    if you get a mobo with good onboard... then don't worry...

    else go with audigy or turtle beach santa cruz... also a good card...

    lol... that was my original plan too...

    I hooked up my friends rig same way... he has everything going through his amp... and his speakers are kickass...

    I could not afford the same though :)

    hey sazar, i have an old (but very good) amp from Sansui, and two Dual (westerngerman brand) 25 watts 2 way speakers, and two dutch hand made Studiotech speakers, both 3way 125 watts each...soundcard is standard onboard, hooked up to a mixtable and then connected to the amp, also have an old JVC cd player on the table, fun for mixing cd's with mp3's from the computer :D, just go to some garden sale and see if you can find anything good...

    MOst think that audigy is the best out there. maybe most of those guys haven't heard of Acoustic edge from Philips. If you are serious about sound gaming or otherwise I suggest you check Philips offering.;)

    i think i read somehwere that their cards are pretty good. definitely worth looking into.

    also, keep in mind creative is not the best with driver support. i still have issues with my audigy. and don't forget about that terratec card i mentioned... it's awesome.

    i have digital cambridge speakers... i think they're great. nice balanced sound and great fidelity.

    but the ultimate solution would be an external stereo amp and tower speakers.

    Philips Acoustic Edge is the best I've had, including better than my Audigy, simply cause it can make _everything_ into high quality 5.1 sound.
