Nice card, but most likely unnecessary... 10/26/2013
Ok, so Im giving this card 4 stars cause it works great at what it does- amping high end headphones (+$220) or 2.1 speakers.
Needs not only a free PCI-E x1 slot, but also a free 4-pin molex adapter. Not a huge problem, just creates extra cabling to your mobo area (If you have a window like I do, its not as tidy looking).
So I bought this with a pair of AKG K701's for use with BF4 and other FPS. It works great in that regard, as well as making music sound awesome. That said, thats all it does. Its basically an amp and encoder for high-end headphones or decent 2.1 speakers. THATS IT! If you dont have that very specific requirement, this card is NOT FOR YOU. It doesnt have connections for 5.1 or 7.1 speakers. Heck, it doesnt even have a space for regular 3.5mm headphone jacks, you would need an adapter.
