Great sound card4 Posted by: from: on My computers onboard sound was lacking in many areas. I wanted the ability to really fine tune the sound so started looking at sound cards. Many computers these days have built in sound to the motherboard and are not necessary. However if you're an audiophile like myself, you want more. This card works great and has given me no problems. If you can pick up one at a good price I recommend it. It will also drive your larger headphones that require more power. The only thing I didn't like about this card was the bright red light that can't be controlled and there were some driver complications in the beginning but was able to sort them out.

Very Good Performance4 Posted by: from: Perry township, Ohio on Going from an on board sound card to a separate sound card is like going from a receiver to separates. First, this sound card is well built and it comes with an external microphone and head phone jacks that you can control via a knob. This is an added benefits to be able to control the volume without either using your keyboard or mouse. The installation on my Dell 8900 was very easy. Just plug the board in, go to the mother board bios and disengage the on board sound card. Viola, you can now plug your speakers, head phones etc... to listen. The speakers I used is the Audioengine 5+, and the music coming out from it is wonderful. Bass are not boomy but tight. Highs are clean but not bright. I do not use the 5.1 channel and so do not have any review for that type of performance. Good card.

Gotta love Creative Labs5 Posted by: from: on When don't these guys push out a good product? Every time I buy Creative, I get an excellent product that stands the test of time. This card is great, pumps out top of the line quality and has awesome features to boot. The Sound Blaster control panel yields a whopping 11-band equalizer, with a mixer, different encoders, CrystalVoice, Scout Mode (for better hearing enemies in video games), SBX Pro Studio among other great features. It has everything you need and want from a sound card and looks fantastic inside your PC as well. Stop thinking and just buy it.
