Im looking to get a new sound card for about $100 of less. Ive been looking at the Asus Xonar and HT Omega Striker. I do not know much about sound cards so Im looking for a little help. My current card which is a auzentech brand I believe because it uses the C-Media software does not work well on my computer. I am running windows 7 and the software for that sound card crashes whenever i try to open it, and recently it raises the pitch of any sound on my computer so I hear little girls and mice singing, it fixes it self when i restart the computer, but still a pain in the a**. It did only cost me $20, so i got what i paid for i guess. I mainly watch movies and listen to music on my computer, running one speaker wire to my sony sterio input, which powers 4 speakers and one sub. I play games occastionally if it makes any difference in which card I should get. Thanks for any help!
