    Default What Soundcard?

    I am in need of a new soundcard as my currant cheap one seems to be not working properly (the sound is wavey and it warbles a bit).
    I connect it to my stereo using a jack plug to phono connectors, but I have a surround sound system not too far away and both that and my stereo have an optical connection, so I would like a sound card with this if there is such a thing.
    I don't really want to spend a shit load as I don't use it for much apart from listening to music I have downloaded.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Creative Audigy soundcard is the best one mate. There are various models but they all have an Optical out I think - there about £50.

    You can pick up a Hercules GameTheaterXP 6.1 for less than 100 notes (puts the Audigy to shame IMO).
    Understeer is when you hit a wall with the front of your car
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of your car
    Horsepower is how fast your car hits the wall
    Torque is how far your car sends the wall across the field once you've hit it

    I'd vote with this man, Audigy's are overhyped and noted to have problems. Plus they're Creative, 'nuff said

    Yeah Audigys are pretty good apart from the gameport where the lead isnt very long but if u have plenty of PCI slots its not a problem.
