I want to upgrade to a soundcard since my onboard sound is giving me problems. The audio will work for a few minutes and then just stop working. Checked sound/volume properties, checked in device manager for any problems, and uninstalled and reinstalled audio drivers, but this problem keeps happening.

My onboard audio is 5.1 capable. I want to upgrade to a basic sound card but what I want to know is will it still give me 5.1 capability? Probably not right?

Thanks

If you buy a 5.1 channel capable card then of course you'll get 5.1 output. Well provided you have a 5.1 speaker set.
