Asus STX and Windows 8 happy together?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm about to bite the bullet on a new PC and debating Win8 or Win7/64. I'll probably move my STX from the old box but checking with other users experience. Right now OS is Win7/64 and I'm using the S/PDIF and RCA outs. Happy with the sound for the money invested.As much as I'd like to splurge on a new DAC cost is a concern and the STX to the Schiit Vali sounds pretty darn good.My STX is a few years old now if that matters.

I am using the STX with Windows 8 without issue.  Getting it to work initially was a bear, but I found that was due to an incredibly out-of-date BIOS.  I have not had any problems related to OS with the STX.

Thank you. Good to know. It is tough to resist going for something new with all the great equipment talk around the site (and I still may). This has been a good card for me over the years and recently paired with the Schiit Vali is part of a satisfying combo. I may have to stick with it if I overspend my PC budget. However, having it actually work is a prerequisite!
