I am on a budget for building a computer, and had extra cash. im thinking about buying a sound card, either the Asus Xonar DG or the Diamond XtremeSound PCI 7.1. which of these are better, and is there a big difference from the onboard soundcard? Are there any other soundcards under 40 dollars that are better. I mainly used headphones (Audio Technica ath m50) but i use a 2.1 speaker system sometimes. My main purpose is for music. i listen to Hip hop (rap) and EDM (House, electro, dubstep) Thank you.
