i just bought a new case. it is a thermetake, www.thermaltake.com/
its the red one and black one
i am trying to use the top audio on it but it only works with onboard audio. can any one make it work with my soundcard. i gota soundblaster pci 512.
if not i want to know if there is some software that i can use 2 audio devices at the same time or if there is something i can click on and it will change it real fast..........i dont want to have to go throught control panel to do it?

basically in the bios you can disable onboard audio.. plug your pci sound card in and then install sound card drivers in windows or whatever o/s you are using and it should work fine...

as for using 2 sound devices ? I don' t know if that can be done...

AFAIK windows will dedicate resources to one sound card... display drivers are another thing... there is built in support for multiple monitors in windows... but not for sound AFAIK...

nope, 2 souncards works fine, no Cpu overhead.

i have the asus a7n8x onboard sound for teamspeak, whilst using a soundblaster audigy for normal Audio playback.

goto sound properties and select which you want for playback and what you want for Recording Etc.

didn't know that :)

but yah now you mention it... thats true... you do have the option to select the device...

I thought that was just for devices such a midi and what not... if you had musical inclinations..or something like that...

:D

ok... but we dont usually have 2 threads on the same topic posted by the same person running @ the same time...

just fyi... :)

if you do happen to start another thread and the topic is related... pm me or another mod in this section and let us know so we can either merge.. or close one of the threads... :)

cheers..
