    hey matey. its good to be back and involved! ive been away for 3 months or so travelling!!!

    my understanding of the differences are simply the software that comes bundled with it.

    you get the same card, and its only the software or a bundled 'live drive' that differentiates between the products.

    does that help?

    i suspected there would be a price diference beetween them, there always seems 2 be a great price diference for the same/very similar product.

    audigy 2 = more range... sound effects...

    audigy gamer is first gen audigy.. and if you are getting it for 99 dollars... that seems a bit steep... online you can get it for around 70-80 bucks..

    audigy 2 = better deal and is also 6.1 channel ready vs 5.1 channel ready for audigy gamer...

    yeah... "audigy gamer" = audigy 1 card... not 2

    or else it would be called the "audigy 2 gamer". :blink:

    Sazar is exactly right.
    I've had a audigy gamer and i have a audigy 2 now.
    The only good thing about the gamer was that i got
    deus ex game of the year edition bundled with it.
    Still have it, super game.
