[ddots-l] Re: sound blaster audigy

I'm pretty sure that windows will find those sound max cards just as easily. 
The cards that are built on to the mother boards will most likely take less 
system resources because they can be addressed at a lower level than an 
add-on card.  Some of the built-in cards even have surround sound support 
these days so they can be used for playing DVD's etc.

Couldn't you turn off the sound card on the motherboard?  Then when the 
Audigy is installed,
performance shouldn't be affected because additional IRQ's that the 
motherboard sound card was using
will be freed up.

You are right though, Jim doesn't really need to have the Audigy installed. 
I to have     a sound
card on my motherboard.  However, I have turned it off in the bios.  I 
elected to put in a Sound
Blaster Platinum because I new that when performing a clean install of 
Windows XP home, XP would
find the audio drivers.  I would therefore have speech enabled from the 
earliest opportunity.
