OSNN Senior Addict
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

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:


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 have Audigy sound card and seems ok now but when i first got it had nothing but problems..the thing with creative labs is bad drivers if i knew the drivers sucked that bad would of went with santa cruz heard nothing but good things about that sound card.

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
