Which is the "best" is a "matter of opinion" question.

The big problem is a really good speaker setup can often make lesser cards sound better & poor speaker setup can make a really good card sound crummy.

That complicates the issue as not everybody is going to have the same speakers.

Another thing that can affect sound quality [unless you're using headphones] is the acoustics of the room you're in & actual placement of the speakers.

[Before computers I was in to stereo] :thumbsup:

The best thing to do is simply get it so it sounds good to you !
