Peffse Posted September 30, 2009 Share Posted September 30, 2009 Ok, I have horrible luck with integrated sound, and I want to have a sound card. Of course, I hear the horror stories about Creative's sound cards. I heard about Daniel_K and his custom drivers for Audigy cards. I also know that those cards are not sold anymore.So, I have a couple tough decisions to make:1) I want to avoid Creative, but all the other cards seems too pricey. The price range I'm looking at is $50-$100. I can deal with lower, but I know you get what you pay for!2) I don't want something that is software emulated, which is another reason I want to avoid Creative, with their deceptive naming scheme. Of course, I'm not even sure if that's possible anymore, since I recently switched to Vista (or possibly 7 soon).3) I have both PCI and PCI-e x1, but I've heard bad things about PCI-e sound cards... is any of that true?Integrated isn't an option. I always have compatibility issues, plus it's kinda creepy actually. There static coming through my speakers from my sound card, and it sounds like somebody running down a rainy street. A little unsettling at times. Hahahaha...Any help is very appreciated!(Oh, and I did a forum search already, and while there are some great posts out there, they didn't really help) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
