    I'm probably going to get the new ASUS P4P800 Deluxe Mobo and i was wondering whether the onboard sound, which is: ADI AD1985 SoundMAX 6-channel, is better or has the same features as my old Creative SoundBlaster Live! Value? (not sure if it is 5.1)
    If i get the mobo, should i install the Sound Card? Thanx for any suggestions! :wave:

    the onbard is better, the SBlive value cards are not 5.1

    I have the Asus A7N8X Deluxe, which seems to have the same onboard sound that one does...it is excellent, don't put your old SB card in =)

    Ya can always sell it and make a few bucks back but onboard sound has really come a long way in the last year. ;)

    what about the onboard sound on a Epox 8RDA+ or 8RDA3+ or a Asus A7N8X Deluxe VS. Soundblaster Audigy DE spec edit?

    coz im gonna get a audigy, so i can take advantage of my speakers, but if onboard is better, i might as well get a new mobo.

    if you're looking to just take advantage of you're speakers then the onboard sound of the A7N8X Deluxe will be more than enough. like I said earlier, the onboard sound with that mobo is excellent!
