messed up, ive been using the front audio jack (its pretty much backwards, sounds that should come from the right are coming from the left). However when I plug it into the jack at the back of the pc, it seems to work fine.
Ive been using the front jack because i also use the headphones as portables, so its a major hassle moving everything to get access to the ports on the back of the pc. The front audio jack also produces a noise, like a faint bleep every time i move the mouse onscreen, weird :S
I have just ordered AKG 550's for listening to music, would these double up and do me for gaming also? If not, I have been looking at the Corsair vengeance 1500 to stay connected to the pc as a standalone gaming headset.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)
