Okay if anyone out there has bought the new Sound Blaster Audigy and could share the best setup for hardware and software wise- tell me what you did and how you did it please. I just bought this card and I'm going to get the Inspire 5.1 to see if its worth it. This is my second time installing the software/hardware and need info on this subject quick! First time I installed: I installed all the software just to check it all out and it slowed my boot times over 75% which totally sucked! So I instantly reformatted b/c for some reason I couldn't restore my computer to an earlier state. I want the the best setup for hardware and software setup on installing this new sound card please anyone help!
