    What Audio Hardware Should I Use?

      Intel Core i7-4930K, Asus GeForce GTX 780, Silverstone Temjin SST-TJ04B-E (Black) - My Video Editing Build - percoplus's…

      I am building this rig at the moment. I have everything on hand except for the Quadro K4000 which should be here any time.


      There is so much info online about system components for video editing, but I am not sure what to do about my audio setup. I am certain the motherboard's onboard audio is capable, but should I get an external box, mixer, etc.? What about speakers?


      I have had a set of M-Audio BX5a Speakers connected to my current system's sound card, but one of them is defective and need replacement. So, I'm going shopping today. Not sure if I should go with a good set of computer speakers from Fry's or to Guitar Center for an elaborate audio interface with studio monitors. I am not a sound engineer, but I do film musical performances and other events and would like to deliver somewhat professional sounding video.
