    Blast my Sound Card

    Hi All,

    I've been running a Maximus V Extreme for a while now. Nothing real special, the most I play on it is Steam Train Simulator 2014. I'm usually doing electronic components research and development which includes surfing the web. yeah, I know, boring...

    Up until now, I've been listening to any music on a small, 2 speaker with a bass, setup, plugged into the motherboard. Every once in awhile I'd like to rock the house but, it's not happening with this system! So, here comes the question.

    Can anyone suggest a good sound card to plug into this board?

    Thanks, that's all for me...

    Soundblaster Z is a good card, and you can find it on sale sometimes for around $80.

    No matter what sound card you have, if you haven't got a good set of powered speakers or a stereo, you'll never get them windows shacking.

    Thanks Nackers, the small system I have is powered. Wouldn't do it any other way. Just looking for a sound card that I can plug some real speakers into.
