You are for real.. audigy 2 = ownage.. I like creative hardware, but the software is so invasive and retarded (you CAN'T download the drivers, you have to install off the CD and then update) .. and I still haven't successfully gotten my 6.1 inspire system to sound evenly front and back

btw.. i was listening to some soundstorm.. and I heard a bunch of junk like all onboard sound.. no thanks!

The creative software isisnt that invasive as others. Try philips cards then LMK. BTW I will never own another philips card as long as I breathe air. Those drivers make no sense and need to be installed manually in many cases.

let phillips stick to toothbrushes.. I wouldn't buy them either.. I've heard good things about the turtle beach cards.. but I got this because of the 6.1 capability..

I hear about Problems with creative cards, how they cards use up more CPU, and install more crap programs you don't need. Someone I know has one and it installed and it installed this bar on top of her desktop, more memory needlessly used up.

edit: but yeah I hear your speakers are pretty good

yea since you can spend $300 on megaworks.. $100 for these doesn't seem that bad.. i mean they can't be 3 times better than this.. The software is invasive but can be controlled.. and I don't like the fact that the front center is always the quietest speaker no matter how loud you tell it to get (yes i've switched speakers.. they're all the same)
