Just got mine today & I must say very impressed with it. I have tried many sound cards in the past I never really noticed that much of a difference. Until now, this is really well made & the sound is beyond what I expected. It put a big smile on my face & was worth the price. I will be getting another one for my son's PC. Super easy & quick to install and setup. This completed the addition to the new speakers I also just got 2 weeks ago. THX certified just got better baby. My hat off to EVGA...always been a fan & not once disappointed.
