    i got a new comp a little while ago, and i have been noticing the new sound card is both pretty damn sick and pretty damn annoying at different situations...

    i.e

    When i play games and maybe some music , the sound tends to be alittle deep, which sound cool

    but sometimes when you listen to a voice or some other musics, the sound tends to be alittle fuzzy...

    I'll post my sound card in 2 hrs or so cause i gtg now...

    PODNickerz, I have never been a fan of onboard sound, thats just my opinion.

    If i was you i would disable onboard sound and install a sound card into one of your pci slots on your motherboard.

    Your manual for your motherboard will tell you how to disable onboard sound, usually it is just a jumper setting.
