I need a new sound card so i'm looking for some insight. I need a good bang-for-the-buck card, with eax enhanced hd... my old crappy aureal vortex (a3d) just isn't cutting the mustard anymore. Looking to spend under $100 (if possible). ...any info would be appreciated, thx in advance. p.s. or if anyone knows of a good site that compares/reviews recent sound cards. My Machine: P4 2.4 ghz -533 fsb 768 2700 RAM Ati Radeon 9600xt 128mb (place new sound card here) Current addictions : BF1942/DC and SOF2
You can get a damn nice M-Audio Revolution 7.1 for $100.
SoundBlaster Audigy (I have SB Audigy mp3+ version, $120 CDN a year ago) should be under $100 these days if SB Audigy2 isn't, Great card that works in just about anything.
this is the easiest reply ive ever had to doGet the sSoundblaster Audigy2 ZS its the best sound out there, EAX 4.0, Advanced HD, and RS3 Raven Shield all for $89.00 - http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=29-102-162&catalog=57&manufactory=BROWSE&depa=1
