  1. Whatever you do, don't get no crap Sound Blaster (any of their models).

    There are some US resellers that ship to Canada, you just need to look a little harder.

    See a real naked pic of Britney Spears <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/stick_e_mouse" target="_new">here</A>!!!
  2. There are no Win2k drivers available for the Aureal Vortex2 soundchip (AU8830) on ANY card (including Aureal's card, I/O Magik's, MX300, TB Montego II, etc.). The ones on the web are old beta drivers and were never finished. That sux because it's a great sound chip.
    Too many problems with Soundblaster cards, and they don't sound so good anyway. If you want good cheap sound, I recommend an ESS chip soundcard, like the MX400 or even a generic Canyon 3D chip card (~$20). If you want high quality sound I recommend the Phillips Acoustic Edge.

    I'm so tired of cookies I'd settle for spam!
  3. Personally, I would avoid the Philips cards.

    I got a Philips card because the box claimed Win2k compatability.

    The drivers suck - a lot of the features are disabled under Win2k. Although many people in this forum dislike it, my SB Live! Value was a better card than my Philips card uner win2k.
