Hmm based on what i read out, the Essence STX is made for stereo/headphone uses (i use 99% headphones), so i am gonna get the Essence STX
I would be very interested if you could let us know how you get on. If it is not to much trouble to compare the STX with onboard for gaming. It is just that I have been thinking of getting that same soundcard myself. I mostly game though and don't really listen to music on my PC.
