I am building a new PC...
and to get good quality audio in and out of REAPER,
should I:

----------------------
OPTION ONE
----------------------

Use the PC's line-out / line-in connected to a mixer.
(the built-in audio chipset (Realtek ALC892 - 7.1 channels)


-----------------------
OPTION TWO
-----------------------

Add a PCIe/PCE sound card to connect to the mixer
(if you think this generates a better quality flow of audio)

OR

----------------------
OPTION THREE
----------------------

Bypass the mixer and just use my audio interface (see signature) with a FireWire connection to PC

What say you?

Is option #1 sufficient ... for now?
