I want to ask for external soundcard. External one, because my PCIe slot is covered by graphic card cooling, and if i would mount sound card into PCI slot, it would be 5mm-1cm next to the graphic card cooling, so it could hardly higher temperatuers. My current headphones are SuperLux 668B, and speakers are crappy Logitech z323. I would use it mostly for gaming, music is still important, but not as much (About 65 and 35%). It isn't needed, but it would be nice if that soundcard would be OS X compatibile.
Atm. i'm thinking which one is better: Maya U5 or Xonar U3. I don't want much more expensive ones than Maya U5.
