Hi everyone, its been a while since the original forums closed up!  Good to see that some are still hanging around.  Anyways, I just built a new PC and was looking for some information on soundcards that can output stronger signals through its 5.1 outputs.  I'm currently using a CM Storm Sirus headset that has true 5.1 sound (I don't want to argue with those who say 5.1 is worthless in headphones, so please don't bring it up ) and would like to get a little more volume out of it than I'm getting with my onboard (Asus SupremeFX IV aka ALC 898 with fancy red glowing shield)  Is there a soundcard out there that will allow me to boost the signal output on each of these channels to get a higher volume or is there one that just spits out a stronger signal across all the channels?
