I'd have to say this is the best sound card I've ever owned. However if you have never had a card that ships with so much software you might get overwhelmed as far as what is used for what. I have mine paired up with Logitech Z5500 speakers which are digital but setting the soundcard up and getting the proper cables to take full advantage can be confusing for beginers.

I bought this sound card as it was being offered at a great price. The card is wonderful, it really brings all audio through your PC to life.
