I recommend anything but Creative.It has horrible drivers.
I suggest checking out the Asus Xonar
Go for the Xonar. Done my research and highly recommend any of their cards.
Thanks. Any price for Xonar soundcard?
I had an ancient Soundblater Live, but it seems doesn't compatible with my motherboard. Once installed the computer will not start. No choice have to use the onboard soundcard now. The card have no problem with my old motherboard.
Wow... just wow. I have always likes Creative Labs. The hardware they made was good, and I never had a problem with drivers. I guess I should be happy I don't want or need Vista, otherwise I would be having some major problems.
See, I have an Audigy ZS2 upgraded to Platinum. I use all the analog I/O in the back (directly on the card) , the optical input in the bay, and sometimes the analog input from the bay as well. I use the Dolby Digital and DTS hardware decoding all the time. All the features I want, and no problems with XP.
It's a shame, because I had no idea this stuff was going on. They were a good company once, and now I don't know where to go to keep all the features when I do upgrade my system.
I had once installed Vista on my Old PC with old Sound Blaster Live, unfortunately Creative Lab have NO driver for Vista, and they had announced that they WILL NOT create driver for that. We have to use at least Audigy if we want to use Vista. Too bad...
And fortunately i found another 3rd party driver which in compatibale for SB live! to be use in VISTA. Anyway, i had deleted the Vista.
$90 - $200
That's for the internal sound cards. Go with the Xonar DX for $90 - probably the best buy currently. Crushes Xfi in terms of quality and drivers work.
IS that US dollar or Malaysia Ringgit?
Malaysia wha...? U.S. dollars.
sorry. i think i asked a stupid question.
If US$90, it is quite reasonable to fight against the X-Fi.
Just found the price for Xonar D2 at RM559. U1 at RM299.
Can't afford to get Xonar D2, maybe go for U1, so cute.
Aiyah, you from malaysia mah~~ Some place can get cheaper 1 xD..I think i might go for Auzentech or some other brand Hmm, currently eyeing on the Asus DX and the D2X
Is there Xonar DX yet?
The Asus Xonar DX is very attractive, high performance with less price. See those solid cap and Japanese components~~~
Now going to find the price. Hard to find this on the street, as all the shops are filled with Creative Lab products.
Dude, jz release 1 leh..Malaysia market also not in yet. Price should be around 290-300+ I think.
Fine... just sit here and wait~~~~~~Hopefully Malaysia market is fast enough in IT product.
Looks pretty for RM300+, eh?
It does and Chai is my Canadian rubbing off on you EH lol
Price range should be around there.. I converted it from the price available at newegg . it actually performs just as good as the Asus Donar D2X and if i not mistaken it just lacks oft DTS only.
Yes, basically it's a D2X without the bling, EMI shield and software. Quality should be almost identical.
That's a PCIe 1x card, right?
Yup. Should be having higher performance than Old PCI cards.
But I wonder if the card can squiisse into the middle of 2 SLI (crossfire) Graphic cards.
