I was reading the specs on my motherboard and realized that the onboard sound ran 24bit/192m sound.
I read the specs on the soundblaster audigy card and as you can see:

its only 24-bit/96kHz audio resolution, does this mean I'm better off not installing the sound card from my previous pc?
Dude, Assus P5B Deluxe has HORRIBLE onboard sound.
It crackles, hisses, and pops like crazy. I think they are being paid to advertise for Rice Krispies. Do some googling if you don't believe me. Furthermore, the P5B Deluxe drains your CPU resources to synthesize sounds.
I've installed a 10-year old SB Live! 5.1 SB0100 card and it sounds crystal clear compared to Assus.
