Hi guys, I just bought my first sound card as I wanted to see if I could get better surround in games than the onboard realtek sound. I was just wondering how I switch to the sound card once I install it. Also do I need to uninstall the realtek drivers incase of any conflicts?

My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Intel X58 and im getting Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro sound card.

Thanks

Un install the realtek, and install your drivers for your soundcard.

Plug in your headset/5.1/7.1 kit and go to your new soundcards GUI and set your settings based on what you got plugged in an whazam.

Also, I recomend gettting the drivers from the website instead of the disc.

you need to boot into your bios first and go under onboard devices and turn the sound card off or windows will just reinstall the driver on reboot.
