Sound card!

Hey guys. And hey btw, just registered, looks like a great place!

I'm choosing a soundcard for my computer and would like to hear which one you think I should choose. I have a good budget so don't worry about the price!

Thanks.

Hey and welcome here!

Well, if price isn't a problem then I would go for a x-fi titanium fatality card.
You also have some good asus cards, but they are not really my taste, so yeah.
Only my opinion!

Hmm ok. Yes, I've had an x-fi card in the past and it was good to me, so I think I will choose that, unless someone has another opinion! Thanks for fast answer!

Hi and welcome.

Depents on what you want to use it for.
If it is mostly for gaming the Creative X-Fi is a good choice.
If it's more for music and budget is no problem I would go for the Asus Xonar Essence STX (2 channel) or ST Deluxe (7.1 channel)

Here's a review of the ST Deluxe: ASUS Xonar Essence ST DeLuxe review
