My System Specs

Gotta say it really sucks.. I can get standard delivery from UK to Ireland in 2 -3 days for $10.. granted it's probable that it's much larger distance but it still sucks..

Can get the xonar DX here for cheaper (had to buy from bestbuy) so I'll be ordering that when i get confirmation that he got them..

Again cheers for the input..

Last question... is it possible with the xonar DX (or any soundcard that is sub $100) to separate the channels?
What I'm looking to do is have the 5.1 headset AND a 2.0 speaker system connected at the same time..
have the speakers receiving stereo of everything the headset gets.. or better a totally separate selection (like a separate audio device)..

I don't want to have to go around my desk every time I want to switch them and would rather run the speakers from the new soundcard than the on-board as
I think they are of sufficient quality to see some benefit.

Any ideas?
Can the xonar DX do this.. if not is there another card that can?
Splitter adapters are available for allowing desk top speaker and headphone connection at the same time. You can google to find what's available in your area. I would post a link for you,but every time I try it,it won't post. Good luck!
