Which onboard sound did you have? I've been told the newer Intel High
Definition sound built into some motherboards is really good.

Best sound card/video card advice for direct connect PC

Post by U2hhbXVzRn » Wed, 05 Jan 2005 22:55:03

I am pitching my Media Center Extender. After learing it will not play back
HDTV or DVDs and there is not solution on the horizon, I am just going to
connect my PC directly.

I am pretty informed on video cards, but never really considered anything
above/beyond standard sound cards.

Any advice on a good 3D, DVD capable sound card? Preferably with DVD audio
and its own CPU (for *** )?

Thanks.

Also, and advice for video cards appreciated.

Audigy 2 ZS in mine ok. I had issues with the onboard sound.
Graphics are fine with NVIDIA 5200 (no fan = no noise and it's certified
with BDA drivers) Got one with Svideo, DVI and VGA outputs.

Whatever POS sound chipset came with my DELL Optiplex GX260.

Nothing 3D or 5.1.
