I built a new PC about 2 years ago and I'm looking to upgrade the sound. I'm currently using the on-board sound on an Asus ROG Strix X470-F. I haven't bought a sound card in about 12 years and the last one I owned was a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic 7.1. I have a basic set of desktop speakers (Logitech S-120) and a set of Senheiser GSP 302 headhpones.

Occasionally I'll get pops and cracks through the speakers and I'm looking for something to enhance the games I play. I don't create or edit music.

I am a good fan of my Schiit Hel I use for gaming. It is nice, in the back the pre-amp output goes to my powered speakers and when you plug in your headphones into the front it switches the audio to the headphone jack. Audio is impressive to me and felt like an upgrade coming from a soundblaster ae-5. hope that helps a little.

That isway out of my price range at $200, I was hoping for something under $100, maybe $120 for the sound card.
