full duplex/2 sound cards

  Socalled 12:31 11 Jul 2003

Hi , can anyone shed some light please, I have an Audigy platinum sound card and i wish to use Msn audio for conversation through a microphone,but it seems that my Audigy platinum is not full duplex which is required to achieve this.
Can i install a second sound card which does have full duplex along side my existing sound card,and if so what if any software do i require to switch from one to the other,and also what are the problems i may come across.

Installing two sound cards will result in a conflict. Why would you need two anyway? Just replace the one you have with a full duplex.

Thank you for your response, but my audigy cost me over £90 when i bought it and for a full duplex sound card i could pay as little as £20.
and there are other utilities on Audigy that ordinary sound cards dont have ,also according to the link that OneSirKnight kindly gave me the only conflict reported is of 2 cards from the same manufacturer.Thanks again for taking the time out to reply.
