This review is from: ASUS Xonar DG 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
Pros: Good performer
Much lower static noise coming from it than onboard
Capable of VERY HIGH volumes which is convenient
Cons: Drivers need to be updated for Win 7. When I exit from some games it loops a glitching sound and I need to disable and enable it back to fix it (or restart the PC)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is a very good card for the price (I bought it when it was around 175 two months ago) and it will play most of your games at 1080p with at least high settings with minimum 2-4x AA. 1GB of memory it is really enough since most games don't perform any better with the extra GB.
Cons: It wasn't the smoothest experience when I first installed it but that is not the card's fault. AMD drivers were acting dumb at start but a couple of weeks after it started to work as it should and now 2 month in it is a pleasure having this card.
My only grip would be that it is supposed to OC like a beast but my card doesn't really like to do so. 50Mhz more on the memory and it gives me artifacts
Other Thoughts: It can basically play whatever you throw at it with generous framerates and a big positive point is the dual fan configuration which keeps it quiet and on 65 degrees when stress tested. It should OC well (except my card doesn't seem to like it) and get close to 7870 performance, so a good buy overallREAD FULL REVIEW
