I was looking around for a new sound card for my HTPC that had a digital output and this new card from Asus is almost as cheap as the no-name stuff. Ever tried getting a driver for a SuperMegaSound 2000 sound card after a few years? It's not something I'd recommend.
It includes a built-in headphone amp as it is really targeted at gamers, but has a low-profile bracket included and the digital output makes it ideal for HTPCs. The sound is leaps and bounds ahead of the onboard Realtek that I used before.
The usual rip off P&P prices from the likes of Scan, Aria, Novatech etc. put the cost of getting this in any reasonable timeframe up to about £35 and I wasn't paying that.
I was happy to see that CCL Comupters have a decent shipping policy though so P&P for this card was only £2.49+VAT - very reasonable and so the total was just £28.80. My card arrived the next day, recorded delivery.
These cards are new to market and seem to be gaining a good reputation, so with the low price they are selling out fast in many places. Stock is limited in many outlets, including CCL, but they do have a few available for immediate despatch.
