Audigy (and Creative in general) have really crappy drivers. I would stay away from Creative until they fix this. The Hercules Game Theater XP 6.1 is a really good buy as far as I've heard and I'm thinking of buying one myself. There is also a 7.1 card, but it does not have the external rack.

do that, but the Audigy is supported by mostly everyone, and it runs on mostly all pro desktops. but you have to get around the price, i have the MP3+ and that was $100 when i bought it.

Thats a good point,I doubt the hercules will be as well supported as the audigy,and getting round the price of the audigy is easy I can get a OEM version for £49.35 on www.overclockers.co.uk.

Thx $tUy_B for them links.
The reviews of the Hercules Game Theater XP 6.1 are very good I've not seen a bad one yet.

another great sound card to get would be the turtle beach santa cruz

awesome sound..

the audigy gamer/mp3+ can be bought at some repuatable places oem for around 50-60 dollars... good cards... I have no probs with them..

the santa cruz should run the same price and again my brother has this and has had no problems at all with it...

note that I have creative speakers... and with the creative audigy card they do come alive compared to my old rig :)

not used hercules gamer so I cant comment on it..

extigy btw... EXCELLENT... not worth the money but if you can get it on the cheap someplace... buy it... EXCELLENT..

I am speaking from personal experience with these products... those that I have used... and I am a hardcore gamer/multimedia person...
