It's not bad. I'm planning on the first one soon, and anything is better than onboard. I wouldn't spend more than that unless I had plenty of cash and went all the way to get the best available.

Also, with the that one you can get some decent speakers to go with. Some people think z640s are no good, purely because they are cheap, but they can't be compared with $800 home theatre speaker sets, because they are built for gaming.

I have Z-640s running of onboard Intel sound, which is pretty average, though with the value card it would kick ass.

I have soundblaster audigy 2 zs with 5.1 surround sound + sub-woofer that i tweaked myself [Harmon Kardon makes awesome speakers - be sure to check out their website].

i've always been satisifed with soundblaster, and the Audigy 2 zs is reasonably priced from places i've noticed - under $120 can..

ernastcruzI dont know a friend of mine ran that value card and took it back same day...just running standard under 100 dollar 5.1 speakers he had issues. It did sound better on the good card. THe thing you have to remember when you start buying value you can get stuck with a celeron int his case its just a crappy sound card. I think sound is just as important is video.

Probably didn't know what he was doin'. Drivers I bet, always the problem...

Sound Blaster IS the standard. Audigy IS the new standard. Anything with those names I'd buy, as long as its legit. A sound card is a sound card, the most important parts are the speakers.
