take your pick from the creative soundcard range. I have an audigy 2 zs that has great sound but there are more recent cards in the x-fi range. you disable ac97 in bios then shut down, install the card, restart pc, new hardware found wizard starts and asks for the driver, use the cd that comes with the card.

il remember that. would i do the same with a graphics card? i think all ive got now is integrated.

with a graphics card it normally auto disables onboard graphics when you install the card.
