This review is from: ASUS Xonar DG 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
Pros: Better than the built-in audio on the older intel motherboard (2008 model) I installed it on. Price is good for what you get. Would say its the best sound card in its price range. Never had any issues with drivers either.
Cons: Probably don't need this card unless you are hearing noise on your onboard sound, otherwise it doesn't seem like a huge upgrade. Missing options and sound quality that more expensive cards have.
Other Thoughts: Only used for 5.1 audio system output.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of space in this case to build with. No need to cram. Great modern look. Fit my large Radeon 6990 card (approx 12" length) and didn't have to remove hard drive chassis to do so. No stupid LED lights or windows. Plenty of room and options for cooling fans.
Cons: It's rather large for a computer case, but I had a good idea that it was going to be a big case. Silent case, but not quite as silent as I hoped it would be.
Other Thoughts: Bought this refurbished and it arrived in original retail packaging. Came with all original documentation and accessories. Case looked brand new. If it weren't for the new tape across the box lid, I wouldn't have been able to tell this was a refurb. If you're debating on getting the refurb, don't hesitate. You'll be glad you saved a few extra bucks.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Used for a budget build and paired with an A4 cpu with discrete graphics. Has held up just fine since building it almost a year ago. Good price for a board that has both sata 6gb and usb 3.0
Other Thoughts: Budget friendly, especially when paired with an AMD APU.READ FULL REVIEW
