  1. I have on-board right now and I decided to get a sound cad since I think im missing out playing games on a on-board sound card.


    I have P5E deluxe Mobo and only 570gtx so I have free slots.


    I was thinking about getting this sound card
    Amazon.com: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Internal Sound Card with THX SB1270: Electronics Amazon.com: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Internal Sound Card with THX SB1270: Electronics

    but i am open to other suggestions since I have been reading creative has terrible drivers and customer support. I am primarily a gamer and use a headset.

    I also would like to know what is a great head set for gaming these days I have a budget of around 120$ for a headset. Thx

    I doubt you're missing out much.
    I've also heard that Creative is not being nice with their drivers.

    IMO Asus Xonar Essence STX.

    I don't have one, sound cards are not worth the money IMO.
