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?

i have an old sound max chip and hate it, love the live! series. Sound cards are better than 99% of onboard sound. The sound quality will be better.

Agree. Even the old Live! Value has EAX which really does make a noticeable difference in EAX enabled games.
