    it depends what sound it is, if it is the sandstorm sound then the onboard one is better than any creative product but other than that i dont know

    The soundblater pci 512 is crap. or at least the XP driver for it are. I had one for about a year and a half, and I had all kinds of driver issuses.

    I have both, but I only use the Audigy, never tried the Soundstorm

    Where do you live, as in most places the SB Live 5.1 is really cheap and it should compete well with the onboard and is lots better than the other sb cards under it. i recently got an audigy2 and its been nothing but good clean sound and problem free too.
