So I get a static or airy sound when playing back recorded video/audio, and when in-game "team speak" freinds here the same underlying static.

any advise would be nice.

Which should I buy first sound card or microphone?



Sound card--Realtek ALC662 5.1



logitech g230 gaming headset $60.00

logitech c920 webcam


Fixes tried,

played with settings--no fix

tried the back of computer ports--no fix

shut down all possible environmental influences--no fix

downloaded software--no fix

Hello, welcome. I think that I would try a new microphone first, your soundcard shouldn't be the source of this type of distortion. If it was hum or a clicking sound, then I would have recommended a new soundcard first. Of course you could try both fixes and go for the cheapest one first. If that works, then you do not need to proceed to plan B.

So I figured it out somehow
I set the sound settings to for playback to realtek default, all others disabled...set the the levels aty playback at mic-50, front pink-in 01, line in 51, front green 50...

I set the recording tab to my cam as default, all others disabled.. and levels at 12 dont think that matters

The sound is 100% better a new better headset or yeti mic would be nice but good for now.

thanks for the info everyone. if you have any questions in the future let me know
