    PCSPECIALIST Monitor Advice Requested

    Ok, so either way, you'd need a multi channel receiver for the PC speaker setup, a gaming soundcard would just be really bad for those. But doesn't have to be something amazing, a good entry level Yamaha or Denon or something. Then I'd set it up in the same way as previously suggested with...

    Yep, makes sense. Just to confirm, are the Dali speakers intended for the PC, or totally separate for your main audio system?

    Just further, for the best surround processing for gaming, you can buy the DTS or Dolby Access surround processing from the windows store. Just right click on the sound icon in the task bar on the bottom right, go to spacial surround, and there you get the option for either. I think the Atmos...

    No, the onboard is just as good these days, but either way, you only need a raw signal from the PC, and it just wouldn't be enough to make the most of your setup to run from a gaming soundcard direct to the speakers. The amp you have has a really high end DAC already in it, the best solution...

    Right, that's what I was trying to get to. You don't need a separate amp for the PC, just use your current one unless it's in a separate space? Good choice on the G9, sorry, went rather off topic, that's definitely the one we would always recommend for this kind of build.

    You still need an amp to drive the speakers though? They're not powered no?

    perhaps, I'd be surprised if it was that high, but it's complete crap quality and would sound awful. A gaming soundcard is not designed for the setup you're thinking of. It's designed for pretty low end, low power 7.1 satellites with a generic sub slapped on for the low end. All the money goes...

    Oooooo no no no, that would be an utter travesty, please don’t do that! We’re entering a beautiful world here! Those speakers and headphones need some quality to run properly. If you stick a gaming soundcard on, it’s quite literally not going to be able to run the headphones at all as they’re...

    It's the motherboard speaker for sounding mobo alarms.

    Oh, in that case yeah, gaming soundcard is definitely not what you want. I take it you're just connecting through to an Amp from the PC?

    I wouldn't run a defrag on an SSD, doesn't do any good, actually reduces the lifespan. SSD's don't fragment, so it literally does nothing other than use up R/W's.
