Sound Cards

I need to get a new sound card that supports 5.1 Are sound cards 'much of a muchness' or are they like graphics cards where there are better quality ones than others. Maybe someone could recommend where I should get one from and what type. Thanks.

[email protected]®, I recently purchased a 5.1 soundcard and did a little research before I bought it.

From what I could gather, it's the same as most things in life, you pays for what you get. So if you want good sound reproduction, it'll cost.

In saying that, I still plumped for one of these click here

(I didn't get mine from dabs though, got it from ebuyer for £4.29 plus delivery. Looks like they've sold out on ebuyer).

I bought it to go with some 5.1 surrond sound headphones and the sound reproduction is good and it installed no probs. For the price I payed, even if it was rubbish/didn't work, I didn't loose much.

It all boils down to personal choice. Do you take a risk on something cheap, or go for quality an pay more. I was obviously fortunate with my card.

HTH, dagwoood.
