HTPC: Home Theater Personal Computerwhats HTPC mean? and does the BGears card actually output in full dolby surround?
The Bgears card has the CMedia Oxygen chip that people like. The turtle beach card had mixed reviews, but if you're receiver is handling the dolby decoding, then you shouldn't have an issue, that is how I understand it. Thus, as long as your sound card has digital outputs, the sound card doesn't need all the bells and whistles, as the receiver will be processing the dolby signal, not the card.is that turtle beach card as good as the BGears? I've seen the turtle beach card on newegg, but i wasnt sure if it was good. I just want to make sure whatever card i get will have a digital optical output and also output in 5.1/7.1 because thats obviously the way my surround sound receiver sounds the best.
The fact that the last driver update for the Audigy2 ZS for Windows Vista was from March of 2007 I do not agree with "quality". There is no need to stick with Creative Labs sound cards now that EAX has been made moot by OpenAL. Future games aren't even going to use EAX at all. Call of Duty 4 is a prime example.which most likely isnt need..other than drivers..because they make quality products.
