Seem like a good company coming from South korea (origin of quality brands like Samsung, Cowon, Iriver products)
I am concerned about game crashes on non-creative card but you say there is none
that is atleast a good news
Yea 128kbps mp3 realy sucks
when i first got into mp3 back in 2000 i didnt care and most mp3 was 128kbps
later i didnt went under 192kbps
Today i dont go under 256kbps mp3 (same bitrate as m4a from itunes)
but prefer to stay at 320kbps
In fact some of the music i listened to much before at 128kbps has or is being remplaced with 256kbps + mp3
I also never go under db99
since 2004 i have used Mp3gain to bump up Db up to 99-100
i do sacrifice some sound in favor of sound volume
this is mostly for the mp4 audio player to sound louder.
however i never db+ more than like 3db or so
if i get a mp3 with like 80+db i just trash them and find another thats atleast 96db
then bump them to 99db with mp3gain and so far im happy.
so for me good bitrate mp3 and high db is important.
Btw, Now i ordered Beyerdynamic Dt770 pro 80ohms headphones
they arive in a couple of days by courrier service
and i hope i will be happy with them.
I decided to go beyer cause is pretty looking, comphy and good sounding.
the bass is a bit heavy while if i dont like it i can EQ it down a bit i guess.
i have been most used to sennheiser and koss but beyer will be my first audiophile headphone.
Before when i was younger i used a lot of Sony and Aiwa walkman headphones
but that was before i got internet and could order online other good brands.
BTW2 : I see your Case is coolermaster they make good cases
I got a HAF-X coolermaster case and put in 3x 200mm red LED light fans
My gaming rig will have Red light all over The 200mm fans, another thermaltake spinq red light fan, saitek/logitech red light keyboard, Razer Naga molten etc...
