I know about computers but have never been an AudioPhile so I always have used the Motherboard for sounds.

I have a new motherboard and the sound is being a pain though, so I want to get a sound card instead. What I want to do is run my two pc speakers (single green 3.5mm jack) and also still be able to hookup the Mic/Headphone ports from the PC case for which I have the option of an AC97 or AZALIA (HD AUDIO) plug (note that this is an OR, not an AND).

Alternately if anyone knows what would cause speakers and headphones to fuzz alot that would help to. My headphone ports were dead so I replugged the connector and now both the rear port straight off the board, and the headphone ports buzz. System specs are in sig and the Motherboard is an ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO.

If your using front panel audio connections depending on where the cables are routed they can pick up noise from the motherboard. for Sound cards I personally recommend Creative sound cards that's all I use and they have great sound quality for the price. The Audigy and the X-FI are both great cards.

K thanks, actually as NUTZ as it sounds. I fixed the noise by enabling/disabling the various ports with the HD Audo Deck program included with the Mainboard. I think it is really screwed up somehow though.

I will look into the cards.
