    I have a question, I have a Intergrated sound card, it only has Speaker output, Line IN, and Mic IN. I would like to put this Older sound card (Sound Blaster 16 bit) which has LineOut. I am wanting to run my Mp3's through my computer and into my stereo, with haveing it preamped. I would like to keep the intergratd card running, for the simple fact that it sounds pretty decent. If any help can be provided, it is apprecaited.

    Thanks:D :D :D

    My suggestion is go to your local parts store (for god's sake not Best Buy or Fry's or the equivalent--you'll get hosed on the prices) and pick up a decent new sound blaster card for around $25 or $30 or so. (this will probably be the same one sold in a box at best buy for $50. You may even get a few bucks for your older sound blaster...but maybe not. To the best of my knowledge you can't have two sound cards running at the same time. To install another one, the onboard one has to be disabled.
