Posted · Original PosterOP

So long short story is i want to start streaming and i cant get the Voicemeeter to work so i can get my discord out of the stream and it's driving me crazy . And i know it is easier with a secondary sound card . What options do i have? not the cheapest or the most expensive , but something that works just fine . i have this if it helps

You could just get a DAC AMP that plugs in via usb and does the exact same thing a sound card would. But you want a sound card. Here is what I recommend for a sound card: https://www.amazon.com/Blaster-Performance-Headphone-Forming-Microphone/dp/B009ISU33E/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=sound+card&qid=1593697783&sr=8-3

 

This one is a bit more expensive, but it's very good for gaming. It's a bit more expensive. It's very good, but a dac amp is cheaper and just saying you should check out a dac amp. That's my recommendation, and please let me know if it's too expensive so I can give you a cheaper option.

Here is a fairly basic dac amp: https://www.amazon.com/Fosi-Audio-Headphone-Digital-Analog/dp/B07VDQQY95/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=dac+amp&qid=1593700448&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzNjZPSFBWMDJCMlZLJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjQ2NzgwM0FaREZONEI0QU5VVyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNDg2MzI3MzdMR1BYR0gyUUQ4RSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

 

You plug in your headphones to the 3.5mm audio jack on either the dac or sound card, and connect the dac to the pc via usb, or sound card via pcie. 

Here is a techquickie video explaining the differences between both of them. Watch it and decide which one is better for you. After you watch the video and decide which is better for you, I will recommend a dac or sound card (depending on what you pick). Then tell you how to install it and use it.
