  1. The only choice for this is Sound Blaster Audigy.

    I like the other cards for other uses but if your really into the quality of your audio, Audigy.
    You can tell the difference between it and the other cards just from listening, at least I can.

    "dude your getting a dell", is that kid trying to say he wants to stick his 'dell' in you?

    Did you just recommend an Audigy over $500 professional cards?

  5. If you have a Guitar Center or another large music store nearby, go and see what they have, you should be able to find something.
