Which sound card????
    #4455999 - 07/26/05 04:45 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

'm need a sound card (been using onboard for a year....) and I can't decide between these



Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS PCI Sound Card $85.99CND


TurtleBeach Montego 7.1 Dolby Digital Live Surround PCI Sound Card $79.99 CND


Turtle Beach Catalina 7.1 Digital PCI Sound Card $39.99 CND


Chaintech 7.1 Channel PCI 24HT-S Sound Card $24.99CND

I don't have a 5.1 system or anything, I just want a decent sound card and can't decide between these. I'm leaning toward the cheaper Turtle Beach because I only have $100 and some money for booze would be nice :tongue:

Logitech X530 70-Watt PC Multimedia Home Theater Speakers

which will be an improvement over my 2 altec lansings

If I get this

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1080964&CatId=0

I should be able to afford the cheaper creative 7.1 system....but what would I do with all those damn speakers..

I think the $40 turtle beach may be better quality than the cheap 7.1 creatives and I really only need 5.1 sound

My stereo speakers have a built in amp and cd player thingy so thats fine.

I think I've settled on the Sound blaster Live! 24-bit card it supports 7.1 too. but have haven't decided on speakers yet, I'm thinking about these 2 sets:

or

Go to ebay and look for the "creative.labs" store there. Creative sells factory refurbs there for great prices, I just bought from them and I recommend it.
