If you're saying on a Dell Studio XPS 8000, then yes! The tech specs here say that it has 2 "PCIe x1" slots. Just populate one on the slots with the sound card and turn off the onboard audio in the BIOS.
I have the DG version, what different is this DGX compared to the previous verion of DG? 10 Aug 2014
The DG version uses a conventionnal PCI socket whereas the DGX uses a PCIe socket. Today, most of the motherboards don't have a PCI socket because PCIe is its successor and is faster.
If you actually mean the P5QPL-AM then I don't see any reason why not. The board has a PCI-e x1 slot above the PCI-e x16 (the blue slot normally used for graphics cards). So long as that is not being used for anything else it should fit and work fine. (Make sure you disable the onboard sound card in the BIOS first before fitting).
If I install your Xonar DGS 5.1 will it get rid of the raspy high sounds when playing MP3 on Media player 8 Oct 2014
If your internal soundcard is making those noises then yes this card will fix that as it takes over.
I'm using ASUS P8Z77-V LX Motherboard with on board Realtek which doesn't sound great. Will this be better? 11 Sep 2014
Yes it should be. As a general rule the separate sound-card will give better results. Motherboard sound systems are always a compromise between available space and system components. I've tried motherboard-based systems initially and always ended up with a dedicated sound-card shortly after.
Do I need a sound card for audio on my pc games to record onto elgato or will it record the game audio without a sound card? 9 Oct 2014
No HDMI recording with elgato will have its own audio. Through HDMI, this is for headphone amp and better quality sound on your pc. Elgato is for console recording. But game audio will record without this sound card aslobg as you have some kind of sound (headphones or something)
My in-built soundcard suffers from a lot of interference, even responding to mouse movement, will this card solve my problem? 28 days ago
Possibly. If I was you I'd try it, if it doesn't work send it back, if it does work then great!
I've the Turtle Beach PX4 and wanted to upgrade my soundcard in order to get surround sound. Would I need an additional external decoder to get 5.1 12 Nov 2014
I believe the PX4 has a SPDIF input to its 'box of tricks' so the SPDIF output on the Asus Xonar DGX 5.1 should be enough.
