Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum eX

Hi Guys

I have the opportunity to buy a Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum eX for next to nothing but don't have a clue about sound cards and what are good specs.

I know the Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum eX is a few years old but thats about it, I have just bought a new mobo and don't know if the built in sound on that is better than the older sound card.

Heres the sound card

Could any sound card experts advise me whether or not this is a decent card that will improve on the integrated audio on the motherboard. Or whether its to old and not worth it.

Any help will be appreciated, Thanks

  1. The Audigy was a little quirky, with sound issues, and it was seriously improved with the Audigy 2 ZS [an excellent soundcard] so personally I wouldn't buy it its a waste of money.

    It also depends on what operating system you're running for any soundcard upgrading, but if we're talking WinXP, the Audigy 2 ZS and the newer X-FI series of Creative soundcards are some awesome soundcards.
