Just how bad is the AC97 spec?

More about just ac97 spec
  1. cant say ive noticed much of excessive bass myself when ive used an ac97 chipset... all i can say is to try a variety of different drivers, seeing as how youve tweaked the sound settings a lot, im sure... ...the other option that comes to mind, is to purchase a cheap add in pci sound card (as you are only using onboard sound anyhow, so an up to date dedicated sound card wouldnt be any worse), it doesnt have to be from creative labs either, if youre just looking for better sound quality, and not a strictly high EAX version (above 2.0)
  2. I have 2 failed Audigys. Not too impressed with Creative Q&A, they seem to be built to fail in 1-2 years.
  3. CHAINTECH AV-710 7.1 Channels $21.99

    Cheep, does the job, there are some probs with install, but 199 out of 274 gave it 5 out of 5
