    Default Looking for sound card with a dedicated headphone jack

    I'm doing a new build this fall, and I'm probably going to get a new sound card as well, as I'm tired of not being able to have my headphones plugged directly into my Sound Blaster X-Fi due to my speakers taking the spot, and it doesn't have a front panel connector.

    Basically, I want a sound card that I can still plug in all my 5.1 speakers, plus my headset directly into the sound card. The new Sound Blaster Recon3D has this feature, but I'm on a bit of a budget this time around. I've been looking at some ASUS sound cards (PCI-E), and the picture are too blurry to make out if there is a dedicated port or not. Some of them say "Dedicated Headphone Amp", but I have no clue if that means a dedicated jack, or just something that helps the audio when it detects a headset is plugged in.


    Yes, I remember the big debate we had last year about on board audio vs dedicated audio. Please don't bring that up again.

    The only cards i see with a headphone jack in your price range would be the USB sound cards.

    Pretty much any high end motherboard that has built in sound these days is about as good as any addon card you can get.
