after some 'sound' advice

  pookie 19:11 01 Jan 04


windows xp home edition, 3 ghz barton and asus a7n8x-x mobo with onboard sound and creative 4.1 speakers - all mostly for fps games.
i can't get sound from the rear 2 speakers - only from front 2 and sub. i have posted about this before but i still couldn't fix it. having checked asus website and google it seems that many have had that problem with that asus mobo (the a7n8x delux has a different sound setup which is supposed to be very good).
any advice on a cheapish soundcard to go with the above setup? i believe that audigy and audigy2 are good - any views? finally, do i just disable onboard sound in bios before installing new card and new drivers or is there anything else in bios i need to change?

many thanks

thanks for the reply - looking at various mags there are different audigy2's and different prices (all from same supplier) - as I wouldn't need it for music cd's - just games - which would you recommend?

There should be no difference for games -- go for the best package.
