So should you buy a sound card? That's partly how much you care about sound quality particularly in regards to music. It also depends on what listening hardware you have. For those using the analogue outputs, either good headphones or speakers are a requirement to using a dedicated sound card. In any of these cases, both the Xonar DGX and the DSX are fairly inexpensive at $39.57 and $59.24 respectively, but also deliver impressive results for how much they cost. Given how much I enjoyed listening with both these cards, they are both worthy of our Editor's Choice Award.
