Can you guys help me on buying a new soundcard? I am going to use the soundcard for games, movies and no professional audio/video-editing. Both cards are without external bracket. I've heard that the Audigy cards have crappy drivers for Windows XP, but they provide a better soundquality. And there's the EAX standard. The Live card uses EAX1, while the Audigy uses EAX2, but do you really notice the difference? I am planning on using the Creative Inspire 5.1 5300 Analog speakers with it. When you choose the last option (Other card), please specify what card you mean. Thanks for helping me out.
