I recently purchased a new mboard (Asus crosshair formula z) and realized that the audio jack is defective? THere is no sound in my left channel.
I was then going to plug in my trusty 8 year old sound card - THE AUDIGY 2 ZS MUAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAHA.......MAUAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA.
I pick up my old sound card thinking, "onboard audio lol."
As I open my case and attempt to fit my sound card it dawns on me - THIS BOARD HAS NO PCI SLOTS - NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
Now I am in a very frustrating position:
Should I buy an Asus Xonar x1 PCI-E sound card?
Should I attempt to fix my onboard audio? Left channel isnt working :(
Are pci slots outdated now? Do the best motherboards have them?
