Need help with selecting an audio card/unit.
Hello, did not know where to post this question. I am currently putting a list together for a whole PC system build (my first build). I would like some advise on audio for my PC. My family and I (wife and two teenage boys) love to listen to digital music and at a high volume. I want to figure out what I need to get to have a qualtiy home stereo setup. Do I go with just the onboard sound or should I invest in a card or external unit? Do I need to get an amp? What would a good setup be? I have read that external units allow a little better sound quality since they are outside the PC away from all the other electronics. One of my boys may like to try a little mixing of music also. Look forward to your inputs. Thanks.
