i'm after a good but reasonable priced card.. i definetly dont have hundreds to splash out on an audigy or something and its not required. I just want a nice card with good sound quality, and which i can record to without stuttering or anything.

can anyone reccomend a good card that doesnt really break the bank, i will be buying this online aswell so a site reccomendation might be good aswell. thanx

I use www.newegg.com for all my computer part needs. They have several inexpensive soundcards. The Sound Blaster Live 5.1 for $35 would probably work nicely.

ugh, not a sb live

how much ya willing to spend?

For under 100, you can get the best consumer card out there: MAudio Revolution 7.1

For half that price check out the Turtle Beach Santa Cruz (also sold as the Video Logic Sonic Fury)

Here, I'll break the pattern and repeat a recommendation:

Turtlebeach

A friend had an audigy and gave up on it. Too much set up hassle, too many features.
We got a turtle beach next and had no problems setting up and loves the sound quality. Good price too.

I just purchased an Audigy 2 ZS -- love it, sound is phenomenal. I've also used Turtle Beach products and they are very nice, too.

Audigy 2 ZS on NewEgg - $89
Turtle Beach - Santa Cruz is $49 and $75, OEM and Retail respectively.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
