Hi, I was looking in on a new sound card for my Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard to either replace my Recon3D, cause I somehow get the feeling the card not doing the task for me in sum tasks and sometimes my audio blanks out like distorted audio and hissing and i cant hear nothing comming out of my speakers till i restart again.

I would rather be using optical cable since I find its more easy to set up my speakers other than using the audio 5.1 connections.

Aneway to cut it short. On this sound card what drivers should i get the one from the disc or the one on the website <Since I seen people having some issues with their Xonar Phoebus but aint sure if its reflecting the RoG one>

and of course I hear this one has optical adapter on it. I been tryin to look on the net on a close pic of it just to make sure it does have the connection i need.

Cause i dont wanna waste my money and I have to use my audio connections where my connection for 5.1 is not that long enough to reach. (thats why i also wanna use optical for)

Aneway sorry for making it sound so werid at the start of the thread.

From my knowledge Driver is the same one.
Asus are working on new drivers.
