Buying A Sound Card and Speakers

  gcs_uk 23:22 05 May 03

Currently in the process of upgrading my computer, I have added a graphics card, CD/RW and in process of getting a 2nd hard drive.

However after listening to a friends computer I have realised that I have severly negelected the sound aspect.

So I want to buy a sound card and a set of speakers.

Does anyone know of any companies which are doing a deal on a sound card and speakers.

Ideally I only want to spend about £50 on the sound card and £50 on the speakers.

I know that I will not cutting edge state of the art technology for that price but I think it will be sufficient for my needs.

I bought a 64mb Nvidia graphics card off ebay for £40.00 and that does me fine for all my gaming needs.

So any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

have a look here if you want to see a range of cards

I am considering getting the hurcules one for £12.50 - obviously on a different budget to yourself, but ask yuorself what do you want it to do, or do you just want the best you can get for £50?

would be your best bet for the sound card. Should be around £45, u may even beable to pick up sound blaster audigy 2 for about £65 - but an audigy should cover your audio needs pretty soundly

Don't know where you are based but Morgan computers in London are selling videologic XR500 5.1 speakers for £35. My friend bought two sets last we could not believe our ears. They sound great both connecetd to pc and dvd player
