First post here. And as you can see from my title, i'm been trying to figure out what to do. So here is my situation.
- I need a gaming headset.
- I am using my onboard Realtek ALC892 codec.
- I went for the Sennheiser PC320 and not the PC360 because of my budget.
- Now I am thinking about getting the Asus Xonar DGX because I feel like the volume of my headset is to low and that i'm not getting the full potential of a Sennheiser headset.
My question is: "Am I right?" will the Xonar improve the overall performance of my PC320?
I know that an dedicated soundcard will always be better than a onboard. Every audiophile would respond with 'duh' to that question.
I should also mention that I am willing to upgrade my headset in the future with maybe the PC360.
Geez... It started with 'just looking for a gaming headset' and it turned into having to test 5 different headsets and headphones and not being very happy with them. I figured out that I might be an audiophile.
Anyways! I hope you guys can help me! Glad to be part of this forum and I hope to be of any use in the near future.
