Default Sound card question

Im gona use Real world 5.1 speakers (subwoofer and 5 other speakers) with the CREATIVE LABS SOUND BLASTER AUDIGY 2 PCI 24-BIT. Is this is a good combination? Im not looking for the shake the pictures on the wall kinda experience. More for gaming and pretty good music quality.

I have a sound blaster live with old compaq JBLs I got from my school, the little speakers within my monitor, and a 10' home theater sub woffer. Trust me, it'll shake the house If you can wire it right, it'll sound fine.

AH, I thought you meant like stereo/home theater speakers... Real world...I dind't realize that was a brand ^^;;; LOL

Anyway, they look pretty good. 40 watts isn't bad for a computer sub, and most speakers are about 5 watts, so 8 watt sattelites isn't bad.

Now if you really wanted to take advantage of that card, I'd reccomend some digital/optical speakers. However, it's probably pointless to spend the extra money unless you get feedback/static of some sort...

If you REALLY want bass, and you have room, I'd do like I did and get a standard home theater sub. I mean some computer speakers and sound really good, but I've yet to find anything close to my 10" sub

Speakers are more impt than the sound card. Its no point getting an excellent sound card if you're using a pair of lousy speakers
