    OMFG, i think that rhymed. NE way, I got my hands on Aureal Vortex 2 sound card, but the aureal site is down, permanetly by the looks of it.
    So is this card worth anything? or is it just old junk?
    thanks

    Aureal is out of business.

    Everything you need to get up and running should be readily available at;
    http://www.vortexofsound.com/

    Just make sure you get the proper drivers for the chipset and it should be a piece of cake.

    Truth be told, I really liked and still have (unused ATM) my Aureal card. I've since upgraded a bit, but the Aureal was a solid producer of decent sound for me.

    Thank goodness Vortex Of Sound is still around:thumb: it was always a great source of information, drivers and utilities even when the Aureal site existed.

    well I tried to install the vortex2 card in a w2k system using vortexofsound.com drivers, but no luck.
    Luckly XP picked it right up, so hopefully this card will be OK.
