Thanks for the help
Sound Card or Amp for producing music on ATH m50x headphones?
You graphics card's HDMI audio output will not plug directly into your ATH-M50X headphones.
You can plug the headphones into the motherboard's green jack and use the Realtek audio.
Xonar DG/DGX vs Realtek on-board??
It can be hard so say as each year Realtek gets better and better.
But it's only $18, after mail in rebate, to try the Xonar DG.
