    It's actually for my son, but we have identical computers....he complains of the microphone needing the boost turned on so that he can be heard during gaming, but causes crackling noises....but ok on teamspeak...tried front and rear sockets, same issue...assume mobo to fix this I thought a good soundcard..

    Sounds like a good plan , Creative did always have Clean sound , as I don't game much anymore I have just done with the Onboard the last couple of years especially since I use headphones and don't need 7.1 or even a Mike since I don't play Team games online.

    The cheaper Card is still supported by Realtek , I'd guess unless Creative changed it somehow , but I can't say for sure it will be any better than what you have.

    Did you try a USB Mike instead ? eg the one in a Webcam even?

    Using built in mic with
    HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile - Red headset, so has to come from audio sockets, I guess......
    my son only uses a headset for gaming, so wonder if that sound card would be overkill...

    Those Headphones come with a USB Control box , have you tried it with the Headphones connected to it rather than direct to the soundcard?

    checkout the manual here :
