    Seems alright I guess, has some l33t xram on it too lol Will definitely be better than onboard, I've heard the Auzentech's are a hell of a lot better though for your gaming cards.

    If you can spend a little more, an Asus Xonar D2X. If you can spend a lot more, an Asus HDAV1.3 Deluxe.

    If that's as high as you can go, the Titanium will do just fine tho.

    Bummer that buying online is not an option tho, as those Auzentech cards are about the best value for the money.

    Like Sabre said, it has a breakout connector for your 3.5 jacks. They are nice and clearly labled too. It also has a built in headphone amp, to drive high quality cans if you have them.

    Other than that, it's just built with better components all the way around than the Creative built cards.

    im looking for a new subwoofer to replace my Xplod. something under 400 and not too hard to get. i have seen the rockford fosgate P3 and looks alright for the price just wondering if there is anything else around 500W rms?

    Rockford would be the way to go, other wise try Vifa subs, they may fit the bill and can be sourced through Jaycar :) I highly dislike Sony, Alpine, Teac, and other "Red Dot" brand subs myself, but that's just my opinion.

    I use a Sony 5.1 DD/DTS reciever with the original speakers/active sub that came with it (I dont remember the model number and cant look because Im at work lol).

    Its getting fairly old now (Ive had it 6 years at least), but it still sounds great for gaming and movies (XBOX360, PS3 & SKY+ HD).

    Im actually on the look out for a new 5.1/7.1 setup (for my living room) with HDMI inputs/output. So if anyone has any ideas please let me know (UK stores only) :D

    if you dont belive in overkill this is for you http://www.sony.com.au/product/ht-ddw8500 :D
    im trying to save up for it but the 7.2 version not sure where u can get it in the UK tho.

    you can also get a custom hi-fi system, like buy the amp, speakers and sub all separate but i cant help u on that, not sure how good things are.

    Your 301x is a 300watt amp *900 peak yea right, maybe at 19v @ 1khz for .1ms*

    The AV-711 is 40 watts per channel.

    TBH- Peak isn't valid in the least and even RMS is a real crappy way to rate power output, to get a real idea you need a series of graphs.

    Currently I'm running a Yamaha M-60 main, M-30 effects, C-60 pre, DSP-100U DSP, JBL SVA-1600 mains, JBL HLS 620 and JBL HLS 610 effects, 2 Polk PSW110 10" subs, and a JBL PSW-1200 12" sub.
