Buying any electronic product is quit hard for people who really concern about their purchase. I'm kind of person who purchases any electronic items with deep review so that i can get a worthy buy. I've a gaming setup with no external sound card & have an old cheap creative 4.1 speaker(M4500). My 5 yrs old speaker gave me a fair output sound. So, my question : (1).Looking for a good surround 5.1 speakers for gaming, music, movie. i hear music,movies,games with max volume to get a good surround sound experience. Budget $300-350 , love to hear thumping or punchy bass (Kinda Bass lover with high volume). (2). Within such budget, a good PCI-E sound card with a decent 5.1 speaker. These are my option's. Another thing i have a Maximus VII Ranger motherboard which have Onboard sound feature. Thank you.
