Final decision .. [?] ..


Graphic Designer
An upgrade nearly coming and will pick' one or two these components ..

1- Sound Blaster Live 5.1! 31$
2- Sound Blaster Audigy Player 75$
3- Amd Athlon XP 2000+ 83$

And there are some minor difficulties in my mind refering to :
1 . should I take the 5.1! Live & 256 DDR PQI
2 . Only the processor ( will run on my mobo ECS K7S5A2 - Sis735? )
3 . Only Sound Blaster Audigy Player

Current spec : Athlon 1.1 - 128 SDR ( Ac'97 onboard ) .
I would like also to find out the differences between 5.1! Live & Audigy Player : - in fact this is my major problem ..

Any quick replies will be aprecciated ;)


Must be dreaming...
Me, not being much of a sound freak (I just want sound! :D), IMHO, I would keep the AC'97 for now, and get the processor and/or RAM. Whether the processor would run, better check your mobo's manual.

Best of luck to ya.

This question really depends on speakers. A higher proc will help you, but not by much considering you only have 128 meg memory. The page file can make up for this but only if you have a fast hdd. If you don't have a 5.1 speaker set up, it won't matter which card you go with. The extra memory will probably do you the most good. Honestly though, i'd save and not worry about it, as you aren't going to significantly improve anything other than paper figures.
