Re: Need help with sound card
for me, the 7.1 is too much since i dont have surround sound, and even if i did, i would get the 5.1, i think thats what the numbers are for.
Its pretty much better to avoid onboard, but there are people that say onboard sound is good enough if you dont do any music things. I would just go with an Creative sound card, and the cheapest one. Either way, its an improvement if you have a good speaker.
