Hello

\015\012Theres no such thing as an "unsafe sound card". You can spend anywhere from $20 all the way up to $300 depending on exactly what you are looking for
\015\012
\015\012Installing a sound card into your computer is easy and takes around 10 minutes. You basically have to unplug your computer , unscrew the side panel , slide off the side panel and then you will see some slots on the mainboard , some of which should be empty. Its then a simple matter of unscrewing the backplate so the outputs on the card can be accessed from the back of your machine and pushing the card firmly into the slot. It can only go one way so theres not much room for failure!

\015\012Personally though , ive never really had the need for a sound card. All recent computers have sound built into the motherboard and if all you are doing is listening to music and playing a few games then its generally hard to tell the difference between onboard audio and a sound card. Id only recommend a sound card if you are a serious audio fanatic who does something like sound engineering as a career and is very picky about the level of sound that you get.
\015\012
\015\012Sound quality is also determined by speakers. Bad quality speakers and top notch sound cards will still give bad sound quality!

Hi, I got a serious problem with my PC. The PC was working as "normal", but the monitor display was not "perfect" :-). So I went to control panel->display->setting->advanced->monitor.
