For some reason, I've always been bothered by the thoughts of onboard sound. It just doesn't seem right. Anyway, I used my old trusty Soundblaster Live Value for my new box, but it seems I keep reading about Creative's "non-standard" ways, and to stay away from their cards in some instances. I'm having no problems that I'm aware of using my old card, but if anyone has any advice on using the onboard sound vs. the card, I'd like to hear. I know, I know, why not just give the onboard a try and find out. Well, I'd like some opinion, before I clean out the drivers and remove the card. I'm lazy, I'll save work whenever possible.
