Can't see why anyone would bother with these anymore. Nearly all mobos come with onboard sound, which is supported in windoze and linucks, and produces decent sound - plus with everything being digital connect your mobo up to a receiver digitally (optical/coaxial) and I can't see that there'd be any difference. All sound cards except the ones useful for pros/musicians will go the way of the dinosaurs.

I'm so out of the loop with soundcards these days, everything just seems to be Realtek and serves it's purpose. I remember lusting after an AWE64 in the 90's.

Snap! And bought one LOL

I agree that onboard [and mainly these days HD] sound is more than ample for anyone.

Reminds me when i drove all the way to pc world miles away to get a soundblaster 8 bit just so i could play Tie Fighter with sound on my pc lol! Those were the days!

No point in this particular card imo

For decent analog sound, you would be better with something like an Asus Xonar DS (or better).

Yup, got me an AWE64 Gold and paid a small fortune for it. I don't think i used 10% of all the software, leads and gadgets that came with it.

With regards to this deal, I too no longer buy sounds cards and just stick with onboard Realtek HD. That said, a soundcard like this can be a decent buy if you want to do some music creation but don't want to invest in a prosumer card. I would imagine this one has relatively low latency ASIO (2?) drivers so would work well with Cubase etc.

As someone said, this card is pretty pointless now. If you are interested in music creation, spend about £100 - £150 on a Creative / Asus card with the extra ports. If you are interested in getting the best sound in games then get a Creative X-Fi (between £50 - £80 depending on model/package). The card shown here has little advantage over onboard sound, but the X-Fi frees up the CPU and gives amazing environmental effects in games that take full advantage. Realtek sounds tinny and empty by comparison, particularly through headphones.
