They all will make your gaming, movies, and music sound like a shimmering mermaids. Or you can just use your motherboard's sound, or buy whichever one is cheaper, or has the best availability in your region. I'd buy the Soundblaster, or the Essence STX II, but probably the Soundblaster.

Pick a motherboard that already includes the latest version of Realtek audio chip, the ALC1220.
Which should be more than adequate for almost any kind of PC audio usage.

Are you for real? I have seen you on a couple other forums today asking about cpus and video cards and just reasking the same question when someone gives you an answer. Do you do this when you go grocery shopping?

I've seen the same questions posted word-for-word on at least four other hardware sites, and like you pointed out, when an answer is given, it's always "But they said this".

Seriously, asking how long a GPU will "last" before even it's even released, and not willing to put any time into reading an actual review. I mean there are thousands of reviews out there for the 8700k comparing it to previous generation CPUs. If a person wants a new PC, but doesn't want to put any effort into it, they should just buy a pre-built PC like Dell or HP. I don't mind helping people who are confused about something, but come on........

EDIT June 17th:

It looks like one of the other hardware sites has removed the user's posts as spam, and it looks like they have also worn out their welcome at Tom's Hardware:

http://www.tomshardware.com/answers...buy-asus-strix-raid-dlx-asus-essence-stx.html

The trick now is actually buying something, vice asking/demanding in an obnoxious tone with repeated 'tell me now what is best!/'tell me now which I should buy, darn it!'-fashion in 4 different sections daily....often repating it 3 times per question....
(Granted, one method is much less expensive...)

BUY SOMETHING!!!!!!
