OK i have a simple question, feel free to post your opinion :)

i am an avid gamer and really enjoy playing visually stunning games. However, in some games i experience low-fps when i play them, this is fixed if i turn off the sound... Is creative soundblaster 16 bit too weak to play the quality of sound most new games have? should i invest in a new soundcard? if so, which?

thanks in advance for your advice :)

Hi there!

Basically the sound is what is slowing things down. you can TRY to resolve this without buying a new card...

Go into your Sound/Multimedia in Control Panel and under playback device, click the "Advanced" button. Lower the Hardware Accelleration and the Sample Rate and test your frams rate. If that doesn't help, then you'll want to get one of the newer sound cards on the market.

You can buy a SB Live Calue for under 30 bucks in alot of places. that would give you a decent card without spending too much money!


Good Luck!
