    Im having trouble finding out whats so good about santa cruz audio cards. I got 1 sat infront of me & my trusty SB live 5.1 installed.
    I would like to know if the turtle beach is better for gaming than the SB live, I'm a hardcore gamer and thats all i want my PC for, just wondering if its worth dropping this santa cruz in.:rolleyes:

    I just found the santa cruz is 20 bit, and seems to support directsound & other gaming stuff, my SB live 5.1 is 16 bit.:D

    The Turtle beach has better digital support, if i remember correctly too, think it has optical out(TOS), or iam i thinking of the Hercules muse?!

    aye, the turtle beach has the digital out - im pretty sure it does.

    its a l33t card imo - wish i had spent the extra 30 or so quid at the time of gettin the sb live and got it.
