Sound card- which is better?

  Base Delta Zero 11:42 24 May 2005

I have two sound cards a Creative Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Digital (SB0220)and a Creative Sound Blaster Live! 7.1 24-bit. I was wondering which is actually the better out of these two cards? I can't find out much about the first one.

The 7.1 capable is the newer card and can run more speakers and fully supported at present by creative. IIRC the 5.1 is now no longer being made and I don't think it had the 24 bit sound capability.

Of course unless you are a true audiophile with great speakers I don't believe you would notice any difference.

The 7.1 24bit card is the better of the two

Base Delta Zero,

Also meant to add, this card is better quality than the "live" card.

oh i have a good set of creative 6.1 speakers. I ordered a new sound card for the old pc (the 7.1 one) and then it occured to me that it might be better than the 5.1 one, that i have in my new pc.
