    Soundblasters are good cards, and their support is pretty good too...I had a sb in my old computer and now I have the mx400 and they both work fine...still I'd probably go for the sb all the same...

    Thumbs up

    Thanx for reply. I've been searching the web and many other forums for "word of mouth" recommendations, and it seems that many people do prefer the SB. I appreciate your taking the time to respond.

    I'd go for the Sound Blaster too, my 6 year old SB 16 is still working perfect, after being transferred and reinstalled a dozen times. It also probably has the best compatibility, since the SB is the card that pretty much set the standards for sound cards in general. You won't find many programs that won't work with them.

    Question

    Ok, now that it looks like I should go w/ SB, is there a better card I should be looking at instead of the SB Live Value?

    Depends on what you want to do with it. They have the new 5.1 cards for tha dolby/dvd/audiophile crowd which are around 100 bucks at best buy...how much is the value? If you need mp3 software, there's the mp3 version...but as long as it's a sb live, you should be happy with it...
