    Sound Card Pick

    Hi,

    I am on the lookout to get a sound card. So far I have been using the MOBO (ASUS ROG Strix X299-E Gaming) and the Graphics Card (ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Strix Gaming, 11 GB VRAM) built-in ones. Full config is in the profile. And here is my situation:

    It is very comfortable for me to plug my DT 770 Pro headphones into a VG248qe that receives sound via DisplayPort, which is why I use Graphics Card's sound.

    Now, as I see consideration points, they would be:

    - Is it possible to reroute the sound card's output via the graphics card into the DP? If not, I prefer to get sound through a 2 m extension wire (analog, 3.5 mm). Anything I should be aware of in that latter option? Any recommendations?
    - Is there a sound card that works well both under Windows 10 1903 and Ubuntu 16.04? If not, let's focus on Windows and gaming.
    - Let's focus on what integrates best with the MOBO and has great driver support.

    Let the race begin. Thanks!
