Re: sound card suggestions for gaming pc?
I have a Creative X-Fi xTreme Gamer Edition sound card, and I will agree that the drivers are a pain to work with sometimes, but once I got everything sorted out, it's been perfect for me.
Even though I do like my sound card, and it does give me VERY nice 5.1 surround sound, I would actually recommend the cards Aastii mentioned, simply because, you guessed it, better driver support.
