SB Live or SoundMax integrated audio. Tags: Sound Cards Audio Components Last response: October 13, 2007 10:04 AM in Components Share trekkie October 12, 2007 8:27:46 PM Hi. I've got hold on some old Creative Sound Blaster Live! cards. It seems to be the Value edition (Modell CT4830). So, here's the dilemma. I've got a rather powerfull computer with a Asus P5N SLI motherboard, which uses a SoundMax HD audio chip. Is this much better than the SB? I use my pc for gaming, mp3's, and movies. Is it any point in changing? Would it improve anything?

Sound cards are better than 99% of onboard sound. The sound quality will be better. carver_g October 13, 2007 1:46:56 AM Agree. Even the old Live! Value has EAX which really does make a noticeable difference in EAX enabled games. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
